Lean Muscle Building: Easy as ZMA
Serious athletes know that the key to maximizing results is taking advantage of every waking hour.
Hard work in the gym, smart choices at the dinner table and adequate rest all play important roles.
But what if there was a way to promote lean mass even during non-waking hours? There is – ZMA picks up where you leave off while you sleep.
ZMA is the ultimate anabolic mineral formula!
What is ZMA?
ALLMAX ZMA is a powerful, all-natural supplement that is often referred to as an anabolic mineral formula. It combines precise amounts of Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6.
Individually, these ingredients have significant effects that are of particular interest to athletes. Let’s discuss each key ingredient separately to understand how ZMA works synergistically.
Zinc aids in the maintenance of normal testosterone levels.
Zinc plays a number of important roles in the body. It is an essential mineral in the processes of protein synthesis, tissue growth and repair, and metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, fat and alcohol. In addition, Zinc aids in the maintenance of normal testosterone levels and inhibits the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. Deficiency of this vital mineral can be especially troublesome for athletes. One study noted that inadequate Zinc intake was related to fatigue and alterations in the total work capacity of muscle.
Magnesium promotes relaxation and can lead to increases in strength.
Magnesium plays a vital role in optimum health. It is important in hundreds of enzyme systems and the transmission of nerve signals throughout the body. Magnesium is indispensable in the production and transport of energy, protein synthesis and manufacturing bones. This mineral also promotes relaxation and can lead to increases in strength. Perhaps most importantly, a recent study found that the presence of Magnesium led to an increase in the amount of available testosterone. Magnesium deficiency is linked with a plethora of problems, including muscle weakness, anxiety, cramps and osteoporosis.
Vitamin B6 works synergistically with Magnesium and Zinc to facilitate absorption.
Vitamin B6 supplementation is important as the body doesn’t produce it naturally. That doesn’t mean it’s not important though; quite the contrary. Vitamin B6 works with enzymes in the body to regulate hormone levels, metabolize energy and create amino acids. In addition, the vitamin promotes efficient absorption of Zinc and Magnesium.
Together, the ingredients of ZMA are especially potent. Experimental data has indicated that ZMA supplementation significantly increases muscle strength. In addition, ZMA resulted in a 30% increase in free and total testosterone, and the maintenance of insulin-like growth factor (IFG-1) levels. Muscle strength and sleep quality also improved significantly.
ZMA is completely natural
While such dramatic results seem like they could only be the product of an exotic, banned substance, ZMA is completely natural and legal. And to boot, there are no known side effects associated with taking ZMA.
ALLMAX ZMA is suitable for men and women and is the perfect way to maintain muscles in anabolic zones, even as you sleep. With ZMA you can literally sleep on the job!
