ZMA Max Power & Energy - Testosterone booster (60 vegecaps)
ZMA Max testosterone booster is a combination of Zinc, Magnesium and B6 required for any person wanting to perform at their highest potential. The ratio that has resulted in the greatest performance enhancement has been researched and is exactly as provided in this formulation.
Additional Information For Sporting Activities:
Zinc, Magnesium & B6 (ZMA) – zinc and magnesium deficiencies are common in the general population but are even more prevalent in athletes. Rigorous exercise, stress, inability to source
it direct from the diet, and sweating are believed to result in significant bodily losses of zinc and magnesium. Over a five day period of exercise, one research study concluded, zinc levels are believed to drop as much as 33%!
In 1998 the mineral status of 250 NFL players were tested. Over 70% of the players were either depleted or deficient in both zinc and magnesium. Supplementing very bio-available forms of zinc and magnesium for eight
weeks were found to optimize these elements, which resulted in dramatic increases in anabolic hormonal levels and strength in the athletes (250% greater strength gains than placebo).
While zinc is well known for its role in the natural production of testosterone, recent research suggests magnesium can reduce the plasma levels of cortisol (the catabolic, stress hormone) by an average of 25%
during an entire exercise period and also decrease the subjects heart rates by an average of 8%. A study conducted by Lorrie Brilla, Ph.D., reported that “a group of competitive NCAA football players who took a specific ratio of bio-available Zinc, Magnesium and B6 (ZMA) nightly during an eight-week spring training program had 2.5 times greater muscle strength gains than a placebo group. The strength of the ZMA group increased by 11.6% compared to only a 4.6% increase in the placebo group. “The ZMA group had a 30% increase in free and total testosterone levels compared to a 10% decrease in the placebo group... The ZMA group also had a slight increase in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels compared to a 20% decrease in the placebo group”.
Zinc plays an essential role in androgen metabolism and interaction with steroid receptors. Zinc deficiency in male rats reduced circulating luteinizing hormone and testosterone concentrations, by 34% and 68%, respectively. The livers of zinc-deficient rats exhibited a higher aromatization of testosterone to estradiol than did those of controls. Concentration of hepatic estrogen receptors in the liver cytosol was significantly higher in zinc deficient rats. Zinc deficiency caused a 41% reduction in the number of androgen binding sites and a 57% increase in the number of estrogen receptors. Zinc also maintains the structural integrity of DNA and plays an important role in synthesis of nucleic acid and protein.
Vitamin B6 is one of the water-soluble B vitamins that your body needs on a regular basis. B6 also helps with the absorption of magnesium into the body.
Be aware most brands of supplements on the market also contain calcium, which inhibits the uptake of both of these minerals. Fillers are sometimes listed on the label but often are not. In addition most of them contain them in the forms of oxides, gluconates and sulfates which are not well absorbed.
Women also greatly benefit from Zinc and Magnesium supplementation.

Effective relief for sore muscles
Posted by Heike on 7th Aug 2014
I find this product very effective for my recovery after a hard workout. Muscle soreness disappears a lot quicker and I also sleep better. My performance has increased immensely since I started to take ZMA on a regular basis. I recommend this product highly to anyone who doesn't want to suffer from soreness for days.
