What is ZMA?

ZMA is basically a supplement comprised of a selection of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6. It has been specially formulated using bioavailable ingredients to help athletes and physically active individuals from losing these essential nutrients as they exercise. These ingredients are all essential for a number of important biological processes within the human body, yet despite this, more than 40% of all adults are deficient in at least one of these ingredients. On top of that, as mentioned, frequent exercise can result in a loss of these nutrients, so replacing them is absolutely vital.

How does it work?

Zinc, Magnesium and vitamin B6 all play a key role in a number of internal processes within the human body, especially protein synthesis. As we exercise and workout, these nutrients are lost, either via basic metabolic processes, or via perspiration as we sweat. Put simply, ZMA supplements are designed specifically to help replace these lost nutrients. Studies however, have found that increased ZMA ingestion could result in increased athletic performance, which in turn could result in a more aesthetic looking physique. As the nutrients are so vital for so many biological processes within the human body, ensuring we get enough is absolutely essential.

What are the main benefits of ZMA?

There are a number of benefits associated with ZMA, which are related not only to our health and well-being, but also to the way we perform athletically. Here’s a look at some of the most prominent benefits, followed closely by a quick summary:

Improved immune system

As mentioned, ZMA plays a vital role in countless internal processes, including in the functioning of the immune system. Studies however, have found that ZMA supplementation can help prevent oxidative stress on the body and can help to boost immunity. The main ingredient responsible for this is the Zinc, though the others are still hugely beneficial. The stronger your immune system, the fitter and healthier you will be as a result.

Increased testosterone levels

Studies have also revealed that ZMA supplementation could help to greatly increase a person’s natural testosterone levels, which in turn, will provide countless other benefits. Testosterone is essential for fertility and libido, as well as for muscle growth, strength, athletic ability, and recovery. By increasing your ZMA consumption, you can therefore help increase natural testosterone production, which will provide numerous benefits.

Fat loss

Another great reason to supplement with ZMA is the fact that it assists with fat loss. To begin with, the ingredients all play a key role in a person’s basic metabolic function, which basically means that the supplement will help boost the metabolism. Not only that, but ZMA supplements also help promote healthy thyroid function, which in turn means that the more active the thyroid is, the more efficient their metabolisms will become as a result.

More energy

Obviously if your metabolism is more efficient than usual, you will be burn more calories, and convert them into energy much easier. This means that ZMA supplements can help to increase your energy levels, which in turn will make workouts and exercise more efficient.

Other benefits include:

  • Fat loss
  • Increased energy levels
  • Strong immune system
  • Reduced risk of ZMA deficiency
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Increased muscle mass
  • Increased libido
  • Increased post-workout recovery
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Increased strength levels
  • And more...

How and when it should be taken

ZMA commonly comes in tablet form and is best taken on an empty stomach, around one hour before going to sleep. Experts recommend avoiding using the supplement with calcium supplements.

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 3 Capsule(s) 1 time(s) per day. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications or natural health products. Take with food. Store in airtight container, protected from light.

ZMA VS Zinc and Magnesium

So, you’re probably wondering why people don’t just simply purchase a zinc supplement and a magnesium supplement and use them individually. ZMA uptakes have been found to be much quicker than when supplementing individually, plus on top of that, ZMA supplements have been found to yield much more impressive strength and athletic performance boosting effects than a zinc and magnesium supplement alone. The vitamin B6 is also a very important factor as it helps boost immunity and general health and well-being in the process.

What can you stack with it?

ZMA is a great supplement when used individually, although it can also be stacked with other supplements in the process. Some people for example, will stack ZMA with GABA right before bed. Tribulus is a potent testosterone booster, so combining it with ZMA, which also provides T-boosting effects, is a great way of really helping to ramp up your natural testosterone levels. For athletic purposes, some people stack it with creatine monohydrate and for health purposes, stacking it with glutamine is very beneficial, as glutamine has also been found to increase the immune system.

