What is ZMA? What is it good for?


I first took ZMA years ago when I was working out on a regular basis.

ZMA is a ZINC, MAGNESIUM and B-6 supplement which claims to assist in proper cellular function, protein synthesis and tissue formation. Simply put, it helps metabolize proteins, fats and carbohydrates through your recovery phase which is usually when you're sleeping. And ZMA gives you a more restful sleep as well.

It appears that most brands of ZMA are taken half hour before bed, empty stomach and avoid taking it with DAIRY.

ZMA can be taken by both men and women and from the different brands I tried, men are to take 3 capsules and night and women take 2 capsules...but be sure to read the label for the correct dosage.

For those that do train, i feel that ZMA is a great supplement to help you with recovery and get a restful sleep. And ZMA isn't that expensive at all so it's a perfect supplement to add to your nightly routine.

The brand I usually buy is manufactured by Now Foods; simply called Now Sports ZMA. You should be able to find it at your health store or on Amazon.
