Thanks to their delivery, the electrolyte balance in the body is improved. Zinc and magnesium also strengthen the bones, teeth and have a positive effect on the proper functioning of the muscular and nervous systems.
These elements are also helpful in fighting fatigue and improve the quality of sleep and regeneration. The components of ZMA also have proven their effect on stress reduction. Zinc additionally helps maintain normal levels of testosterone and insulin, and positively influences the condition of hair and nails. Zinc also helps to improve eyesight. Deficiencies in these elements may result in fatigue, stress or even the development of diseases such as hypertension or diabetes.
Both zinc and magnesium are found in nature in quite large doses, and can be found, inter alia, in vegetables, legume seeds, dark bread, or seafood.
