Review: Matrix ZMA

Matrix ZMA

Over the years I have tried a wide range of ZMA blends, I have always found that it helps me recover post workout and gives me the best sleep ever!  For those of you that do not know what ZMA is, it is a mixture of Zinc, Magnesium and B6 the full name used is Zinc-Magnesium Aspartate.   The ZMA formula itself is claimed to boost testosterone levels within the body, which will have an anabolic effect (muscle building) and also boost post exercise recovery, strength and muscular mass.

There is also a strong link to the use of zinc in order to improve cell growth and production where as magnesium acts to reduce the levels of cortisol which is a catabolic hormone (muscle breakdown).

Recently I was sent a bottle of ZMA from Matrix Nutrition, the bottle contained 240 capsules so that is a massive 4month supply.  I have been using these instead of my normal brand for the past few weeks,  the Matrix blend has 120mg of ZMA formula, 120mg Zinc, 27mg Calcium, and 12mg B6.

The ZMA pills themselves are a lot smaller that the ones that I usually take allowing them to be swallowed much more easily.  I took them as usual just before bed , on an empty stomach and they had the effect of helping me drift off into a deep sleep.  They also helped recovery after those heavy gym days, and as we are all aware the better you recover the better the growth.

I have used a number of the Matrix products and always found them to be very high quality and most importantly they work!  If you have not tried ZMA before, give it a go, you will not be disappointed!
