Why

ZMA contains two minerals whose deficiency in humans is widespread. By rectifying this deficiency users optimise health, sleep better and for men who are deficient in zinc, enhance testosterone levels.

When

ZMA is best taken before bedtime on an empty stomach. By taking at this time it can have an acute effect whereby it aids relaxation and sleep quality.

Who

ZMA can be taken by anyone who is deficient in the minerals zinc and magnesium, both of which are widely deficient in athletes who in any event have higher needs for both minerals due to depletion of both when exercising.

Predator Nutrition ZMA 120 Caps Review

Hydrapharm is a company dedicated to delivering the best supplements possible and even for a fairly standardised product their ZMA stands apart in a field of supplements with the name ZMA in it. To understand what makes Hydrapharm ZMA different it is instructive to look more closely at some of the ZMA supplements on the market.

Most ZMA supplements use out there use forms of zinc and magnesium where these minerals are bonded to aspartate, citrate, oxide or some other chemical bonded to elemental zinc and magnesium (you cannot take zinc and magnesium without being bonded to something).

The problem with magnesium or zinc supplements which use aspartate, oxide, carbonate, or citrate forms is that they result in a great deal of the magnesium and zinc not reaching the body at all. For instance in a 500mg magnesium oxide pill less than 12mg will reach the body, the rest being broken down in the gut, bound to phytates or otherwise not absorbed by the body.

As you might guess, these forms of zinc and magnesium are cheap to manufacture, and to consumers hooked on looking at the mg amount of a capsule they are an easy way to lure someone to part with their money. Unfortunately, with poor uptake into the body most of your money is going to go to waste.

As well as not working that well some of these forms have particular issues some people may not know about.

Aspartates - Aspartates are known to be an excitatory neurotransmitter which can potentially stimulate neurons to the point of injury or cell death. There is a longstanding controversy over the use of aspartates in sweeteners (Aspartame) due to precisely the fact that some research shows it can have a toxic effect with brain damage being one serious ill effect which has been exhibited in animal research models.

Magnesium Citrate - This is the same ingredient found in many laxatives. It's stool loosening effect compromises nutrient uptake in the body and indeed can lead to depletion of electrolytes. Another form of magnesium which should be avoided.

 

Introducing Hydrapharm ZMA

Hydrapharm have done their homework and incorporated bisglycinate forms of zinc and magnesium which is not only considered the best absorbing forms of both minerals in one recent study*, it also is the only form which is not broken down by stomach acid and bound up by phytates. Compared to other forms the bisglycinate form is much more bioavailable and has none of the side effects seen with other forms of these minerals.

One of the benefits of using bisglycinate is that you do not need to use as high a dose which helps eliminate potential toxicity risks seen with poorly absorbed forms like oxide and citrate forms of zinc and magnesium.

ZMA is one of the most popular products on the market, due to its effectiveness in supporting healthy testosterone levels, improving sleep quality and overall health. ZMA is an essential supplement, since many athletes are deficient in Zinc and Magnesium and thus limit themselves from achieving their full potential. By eliminating those deficiencies you will be able to train harder, feel better and achieve better results.

Great

Got a free bottle with an order, definitely get a better deeper sleep, price is ok but could do with more servings

Great sleep

I have a hard time with sleep normally and having tried a lot of the sleep supplements on the market I decided to give this a go. To be honest ZMA normally doesn't work that well for me but I noticed the formula to this was different to other ZMA's. After taking it it takes about 5 minutes at most for me to fall asleep and normally it would take me at least 30 minutes. Better still, despite having two young children in the house screaming the house down in the morning I can sleep through without being disturbed while my wife sorts them out in the morning. Any supplement which can keep you asleep with babies screaming gets 5 stars all day long!
