Interhealth ZMA® is the perfect addition to a supplement that intends to help athletes reach their optimal performance. Our ZMA® contains the perfect balance of magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6. Many Americans, unknowingly, have deficiencies in zinc and magnesium and both minerals are vital to the overall function of the human body. Athletes, who put their body through strenuous workouts, require even more magnesium and zinc. Interhealth ZMA® supplement supports healthy nerve function, quick muscle recovery, and a healthy metabolism. Learn more about zinc and magnesium as individual minerals below.

Magnesium - Magnesium is an important mineral for nearly every function of the body. Although people are still learning about the totality of its function, magnesium has been shown to affect the following: brain function, hormonal interaction, one’s ability to relax, nerve function, blood pressure, metabolism, cardiac activity, bone strength, and the absorption of other minerals.

Magnesium deficiency is caused by our dietary choices. Dietary surveys have stated that nearly 70% of Americans are slightly to extremely deficient in magnesium.  Our body doesn’t produce magnesium on its own, and many Americans have a diet consisting of refined sugars and simple carbohydrates that do not carry magnesium content. A deficiency of magnesium, specifically in athletes can result in poor heart health, muscle cramps, high blood pressure, dizziness, fatigue, potassium deficiency, and slow brain function.

Athletes who get the recommended daily amount of magnesium will be able to train harder, recover faster, and sleep well.  Interhealth ZMA® can help athletes reach their peak performance by giving them a healthy body.

Zinc - Zinc is another vital nutrient for the body. Many Americans are also deficient in Zinc.  Zinc is an important mineral for healthy cell division, a healthy metabolism, and efficient recovery after a strenuous workout. Zinc also supports the function of the immune system. Athletes with a healthy immune system will be able to train more efficiently. Feeling ill or catching a common virus can affect an athlete's training and long-term goals. A healthy immune system will help athletes avoid potential illnesses.

Zinc and magnesium work together extremely well. The important part of supplementation is making sure that the quality of both minerals is balanced and supports the other. Interhealth ZMA® has the perfect balance of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6. Interhealth ZMA®  will be a solid addition to your supplement for athletes. Peer-reviewed, published clinical research shows that ZMA® supports healthy testosterone levels, muscle strength, and muscle power. Contact us to learn more.
