What You Should Know
For a combination of zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6 and trace minerals, ZMK sure makes a lot of huge claims. According to the product description, this supplement will increase testosterone, increase growth hormone and improve sleep. Muscle recovery will take less time and thus muscles will grow faster and leaner. Sure, the ingredients in ZMK work to support these functions in the body, but supplying more of them does not mean the body will produce more or work more effectively. Giving the body more trace minerals than it needs simply means the body will excrete them right back out.

We are bombarded with supplements each and every day. Choosing the right supplements for optimum health and muscle production can be hard, but there are easy ways to sort out some of the most ineffective ones. ZMK makes claims it cannot back up. There are no clinical studies referenced in the product description, so that is the first indication that the claims are not supported by scientific fact. The next is the fact that the manufacturers tell the user not to take calcium. The magnesium in the supplement will aid the calcium with absorption so it will not be able to work for any other purpose. Calcium is an important part of daily supplementation, especially for women.
ZMK is similar to ZMA, but the ingredient list is slightly different. ZMA is one of the least effective supplements on the market and it is not well reviewed in the bodybuilding community. ZMK also makes a slight mistake by suggesting MVP 365 as the perfect multivitamin because it contains calcium.
- Ingredients in ZMK are available online.
- Dieters can order the supplement online.
- Supplies healthy trace minerals.
- Not supported with clinical research.
- The user should not take calcium supplements when taking ZMK.
- Will not increase testosterone or IGF-1.
- Not likely to improve sleep.
- Will not boost metabolism or weight loss.
There are more than enough testosterone boosters on the market. ZMK is just another supplement that makes extraordinary claims without clinical backing offered by the manufacturer. Dieters and bodybuilders not only need clinical results, but positive testimonials, before pictures, after pictures and positive reviews of a product before they are willing to spend money on a product like ZMK. It’s funny that the manufacturer suggests taking MVP 365 with ZMK, but that multivitamin contains calcium, which interferes with the function of magnesium in ZMK.
