TREC ZMA Original is a patented ZMA® formula consistent with the indications developed by the SNAC System company. The supplement contains a combination of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6. Their forms and proportions are exactly the same as in the original, which turned out to be effective in clinical trials.
The supplement is recommended for active people, involved in sports, burdened with large number of trainings and lacking of regeneration. It is the only non-steroidal supplement which has anabolic effects. It helps to maintain the optimally high testosterone level, promotes muscle growth and stimulates the increase in strength. Moreover, it facilitates falling asleep and increases the effectiveness of regeneration at night.
ZMA® is based on three bioactive substances:
Magnesium (Mg) ‒ is one of the most deficit elements. It determines the proper conduction of many processes in the body system. It participates in the transformation of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, is involved in the production of energy, controls the release of certain hormones of the adrenal cortex as well as affects the functions of the nervous and cardiovascular systems.
Physically active people must pay special attention to the appropriate supply of magnesium. This element is responsible for durability of bones and neuromuscular excitability. Its deficiency hinders the muscle system and results in painful muscle spasms. Several scientific studies demonstrated a link between the level of magnesium and the biological activity of testosterone.
Magnesium has proven anti-stress properties. It reduces the negative effects of stress (including the physical one) as well as promotes a feeling of relaxation and falling asleep. Researchers suggest a possible correlation between the level of magnesium and the concentration of hormones regulating sleep (renin and melatonin).
Zinc (Zn) is another element that regulates the functioning of the most important systems in the body. It is used by enzymes to catalyze important biochemical reactions; it is present in a strong antioxidant, superoxide dismutase (SOD), affects insulin secretion and participates in protein synthesis. Scientific studies suggest that zinc may be involved in the optimisation of sleep. People suffering from zinc deficiency usually observe a shallow sleep and often wake up at night.
Moreover, zinc modulates the level of testosterone. Scientists have proven that a diet poor in this element very quickly (after about three weeks) leads to a significant reduction in testosterone levels. It weakens also male fertility; sperm is less motile, improperly structured and inactive.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is one of the most important vitamins that are part of a large group of B-vitamins. It is essential for the proper metabolism of nutrients, is involved in the production of important hormones and affects the nervous system functions.
Vitamin B6 can be a remedy to sleeping problems. By inhibiting the catabolism of tryptophan in the liver, it improves its absorption in the brain. It is very important, because tryptophan acts as the precursor for regulating circadian rhythm of melatonin. The process of tryptophan transformation into melatonin also requires the presence of pyridoxine.
Sleep as a key for improved training capacity
All compounds contained in the preparation are, to a lesser or greater extent, responsible for good sleep. A deficiency of any of them may result in problems with falling asleep, impaired sleep continuity and its poor quality. This deteriorates the quality of regeneration at night, which leads to instability of hormonal balance and excessive burden of the nervous system.
Studies have shown that people who do not get enough sleep have higher levels of cortisol, it is hard for them to concentrate and they are more vulnerable to injuries. Sleep deficiency negatively affects physical condition. Central nervous system, which is responsible for muscle contractions, without a proper amount of sleep is not working properly. The reaction time to stimuli becomes longer, there are problems with coordination and pain threshold becomes lower. Scientists think that even small sleep deficiency significantly reduces tolerance to physical effort, which reduces the quality of trainings.
Complementing the deficiencies of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 can also reduce sleeping problems, as these substances reduce latency and waking up at night as well as improve sleep quality. Moreover, magnesium shows soothing and anti-stress properties, which promotes relaxation in the evening and facilitates falling asleep.
High testosterone level
ZMA® positively affects hormonal balance and maintains the high testosterone level in the body system. Studies have demonstrated that excessive physical effort, especially combined with lack of proper regeneration, significantly reduces testosterone level in men. It turns out that supplementation with zinc can prevent these decreases. One of studies on magnesium properties gave similar results. Scientists observed that, in physically active people, complementing magnesium deficiency with magnesium oxide not only prevented testosterone decrease, but even increased its level.
Muscle mass building
Testosterone is one of the most important anabolic hormones, which is why its optimally high level is core for the effective increase in muscle mass, strength and durability. The elements present in the supplement prevent the decline in testosterone level and promote the release of other hormones, such as human growth hormone (HGH) or insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1). This action of the supplement promotes the development of muscles and facilitates the reduction of body fat.
To sum it all up, TREC ZMA Original is a supplement perfect for athletes, who want to effectively and safely increase anabolic potential of their organisms as well as to improve post-workout regeneration. The product is characterised by excellent quality. It was designed in accordance with the original formula. It provides the optimal dose of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 in their most beneficial and highly absorbable forms.
The product is based on natural compounds safe for the body system. It positively affects sleep, therefore the most appropriate time for its adoption is evening. In accordance with the recommendation of the manufacturer, you should take one, up to a maximum of two tablets a day. During supplementation with the product, you should not use other multivitamin preparations containing magnesium, zinc or vitamin B6.
Keep in mind that calcium significantly reduces absorption of zinc contained in the supplement, therefore, you should not use ZMA together with preparations containing calcium nor eat meals that are a source of calcium.

ZMA - patented formula of vitamins and minerals with high bioavailability - containing aspartate, magnesium aspartate and zinc monomethionine and vitamin B6. Zinc is a trace element which influences the proper course of testosterone synthesis. Zinc deficiency in the body during intense exercise can inhibit the synthesis of male hormones. Magnesium provides proper working of enzymes, participates in energy production, improves the heart and circulatory system, and has a calming effect on the nervous system. Proprietor of the patent provides that the adoption of supplements containing formulation increases testosterone level and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I). Also is noted the improved sleep quality and thus improving the mental and physical well-being,already with the first doses of ZMA.
ZMA is available for purchase in the form of mono-preparation supplement or multicomponent supplements as a factor increasing the level of the male sex hormone - testosterone.
Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day
Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.
Zinc deficiency leads to decreased immunity, and growth retardation. Zinc deficiency can occur in case of excessive consumption of simple sugars. In the case of hormonal therapy of women with irregular menstruation, the therapy should be associated with increased consumption of zinc. It can be found in food like: beans, eggs, carrots, beef and pork meat, milk, nuts, citrus fruits, seafood, rice, cottage cheese, lettuce.
Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.
Exogenous methionine is an amino acid containing sulphur in its composition. It provides multi metabolism, with the indispensable help of vitamin B6. Participates in the synthesis of phospholipids (e.g. Lecithin), carnitine responsible for transport in the body of long-chain fatty acids, burned in the mitochondria cells (organelles in cells with a separate kernel), along with cystine forms cysteine. It is in the body antioxidant function. Natural source of acquisition of methionine are high-protein foods of animal origin (eggs, meat, fish), vegetable (sesame seeds, grain products). Available in all protein and carbohydrate protein and amino acid supplements such EAA and contain so-called all-day amino acids, supporting the liver preparations and cosmetics supporting the growth and condition of hair, skin and nails.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
Chlorine (chemical element from the group of halogens) - in the natural form of gas it is poisonous and water-soluble (until recently used as a disinfectant in the water supply system, now replaced by fluorination). It is chemically active element. It is used in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium (KCl). It participates in the process of digestion and maintains acid-base balance in the body, removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver (antitoxin). Natural source of chlorine for the body is salt and bladderwrack.
Chlorine deficiency can occur due to excessive sweating, vomiting, causing digestive tract problems. It also causes loss of hair and teeth.
Excess chlorine, for example. Drink excessive amounts of chlorinated water, destroys bacterial flora and vitamin E.
Dosage: Daily dose should not exceed 15 grams.
