What is ZMA (Zinc monomethionine aspartate)?

Hi All,

Following on with my series of blog posts on supplementation I am going to look at ZMA (Zinc monomethionine aspartate).

This supplement is a combination of  zinc, vitamin B6 , magnesium, and aspartate, the formula is claimed to boost testosterone levels in the body.  It is also commonly claimed to boost post exercise recovery, strength and muscular mass.

There is a strong link to the use of zinc to improve cell growth, production and testosterone production, magnesium also helps in the reduction of the effect of cortisol a catabolic hormone (muscle breakdown).  Over all ZMA are sold as an anabolic aid (muscle building).

You should be careful not to exceed safe upper limits of these supplements, with zinc limited at 25mg per day and magnesium at 100mg.  Make sure you check these levels across all your supplements.

TOM
