ZMA Anabolic Sports Recovery - 90 Capsules
  • NOW ZMA is an anabolic Sports Recovery with Zinc, Magnesium & Vitamin B-6

ZMA is a synergistic combination of Zinc and Magnesium designed to maximize absorption and promote recovery from exercise.  Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system.  Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function.  Because physical activity can increase the need for these two minerals, ZMA is the ideal supplement to aid in their replenishment.

Zinc is an essential mineral that plays an important role in many enzymatic functions. Found primarily in the kidneys, liver, pancreas, retina and brain.  Zinc also helps support healthy immune system functions and is an important component of bodily antioxidant systems.  Known for its immune boosting properties, this mineral has many health benefits. Researchers have found zinc to be such a critical element in human health that even a small deficiency is a disaster.

Zinc is so important because it is found in every tissue in the body and is directly involved in cell division. It is a powerful antioxidant, helping to prevent cancer, but zinc also is directly involved in proper endocrine function and the maintenance of ideal hormone levels. Zinc deficiency makes both men and women infertile and causes low libido. Low zinc also exacerbates the effects of stress on the body and accelerates aging.  Additionally, adequate zinc is necessary for optimal physical performance, energy levels, and body composition. Zinc affects protein synthesis and is required for proper function of red and white blood cells.

Magnesium deficiencies are extremely common for many Americans. Factors such as alcohol consumption, fluoride, and the consumption of certain foods either increase our need for magnesium, or decrease its absorption. Magnesium is not only one of the key nutrients required in both calcium utilization and protein synthesis, but it also plays a tremendous role in virtually every enzymatic reaction in our body.

Magnesium helps to build bigger and stronger muscles.  It allows the body to produce more Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1), a major contributor to the growth and strength of muscles. Furthermore, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the cell's energy store, must be created with help from Magnesium.

ZMA is the first nighttime anabolic formula developed specifically to enhance recovery by improving sleep efficiency. ZMA is a very effective sleep aid and is recommended to be taken 30-60 minutes before bedtime. Athletes often overlook how important it is to get a deep and restful sleep. Important functions such as healing, tissue repair, anabolic hormone production, and muscle growth are maximized during sleep, so quality sleep is critical to athletes.
