ZMA is a combination of zinc and magnesium aspartate and vitamin B6.
Zinc has a vital role in cell division, hormone balance and a healthy endocrine and immune system. It also helps with insulin sensitivity and this is good news for combating metabolic conditions such as type 2 diabetes. Adequate levels of zinc can also increase the anabolic hormones such as testosterone, human growth hormone and IGF-1. These hormones are important for torching body fat and building/maintaining lean muscle tissue.
Magnesium is involved in over three hundred bodily functions. It has a key role in the breakdown of fats and proteins in the production of testosterone, in the maintenance of a healthy heart beat and immune system. Magnesium converts energy within the muscle ready to be used for bouts of movement and exercise.
Magnesium deficiency can lead to weight gain and this is related to its role in controlling cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone which is produced when we are stressed. High levels can have serious implications on your health.
