A MAK-Honest Review of ZMST
Supplement Type: Health
Nutrients deficiency is a common dilemma for some of us as we live in an extravagantly occupied world of fast food and all, we don’t get all the efficient amount of nutrients our body should have. Consequently, unable to get these important nutrients could be a trouble and can lead to a host of disorders. With that said, ATP Science has just released a formula that will provide you with an ample amount of the nutrients Zinc, Magnesium, Selenium, and Taurine - ZMST. Sustaining your body with these nutrients will let you avoid cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, sleep disorders, mental health problems, and even musculoskeletal problems like osteoporosis and muscle aches and pains.
When to take ZMST?
MAK Fitness recommends taking one to three capsules, one to three times per day depending on your level of deficiency.
If you suspect deficiency you can take up to 3 ZMST capsules 3 times daily. As your levels increase your absorption slows down and you get watery loose stools. If or when this happens reduce your dose to 2 and then 1 capsule 3 times daily.
Long-term taking 1 to 3 capsules of ZMST daily will maintain healthy magnesium levels.
How does ZMST work? Pros?
ZMST is a 120-capsule formula that is a combination of 2.5mg Zinc gluconate, 100mg Magnesium Citrate, 6.25mg Organic selenium from yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and 25mg Taurine. It is an essential supplement for optimal health that most of you will benefit from taking it daily. ZMST is ideally and clinically dosed with its key ingredients thus ensuring effectiveness. This supplement can be a long-term since the dosage is optimized to reduce or eliminate any gut problems associated with some magnesium supplements.
Quick Answers to Common Questions
How is ZMST different from ZMA, do I need both?
ZMST contains zinc and magnesium as does ZMA but also contains the essential cofactor selenium. The enzymes that use zinc and magnesium and the functional actions enhanced by their supplementation need selenium. If there is a selenium deficiency they cannot function properly and ZMA cannot work as planned. Selenium deficiency is very common and is a cause for a lot of metabolic defects in today’s society.
Taurine regulates calcium and magnesium activity and movement of magnesium, taurine deficiency will also prevent magnesium from moving effectively into cells. If taurine deficient ZMA cannot work as planned.
ZMST uses Magnesium citrate instead of magnesium aspartate. The magnesium aspartate molecule is approximately 85% L-aspartate and the aspartate has functions in the body for vasodilation and hormonal support but is rarely deficient and the excess does not force change but will contribute to the stored aspartate pool. Magnesium citrate is about 80% citrate and the citrate has a lot of biological functions such as alkalizing, energy production pathways, crystal removal and aids absorption.
You don’t need to take both as ZMA will supply only zinc and magnesium but not the necessary cofactors and the only difference then is a small amount of L-aspartate from the MA part of ZMA that is not in a large enough dose to induce change and only enough to top up and prevent deficiency but aspartate is rarely deficient so effects are negligible.
- 2.5mg Zinc gluconate - Zinc is a naturally occurring mineral which is important for growth and for the development and health of body tissues. On the other hand, Zinc Gluconate is used to treat and prevent zinc deficiency.
- 100mg Magnesium Citrate - Magnesium is a type of magnesium that is better absorbed than other organic magnesium supplements tested. It is known to treat magnesium deficiency. Citrate in magnesium has been also been found to buffer acid and be a potent urinary alkalizer aiding the excretion of excessive oxalates in the body.
- 6.25mg Organic selenium from yeast Saccharomyces cervisiae - Selenium is a vital mineral for the human body as it increases immunity, takes part in an antioxidant activity that defends against free radical damage and inflammation, and plays a key role in maintaining a healthy metabolism. Also, Selenium is also essential for magnesium and zinc to function properly.
- 25mg Taurine - it is one of the most abundant free amino acids in mammals. It helps boost fat loss, improve insulin sensitivity, increase testosterone levels, ramp up endurance, and improve cardiovascular health.
