An Alternative for Muscle Maintenance

Muscle performance and maintenance are critical for professional athletes and fitness amateurs alike. Finding an effective non-steroidal supplement can be a challenge, which is why we created ZMA®.

What is ZMA®?

ZMA® is an anabolic support formula containing highly bioavailable zinc mono-L-methionine sulfate (which is the formulation for our product L-OptiZinc®), with the addition of zinc/magnesium aspartate and vitamin B6. Our unique, non-steroidal formula is carefully designed to help increase and maintain muscle performance, strength, and power.


How does ZMA® work?

ZMA® increases testosterone levels, insulin-like growth factor, strength, and power.  Testosterone and insulin-like growth factor are involved in muscle recovery and regeneration processes. Increases in testosterone and IGF are associated with greater muscle performance.


What research has been completed, and what do the results show?

Published peer-reviewed randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research shows that ZMA® increases testosterone, muscle strength, and power. Testosterone enhances muscle recovery and regeneration processes. The studies demonstrated that on average testosterone may be increased by 43% and give subjects 4x more muscle strength compared to those who took the placebo.


For whom is ZMA® intended?

ZMA® powder is a must for healthy adults who are serious about building a lean and muscular physique or for dedicated athletes who regularly train. Similar to starting a new exercise routine, we always recommend checking with a physician with any questions or concerns before beginning a new regimen.


This product is used by athletes all over the world. When asked about ZMA®, Dave Hawk, Former Mr. USA and Mr. World says, “as a former IFBB pro bodybuilder and lifetime fitness enthusiast, ZMA has been a staple supplement to my fitness regimen.”


Is the ZMA® formula available to add to a new or existing product line?

ZMA® is available for use in beverages and capsule grades. Application Friendly ZMA® 3000 is specially engineered for your powdered protein, energy or food formula applications. The material is flavor-neutral and has little mouthfeel. To learn more about ZMA®, please visit our website or call InterHealth at 1-800-783-4636.
