ZMA Overview

NOW Foods ZMA is a premium ZMA combination featuring the patent-pending blend of zinc monomethionine aspartate, magnesium aspartate and vitamin B6. NOW is a top seller among our ZMA supplements and one of the best ZMA values.

When ZMA - a patented combination of zinc, magnesium and B6 - was first introduced, it was marketed as a testosterone booster based on study results that generated a considerable amount of discussion and controversy. It may only be an effective test booster in younger athletes, or in only those who are zinc-deficient, or there might be other factors involved but it's fair to say it hasn't lived up to the hype that surrounded it's introduction.

That's a shame because even if it did nothing for testosterone, ZMA is still a great recovery formula. In hindsight, it probably would have been more accurate, if a lot less exciting, to market ZMA as such, instead of the Next Big Test Booster; after all, all three nutrients in ZMA are depleted by exercise and training, and all three nutrients are essential for recovery, recuperation and tissue building, too. Since most of these processes occur during sleep, it also makes sense to take ZMA at bedtime, just as the labels have always suggested. So ZMA might not be a great test booster, but as a recovery formula NOW ZMA is an inexpensive way to tighten up some of the nutritional slack undermining your strength and size gains.

ZMA Description from NOW
ZMA is a synergistic combination of Zinc and Magnesium designed to maximize absorption and promote recovery from exercise. Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function. Because physical activity can increase the need for these two minerals, ZMA is the ideal supplement to aid in their replenishment.

Sleeping like a baby!

I've been taking ZMA for over two months and have been getting some good quality sleep thanks to this stuff. Previously I was'nt getting much sleep and would get up in the morning with a sore back and shoulders from being tense at night. I've been recovering from workouts about 50% faster also. This stuff really works for me to get a nice deep sleep and I've started noticing more vivid dreams as well.

Great

Very good product helps me sleep deeply. I was starting to awaken nightly even though I was extremely tired, then I tried this product and now I sleep like a baby. Sometimes I do not even get a full night sleep; however it's deep sleep, so it is still rejuvenating. 5 stars due to price v.s. benefit.

Good recovery supplement, not really the test booster it's been claimed to be

ZMA is combination of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6, all of which are intimately involved in tissue repair and recovery. So ZMA is great if you want to make sure you're getting complete recovery. That's the best reason to use ZMA in my opinion. Another is that men's multis don't provide optimal amounts of zinc or magnesium. ZMA has also been marketed as a testosterone booster, but I think that would only be the case if a man were deficient in zinc to begin with. The study upon which that marketing is based seems to suggest this. But that's not to take anything away from it as a recovery supplement, I think it's a great idea in that regard. I use 3 capsules on any night that I've trained.
