- Zinc + Magnesium + Vitamin B6ZMA by Olimp is a mineral complex based on a formula that encompasses zinc chelate, magnesium and as cofactor of absorption and transportation, amongst other functions, vitamin B6:
- Zinc (from L-OptiZinc® and aspartate): contributes to the maintenance of concentration in regular levels in plasma of testosterone and cellular protection against oxidative damage (acting as an antioxidant).
- Magnesium: contributes to muscle contractile function, establishing optimal energy metabolism, support for protein synthesis and the reduction of fatigue and tiredness.
- Vitamin B6: is attributed the functions of contributing to the formation of red blood cells and participant in hormonal regulation.
Maintaining correct levels of both minerals is essential, but becomes even more important in the case of an athlete, given that they recovery and above all hormonal state can depend on these elements. Zinc is linked to the regulation of testosterone levels in blood plasma, with this hormone being of vital importance in relation to muscle development, energy levels and within the field of sexuality.
In addition, this mineral acts as an antioxidant, preventing cellular damage caused by oxidation. For its part, magnesium is linked to maintaining optimal muscle contractile function, and in the reduction of fatigue and tiredness derived from physical activities. Vitamin B6 acts as cofactor for absorption and transportation of nutrients, and is also involved in hormonal regulation.
