Deficiencies in Zinc and Magnesium are common in athletes for a couple of reasons; one, with intense and frequent training, the demands on your reserves of these two elements increases dramatically and two, both of these critical elements have become far more scarce in our modern diets.
This can result in reduced levels of zinc, magnesium or both leading to compromised athletic performance, reduced recovery from training, increased incidence of cramps and general fatigue. Zinc Supplements can be used by all athletes wanting to gain lean muscle size and strength. Benefits of supplementing with zinc include correcting low zinc and/or magnesium levels that can help with:
- Correction of Low Test Levels
- Increased Strength and Endurance
- Quicker Recovery between Workouts
- Increased Sleep Quality
- Reduction in Anxiety or Nervousness
40% of the Magnesium in our bodies can be found in muscle tissue. The remaining 59% in our bones, with 1% distributed in extra-cellular fluid. Studies have purported that the average person today consumes roughly 60% of the dietary magnesium than they did less than 100 years ago; this puts people below the RDA level to just maintain a basic level of health, never mind being highly active.
Getting the right forms of Zinc and Magnesium are absolutely essential to hard training athletes. Effective intestinal absorption of both of these elements has been the number one challenge of supplement makers. This is why we knew that it was essential to create ZMX2 with ingredients that had the highest levels of absorption combined with the level of potency.
ZMA, or zinc magnesium aspartate, is a popular supplement among athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts. Both zinc and magnesium have been shown to reduce muscle fatigue and either raise testosterone levels or prevent a fall in testosterone due to exercise. Studies have suggested that zma supplements may not only assist in building muscle, they may also have a positive effect on your immune system, endurance and muscle recovery. Another zma benefit is it improves sleep quality. You can read more about how our ZMA capsules can benefit your supplement routine in our blog or you can check out our proprietary ZMA supplement (ZMX) in the product section of our store.
ADVANCED CHELATED MAGNESIUM, COVALENTLY-BOUND ZINC AND HIGHLY BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE VITAMIN B6
THE ULTIMATE IN VITAMIN BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY
Vitamin B6 is an essential cofactor nutrient for the effective metabolism of zinc and has positive impacts on blood oxygenation levels, reduction of inflammation factors and has been reported to improve cognitive function (especially in people with ADHD and older adults). Instead of using run-of-the-mill Vitamin B6, we’ve upgraded this formula to the biologically active form known as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, or just P5P. Using this more potent and active form means that your body can use it without having to convert it.
Old School ZMA was good in its day; but ZMX2 is a next generation supplement using the latest technology in elemental chelation.iu
ZMX2 uses only naturally-derived rice flour, bran and concentrate to bind the nutrients in a Vegan Capsule to ensure that you are getting none of the typical excipients found in other ZMA products. Gluten-Free and Vegan; ZMX2 is a product you can feel good about.