Potential side effects

As with all supplements, before using any new product you first speak to your doctor and let them know what you plan on using. Whilst ZMA supplements are considered to be amongst some of the safest in the world, some users have still reported mild side effects, including:

  • Slight numbness and tingling
  • Unusual dreams
  • Loud snoring
  • Increased hair growth

Known Adverse Reactions: Some people may experience diarrhoea.

Do not like my pills in a ziploc bag. Much prefer a pill container.
Answer: Hi Wayne, thank you so much so much for your feedback. The main reason we are using these resealable bags is because they leave less of a footprint ecologically. We are always trying to figure out ways to do our part in conserving the our environment and reduce waste.

Sleep is Critical!!
Luke B. on 20/11/2016
Toronto
Being a shift worker most of my life (emergency services) sleep has always been an issue for me.
Sometimes, I'm just simply unable to sleep as I'll be up all night working. I always try my best.. but sometimes it just doesn't happen.
As I've gotten a little bit older, I have seen the tole little sleep takes on my body. (I'm pushing 30)

ZMA's are a godsend. I did a lot of research online for a natural sleep-aid, as I felt like I needed a little extra help coming home after night shift.
It can be hard to fall asleep at 7am with the sun trying to blast through your window.

Enter the ZMA world...
- You will sleep like a baby in a coma
- You'll have crazy, lucid dreams that make it feel like you're part of the Neverending Story
- Your girlfriend/wife will tell you that you giggle/talk/twitch in your sleep
- You'll wake up feeling extremely well rested

But most of all... you will RECOVER BETTER using this simple supplement. I will never go without them ever again.
I don't always use them.. if I am extremely tired I don't feel the need.
It's strictly for after night shifts when I need to crash, or if I know I need to get my 8hrs and I'm not tired yet... they will put you to bed.

Start taking sleep seriously. Sleep is recovery. Your body needs to repair, and ZMA's will help you do that.
You'll truly be amazed how much better your workouts become once you start taking sleep seriously.

5/5 for CP.. the price is comparable to other brands.. however BE WARNED
Other brands add GABA and Melatonin to their ZMA's which is unnecessary.
CP = Zinc and Magnesium. You always know what you're getting with them.

Amazing product.
Answer: Hi Luke, thank you so much for the amazing reviews and feedback.

Find it hard to take ZMA sometimes because of the suggested administration of the dosage as to be taken at teh end of the day, (before bed) 3 hours prior or post taking any other supplements or medications, and limit dairy products.....

I'm taking 3 or 4 other supplements and eat whey protein and greek yogurt a fair bit..... kinda hard to take ZMA as suggested.

I questioned if I should write a review for this product or not. It was highly recommended to me to assist in recovery from adrenal fatigue. I only took one of these pills and seemed to have a fairly serious reaction. I woke up that evening with a serious cough every time I took in a deep breath or yawned. I'm talking like a whooping cough that leaves you winded. I spent the whole next day in bed. After that my symptoms seemed to go away as fast as they came. It seems weird that this pill could cause this reaction but honestly I'm afraid to try it again. When in doubt, listen to your body. 2 stars because of fast shipping and affordability.

Very new to this product but after last night's sleep I would be confident that it works! Primarily using it to improve quality of sleep, and side benefits are improved muscle growth, etc. Since my quality of sleep improved so much from one night's dose (2 capsules) I am looking forward to the other positive side effects!

With ZMA and Gaba stacked together, my nights of sleeping haven't been as deep & solid as they would without. Great investment for a better sleep and all around gains. Will order again and again.

Very restful sleep and crazy dreams
Rick on 16/01/2014

I usually wake up every 1.5-2 hours during the night. Since starting to take ZMA I wake up maybe once. I'm having very vivid dreams and apparently that's a sign you're getting restful sleep. I tried melatonin but for some reason it doesn't agree with me. I'm very lethargic the next day after taking it. With ZMA, I wake and i'm good to go. I don't agree with the review about not taking it with milk or whey. I carb backload and had a huge glass of milk and cookies about 30 mins before bed. ZMA still worked fine; very deep sleep and crazy dreams again last night.
