Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B6 & Performance Enhancement

Zinc and magnesium have been seen to be low in athletes and/or recreationally active individuals.

A zinc deficiency has been associated with impaired immune response, elevated risk of overtraining and decreased performance.

Research has shown that zinc and magnesium can increase anabolic hormone status and strength gains during training making ZMA (a zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 supplement) an ideal starter supplement to help boost muscle gains and promote healthfulness.

Particularly encouraging results have been seen in those that are new to training, or those who have reached a plateau.
