Bulk Nutrients ZMA: Nutrients Powder
ZMA is a natural mineral supplement containing Magnesium L Aspartate, Zinc Picolinate and Vitamin B6.
The use and effectiveness of supplementing with ZMA has been studied widely.
ZMA is backed by research
A study that looked at the effect of ZMA supplementation in American footballers by Lorrie Brilla, Ph.D found that ZMA had various positive effects on the atheletes.
A group of 12 competitive NCAA football players who took ZMA nightly during an eight-week training program had their muscle strength and functional power measured (pre and post training) and the athletes that took ZMA nightly for the 8 week period had 2.5 times greater strength gains and double the functional power gains compared to the placebo group.

ZMA Powder Reviews
I have found that this product has helped me sleep as I struggle with sleep apnea. It’s a great product I definitely recommended it. It doesn’t have any bad flavor so it’s great to mix with just water.
This ZMA mix is worth it if you're after a zinc picolinate product to help with sleep and recovery. For me the MagLA and B6 are just a bonus. I've been using this for a month now and I feel like I get a deeper sleep especially after a heavy lifting day. You definitely need an accurate microscale for dosing though.
I liked using this, easy mix and delivered quickly.
You know you're taking ZMAs when you get crazy dreams of absurd vividity. Great product, improved my good sleep even more.
Good ZMA ratio, however definitely needed to be put into capsules or provided with a better measuring utensil
I've been taking this for 2 weeks and I no longer get crippling cramps and I'm falling asleep a lot quicker than I used to. Absolutely loving this product and highly recommend!
I have discoid lupus which adversely affects the skin on your face and head. It causes red marks that end in hair loss and a scare tissue type of appearance, not great! Two weeks of using ZMA powder and the red marks have reduced substantially. Very happy with the results. It's not a cure, but it's better than applying prescription creams which have not been as effective.
I take this with GABA and Casein before bed as per my coach's recommendations. I have been taking this product every night for 3 months straight and the quality of my sleep has never been better. I have dreamed almost every night since.
I also took note of and liked the fact that the forms of Zinc and Magnesium used in this product are the highly absorb-able forms.
Buy it for the effects on your sleep. Does not appear to have any perceivable effects on strength gains in someone who already has relatively high level strength.
