Many bodybuilders and other weight-training athletes have tried prohormones in their search for a legal and effective way of increasing testosterone levels and muscle strength. However, new research has surfaced indicating that prohormones may not be the best choice for athletes looking to enhance their anabolic hormone levels and muscle strength. In fact, there is an amazingly effective new sports performance product from Beverly International called ZMA that has been clinically proven to significantly increase both anabolic hormone levels and muscle strength in trained athletes.
THE BASICS BEV ZMA is a scientifically designed, university laboratory tested anabolic mineral support formula. BEV ZMA contains zinc monomethionine aspartate plus magnesium aspartate and vitamin B-6 in the precise ratios used in the research. ZMA is a patent pending all natural product that is manufactured utilizing a unique proprietary process, which significantly enhances the absorption and utilization of both zinc and magnesium. ZMA was developed by Victor Conte, founder and director of BALCO Laboratories in Burlingame, California, which has been conducting sports nutrition research for more than 16 years. BALCO specializes in mineral and trace element assessment and performs research with elite Olympic and professional athletes. ZMA is the first nighttime anabolic formula developed specifically to enhance recovery by improving sleep efficiency. BEV ZMA is a very effective sleep aid. We recommend that you take three capsules 30-60 minutes before bedtime. Healing, tissue repair, anabolic hormone production and muscle growth are maximized during sleep, so quality sleep is extremely important to you.
RESEARCH STUDIES An independent study of ZMA was recently conducted at Western Washington University under the direction of sports performance researcher, Lorrie Brilla, Ph.D. Dr. Brilla measured the player's muscle strength and functional power increases. The players who took ZMA had 2.5 times greater strength gains than the placebo group. According to Dr. Brilla, "This study shows that anabolic hormone and muscle strength increases can be induced in already strength-trained athletes by using a novel zinc-magnesium preparation." This is the exact formula used in BEV ZMA. While zinc and magnesium deficiencies are common in the general population, deficiencies of these minerals are even more prevalent in athletes. Research shows that rigorous training results in significantly greater bodily losses of zinc and magnesium. Many world class athletes are reporting tremendous benefits from ZMA in the gym as well as on the athletic field. More than 250 NFL players are currently taking ZMA, and more than 25 IFBB pro bodybuilders have benefited from using ZMA. John Gamble, strength and conditioning coach for the Miami Dolphins, reports that "players using ZMA are cramping much less and seem to be getting a much more deep and restful sleep which significantly enhances their recovery."
A BETTER CHOICE THAN PROHORMONES Most of the prohormone experts have recommended that women in particular should not consume prohormones. However, BEV ZMA is a very effective product for female athletes because rigorous exercise and stress causes even greater bodily losses of zinc, and the recommended dosage of BEV ZMA contains 20 mg of elemental zinc. To summarize, ZMA is rapidly becoming the preferred natural testosterone-boosting supplement by strength athletes who were previously using prohormones. This is because ZMA has two very important advantages over prohormones. First, ZMA doesn't need to be cycled, because ZMA will not suppress your own endogenous production of testosterone like prohormones. Secondly, since BEV ZMA is not a prohormone or hormone precursor, it is not banned by any athletic organizations including the NCAA, NFL or the U.S. Olympic Committee.
DIRECTIONS: As a dietary supplement, men take 3 capsules daily, women take 2 capsules, preferably on an empty stomach, 30 to 60 minutes prior to bedtime. For best results, avoid taking with foods or supplements containing calcium. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Cellulose
