Description

What is ZMA?

ZMA is an impressive strength and growth amplifier. These fantastic ZMA tablets play a significant role in protein synthesis and the hike in hormone levels in the body which act to encourage the growth of muscle tissue. These tablets provide a high and substantial quantity of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 which are all key to healthy biological functions but can quite often become drained through perspiration or metabolism. ZMA has also been shown to promote improved sleeping patterns if taken shortly before you go to sleep. A better night’s sleep equals quicker recovery times and improved gains.

It is a really strong idea to think about adding ZMA to your daily supplement and workout routine because zinc is actually one of the most important nutrients that most people do not get enough of in their diets. Some fantastic sources of zinc are a crab, pork shoulder, beef shanks and oysters, all of which are foods that might not appear in your diet regularly. A study written in the nutritional journal determined the overall food intake, body composition, and biochemical profile of endurance athletes. The article found that, while overall intake of protein was plentiful among the athletes, they were still quite some way off in a few essential nutrients, zinc being a principal one.

The Benefits

The most amazing feature about this supplement is the many benefits it provides. Some of the most important benefits are:

Zinc – plays a part in many metabolic processes. Anyone involved in sports or fitness has been reported to have decreased levels of zinc because of increased sweating or a poor diet. A shortage of zinc can impair the immune system function and reduce your performance. Zinc also plays a very pivotal role in cell growth and protein synthesis. Without a sufficient intake of zinc, testosterone levels can fall which has been shown to affect the performance of the liver.

Magnesium – is used for over 300 metabolic functions in the human body. It is of great importance for a healthy immune system, muscle contractions and a strong nervous system. An insufficient amount of magnesium in the human body is a major cause of a poor night’s sleep and might also lead to hormone insensitivity. Magnesium also plays a part in other important roles such as the healthy maintenance of the cardiovascular system, bone health and of course metabolic rate. This amazing mineral can also offer a wide assortment of performance and physique benefits. In fact, in many pieces of research, it has been shown that it can help increase fat burning, enhance muscle size and amass more muscle strength, not to mention overall health and well-being.

Vitamin B6 – is always working hard behind the scenes, it’s working on helping the body to change protein into energy. Latest studies show that it works with B12 and folic acid to lower levels of some amino acids in the blood, which in turn can help to greatly lower the risk of a heart attack. Vitamin B6 is an incredibly important mineral as it also has a role in a variety of processes in your body functions, it is important for muscular, immune, digestive, nervous and cardiovascular system function. The Vitamin B6 mineral is essential for the correct brain development and function also to make the hormone serotonin, which control our moods. We also know that B6 Vitamin helps to assist the body in the formation of melatonin, which is incredibly important for a good night’s sleep and regulating your internal clock.

Further information

Research indicates that one of the best times to take ZMA is every night before bed. A study performed by Western Washington University had American football players supplemented with a placebo or ZMA at night time before bed during an 8-week spring workout program. The study showed that the football players supplementing with ZMA had an incredible 30 percent rise in their anabolic hormone levels and a small but significant 5 percent rise in levels of the hormone IGF-1. The football players that took a placebo supplement had a 10 percent drop in anabolic hormone levels and a very considerable 20 percent decline in IGF-1 levels. Along with the changes in their testosterone levels, the ZMA supplemented football players made compelling gains in power and strength, and also achieved improved sleeping conditions than the placebo group. A better night’s sleep also helped them recover from the tough workouts a lot quicker leaving them ready to kill the next workout.

Zinc also plays a pivotal role in the maintenance of thyroid hormone creation. This can be the key to making sure your metabolic rate (the number of calories burned in a day) is firing on all cylinders. This helps with burning body fat. When you are lacking important zinc in your diet it can restrict thyroid hormone creation, and when thyroid hormone is compromised it means you won’t function as well and can result in a metabolic rate that is lower than usual, this makes it even harder to burn that unwanted body fat. Thyroid hormone studies show that people with an inadequate diet or that train really hard can be lower in the key nutrient zinc, metabolic resting rate and thyroid hormone levels can drop significantly. Zinc is also an extremely important mineral for helping with controlling levels of the hormone leptin. This critical hormone is of great importance for giving your metabolic rate a helping hand with running at optimal levels, not only that but can also suppress your appetite. Having inadequate levels of zinc has been shown to seriously have an effect on leptin levels.
