Q: Why is there no calcium in ZMK™? And why does it say not to take it with calcium?
A: As with any nighttime zinc and magnesium product calcium is counter productive to its effects. If calcium were included the body would use the vital magnesium found in ZMK™ for the absorption of the calcium making the product ineffective for its intended purposes. Most athletes are chronically deficient in magnesium in the first place. Serious athletes consume ample calcium containing foods such as green leafy veggies, salmon, tofu, peas, broccoli, beans, nuts, fortified bread, fortified cereals, fortified orange juice and dairy products which include milk, cheese, yogurt and the abundant amount of whey and casein protein consumed. As you can see most serious athletes consume enough calcium. Enough calcium that when combined with the stress of life and vigorous exercise it can be very magnesium depleting.
Q: Why should I use ZMK™ over ZMA?
A: Let’s count the reasons. Here is what ZMK™ contains and provides over your typical ZMA product.
• Superior bioavailablity
• Krebs cycle chelated Zinc & Magnesium
• Full spectrum Krebs chelated mineral support blend
• 3078mgs of Krebs cycle intermediates for ATP production
• Active form P-5-P co-enzymal vitamin B-6
• Naturally occurring 72 trace mineral blend
Q: Why a tablet instead of a capsule? I though tablets take longer to dissolve?
A: We put ZMK™ into a tablet for two reasons. Space- Using a tablet allowed us to keep the serving size to 4 tablets. Versatility- Some people can’t swallow capsules or tablets so we opted for a tablet that can be swallowed or chewed.
The ZMK™ tablets were not pressed super hard like conventional tablets. They are softer and easily broken in half for varied personal dosing. This softer pressing also allows the ZMK™ tablets to be easily dissolved in the stomach and assimilated.
Q: Do women still need all four tablets?
A: Well we all have different nutritional needs but since female athletes are typically as or more deficient in magnesium than their male counterparts all four tablets would be optimal. There is one way to find out. Take four tablets, if you have loose stool then cut the dose back the next night to three tablets.
Q: Who needs ZMK™?
A: Besides everybody? We all want a competitive edge and all athletes will benefit from ZMK’s™ effects because we all need mineral support. Other than “Balls to the wall” workouts and training here is a short list of things to look for which could indicate need for nutritional support.
• Muscles that cramp easily and often
• Muscles that twitch uncontrollably or involuntarily
• Chronically tight muscles that are prone to pulling
• Insomnia or restless sleep
• Diminished or suboptimal muscle recovery
• Low libido
• Brain fog
• High levels of stress or anxiety
• Regular consumption of Alcohol
• Use of Antibiotics
• Use of Diuretics
Q: Does ZMK™ need to be cycled?
A: No. ZMK™ can be used daily for optimal mineral support.
Q: Is there a specific protocol for using ZMK™?
A: Yes! We recommend using MVP-365™ for your daytime vitamin & antioxidant needs and ZMK™ for your nighttime mineral needs. Most sport nutritionists recommend taking your vitamins during the day and minerals at night. MVP-365™ and ZMK™ allow you to do exactly that.
