ZM8 - Hardcore
HARDCORE ZM8 capsules are taken by strength and power athletes, Rugby Players, Bodybuilders and endurance athletes as it is one of the few supplements that effects your natural testosterone production leading to increased athletic strength and power. Fuel your muscle growth with this natural anabolic strength booster. Research shows that this blend of nutrients raises low testosterone levels, increases strength, and accelerates gains in muscle size. One university study showed a 30% increase in testosterone levels following such supplementation. ZM8 HARDCORE Muscle Builder Capsules are lab tested for the highest potency and purity. ZM8 contains scientifically-proven ratios of zinc, magnesium and vitamin b6 and has been clinically shown to support enhanced hormone production, promote lean mass, maximize restful sleep and does not contain any hormones or banned substances.
This product is very popular and is taken by hard training athletes, bodybuilders, cyclists, rugby players etc with an array of studies that suggest a number of positive benefits.
Deficiencies in Zinc and Magnesium are common in athletes. This results in reduced testosterone levels, lack of performance, reduced recovery, cramps and tiredness. ZM8 can be used by all athletes and bodybuilders wanting to gain lean muscle size and strength. ZM8 is also used widely by endurance athletes, such as runners, cyclists and tri-athletes, as it helps to prevent the drop in testosterone levels linked with high volumes of training.
Studies on Elite Athletes, Footballers, Runners, Navy Seals, Volleyball and Basketball Players show the benefits of increasing your zinc and magnesium supplementation! Studies show that taking ZMA increases muscle strength by around 11%, resulting in rapid gains in muscle size. ZMA has also been to shown to improve sleep patterns when taken 30 minutes before bed, resulting in increased muscle growth. In another study the leg muscle strength of the magnesium supplemented group significantly increased by 26%, compared to only 10% for the placebo group.
Lorrie Brilla, PhD, a sports performance researcher at Western Washington University, recently reported that ZMA significantly increased free testosterone levels and muscle strength in NCAA football players. These ZMA study results were presented by Dr. Brilla on June 2, 1999, at the 46th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine in Seattle, WA, and were published in the official ACSM journal, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, Vol. 31, No. 5, May 1999
Brilla reported that "a group of competitive NCAA football players who took ZMA nightly during an eight-week spring training program had 2.5 times greater muscle strength gains than a placebo group. (250% better results!) Pre and post leg strength measurements were made using a Biodex isokinetic dynamometer." The strength of the ZMA group increased by 11.6% compared to only a 4.6% increase in the placebo group.
Brilla further explained, "The muscle strength increases may have been mediated by the anabolic hormone increases in the ZMA group. The ZMA group had 30% increases in free and total testosterone levels compared to 10 percent decreases in the placebo group... The ZMA group also had a slight increase in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels compared to a 20 percent decrease in the placebo group. This study shows that anabolic hormone and muscle strength increases can be induced in already strength-trained athletes by using a zinc-magnesium preparation."
Another benefit is better sleep. ZMA should be taken 30 - 60 minutes before bed. Most people notice they can fall asleep deeper and then sleep more deeply. Muscle growth occurs while you are resting and sleeping with deeper sleep patterns resulting in enhanced muscle growth. It is no wonder that ZM8 is so amazingly popular.

ZM8 is also superb for women! According to a 2010 study published by the "European Journal of Clinical Nutrition," zinc supplementation may improve mood in women, and may even be an effective treatment for depression in women. In the study, women who supplemented with 7 mg of zinc daily for 10 weeks showed a significant reduction in anger and depression and scored higher on a Profile of Mood State exam as compared to women who took a placebo and women who took a multivitamin containing zinc. Taking zinc supplements by themselves may increase serum levels of zinc in your bloodstream because it is more readily absorbed than in a multivitamin, where zinc has to compete for absorption with other vitamins and minerals. For Elderly Women - Elderly and post-menopausal women may require more zinc than elderly men. Plasma zinc levels decrease as you get older, even if your zinc intake remains the same. As you age, the amount of zinc your body is able to absorb decreases, which may require you to ingest more zinc to prevent a deficiency. Older women may be more susceptible to a zinc deficiency than older men. This may be due to the higher dietary intake of calcium in older women for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. Calcium competes with zinc for absorption, and increasing calcium intake in elderly women may reduce zinc absorption. Menstruation - Zinc supplementation may improve some of the negative effects associated with menstruation in women, including premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, because of the mineral's ability to regulate the secretion of progesterone, which may increase the risk of developing PMS According to a 2007 study published in the "Journal of Medical Hypotheses," zinc supplementation in women may prevent dysmenorrhea, or menstrual cramps.
