IRONMAXX ZMA - 100 caps
IRONMAXX ZMA - 100 caps
ZMA is a synergistic blend of two minerals, zinc and magnesium, and a vitamin, Vitamin B-6 or pyridoxine. All three of these compounds are extremely important in biological processes, and USDA studies have shown that less than 70% of Americans get enough zinc, and less than 40% get enough magnesium. It has also been shown that increased exercise can lead to losses of vitamins and minerals. Zinc is particularly important from a bodybuilding standpoint due to its role in testosterone production. The old story about oysters being an aphrodisiac is probably related to the fact that they are high in zinc. Low levels of zinc and magnesium have a strong adverse effect on muscle growth . So, it's obvious that people need these minerals and vitamins. What makes ZMA different is the form of the zinc, and the ratio in which it is combined with magnesium and pyridoxine.
A recent study showed that zinc in the form of zinc monomethionine aspartate combined with magnesium aspartate and Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) when given to training athletes resulted in 43.7% higher testosterone levels and 25% greater IGF-1 levels, as well as a 2.5 times greater strength increase than a placebo group . What this means is that taking this supplement over a period of eight weeks gave the subjects higher testosterone levels and greater strength increases than the people not taking ZMA.
