ZMA+ZMA + increases energy production, fights fatigue and tiredness and enhances sleep quality. The synergy of the ingredients in ZMA+ (Zinc, Magnesium, Codyceps and Vitamin B6) allows for the maintenance of several physiological functions.
The ZMA+ formula includes zinc, which is a mineral responsible for the activation of about 300 different functions and enzymes in the body and is important for the proper function of hormones and insulin. Zinc stimulates GH and testosterone, which are both necessary for growth. It also counteracts the cellular aging process, contributes to the healing of wounds and ulcers and is able to control the metabolism and the body weight as a result. Furthermore, zinc helps to keep bones healthy, a property it has in common with magnesium, which in turn promotes muscle function.
Cordyceps sinensis is a medicinal mushroom extremely rich beta-glucans and polysaccharides. It is known for its reinvigorating, tonic properties useful in increasing physical energy, stimulating the immune system and improving endurance. Cordyceps are very interesting for athletes. Scientific research has shown that the consumption of Cordyceps increases the oxygen utilization capacity and improves the production of ATP, which results in energy. This is achieved because of the improved aerobic cellular respiration and, thus, more usable energy. Furthermore, it has been shown to improve the elimination of lactic acid produced during exercise. Cordyceps also has a significant impact on the regulation of glucose metabolism, both through the regulation of blood glucose levels (or blood sugar levels) and by increasing insulin sensitivity. Furthermore, it can reduce total cholesterol and increase HDL levels. It also has anti-aging properties, is useful for poor concentration, improves kidney function and has a hepatoprotective effect, even in the presence of viral hepatitis, fatty liver disease, liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. Finally, it modulates the sleep-wake cycle as well as the process of falling asleep, due to a possible sedative effect on the central nervous system.
Finally, like magnesium, vitamin B6 also helps reduce tiredness and fatigue and promotes energy metabolism.
