Description

Dosage

3 capsules per day are recommended for an intake of 1200mg of Pido-Magnesium® and 15mg of Pido-Zinc®.

Why choose Nutrimuscle's ZMP?

Nutrimuscle ZMP is an alternative version of ZMB. What's the difference? ZMP does not contain vitamin B6, as this can cause some people (5% of people) to have a rather restless sleep.

What is ZMP?

Nutrimuscle ZMP is a completely natural supplement designed to improve strength and endurance performance.
Nutrimuscle ZMP contains two ingredients with patented forms and superior efficacy:

  • Pido-Magnesium®
  • Pido-Zinc®

What are the benefits of ZMP for you?

Improved sleep quality

Pido-Magnesium® helps improve the quality of your sleep thanks to its relaxing qualities. A good sleep allows the athlete to benefit from better regeneration of the nervous system.

Decrease stress and improve muscle relaxation

Pido-Magnesium® reduces stress levels by 30% and helps muscle relaxation.

Improvement of vascular relaxation

Pido-Magnesium® has positive effects on vascular relaxation, which improves blood flow.

Nutrimuscle ZMP

For athletes wishing to improve their performance, quality sleep is essential. Indeed, it is during the night, in a state of deep relaxation, that muscle and nervous relaxation takes place.
This allows both to better recover after the session but also to be in better shape the next day to carry out a new workout.
ZMP helps by lowering the level of stress and promoting relaxation to obtain a more regenerative sleep for the nerves and muscles.

Composition

Magnesium8 g34,67 mg 104 mg
Zinc 0,2 g1 mg 3 mg

1g ( gram ) = 1000 mg (milligram) Three ZMB Nutrimuscle capsules contain:

  • 1200 mg of magnesium pidolate (including 104 mg of magnesium)
  • 15 mg of zinc pidolate (including 3 mg of zinc). 

Usage tips

Who is ZMP for?

ZMP is a supplement that is for:

  • athletes, for muscular and nervous system recovery after effort;
  • sedentary people who need mineral supplementation and improved sleep quality.

When to take ZMP?

The average dosage is 3 capsules to be taken simultaneously in the evening with dinner or before going to bed.

How to take ZMP?

The doses of Nutrimuscle ZMP are obviously to be modulated according to your specific mineral needs. In order to cover 100% of daily needs in:

  • Magnesium (i.e. 375mg), the equivalent of 4.33g of Pido-Magnesium® is required (1g of Pido-Magnesium® provides approximately 87mg of Magnesium and 913mg of pidolic acid)
  • Zinc (i.e. 10mg), the equivalent of 49.1mg of Pido-Zinc® is required. (1mg of Pido-Zinc® providing about 0.2mg of Zinc and 0.8mg of pidolic acid).

According to studies, the French receive on average only 88% of the recommended minimum (1). Supplements with Nutrimuscle ZMP can help fill this gap.

Interactions with other Nutrimuscle products

Synergies between supplements:

Nutrimuscle ZMP improves the effectiveness of Organic Yerba Mate, Natural Bio Burner, Organic Green Tea and Lactium because these supplements induce a relaxing effect.

Antagonisms between supplements:

ZMP should not be taken at the same time as Potassium Bicarbonate to avoid bloating and with Organic Guarana Guayapi so as not to hinder its stimulating action.

Guaranteed purity of raw materials

It is rare to know the names of the suppliers of the raw materials for the supplements one consumes. However, this is essential to ensure product traceability.
At Nutrimuscle, we use only the highest quality minerals guaranteed by the leading international players:
the French group Solabia, with HACCP and ISO9001 certification, produces the pidolates in Nutrimuscle ZMP.

Benefits of the ZMP in more detail

Improved sleep and regeneration nerves

After intense training, you can stay tense which makes it difficult to relax essential for recovery. This can cause nervous fatigue and make it difficult to exert yourself the next day.

Pido-Magnesium® has relaxing properties that will promote nerve regeneration by helping to sleep better.

Scientific studies have tested different forms of magnesium or a placebo in rats. The latter received either Pido-Magnesium®, magnesium aspartate, magnesium lactate or a placebo, 1 hour before falling asleep (3). Once they were asleep, the researchers abruptly woke the rats up.

With the placebo or magnesium aspartate, none of the rats were able to fall back to sleep immediately after waking up because they remained restless:

  • 14% were able to fall back to sleep immediately thanks to magnesium lactate.
  • 71% were able to fall back to sleep immediately thanks to Pido-Magnesium®.

Pido-Magnesium® is the most effective form of magnesium for nervous relaxation after stress and to promote sleep.

In some users, zinc-magnesium supplementation will make it easier to fall asleep. But the most important benefit of ZMP is to improve the quality of sleep.

=> The regeneration of the nervous system will be more efficient and you will quickly be stronger under the bar.

Helps in muscle relaxation
In a second experiment, other rats received these same forms of magnesium, 1 hour before an amphetamine injection. The purpose of the latter is to induce extreme nervous excitement in animals (3).

Magnesium aspartate and magnesium lactate increase stress levels by 10%.

On the contrary, thanks to muscle relaxation, Pido-Magnesium® lowers stress levels by 30%. Scientific in-vitro studies (in test tubes) carried out on the nerve-muscle pair show that Pido-Magnesium® induces relaxation which is reversible.

This means that unlike drugs that aim to relax the muscles, in the morning you will wake up feeling fit and strong and not weak, because the relaxing action will have ceased to work. So you can train or start your day in great shape.

Impact on the brain

In the brain, pidolic acid acts as an antagonist of glutamate (an amino acid that acts as a stimulant of the central nervous system). If glutamate is a good thing to train, because it gives strength, in the evening, it can on the other hand prevent you from sleeping.

Pidolic acid will hinder the action of glutamate which explains the relaxing effect of this protein. Pidolic acid is all the more effective when it is coupled with another nerve relaxant: magnesium (3).

But the benefits of pidolic acid don't end there.

Scientific research has shown that regular use of pidolic acid improves memory, both in animals and in humans (4 - 5).

Vascular relaxation
Medical studies have also shown that Pido-Magnesium® promotes vascular relaxation which improves blood exchange (6 - 13).

Thus, the arrival of anabolic nutrients, in one direction, and the evacuation, in the other direction, of metabolic waste induced by training, accelerates. In addition, cardiac work is facilitated which contributes to general rest and better sleep.

Long-term impacts of Pidolate
Pidolate (also called L-pyrrolidone carboxylic acid by scientists) is a molecule found naturally in our bodies, especially in the skin, liver, and brain (7). Within the latter, pidolate promotes the secretion of GABA, a natural molecule that facilitates relaxation.

Due to its presence in multiple tissues, the impact of pidolate has been evaluated in a wide variety of pathologies. Thus, many studies have examined the effects of taking more or less long pidolate on health.

We have a large number of studies that demonstrate the long-term safety of pidolate when taken orally, in adults, seniors, pregnant women, children and adolescents (8 to 13) (14 to 19). (20 to 26)

ZMP and Magnesium Citrate, what's the difference?

If you are already taking ZMP, are you also better off taking Magnesium Citrate or will it duplicate it?

If you have an excellent absorption capacity for magnesium, adding magnesium citrate is not necessarily useful.

On the other hand, if your assimilation capacities are not optimal, it is wise to add magnesium citrate to increase your magnesium intake (see below for clues that will help you assess your absorption capacities). More than a magnesium intake, ZMP is above all a recovery supplement thanks to its content in pidolate, a relaxing amino acid.

ZMP is best used in the evening, but not before a workout. Magnesium citrate can be taken throughout the day in order to split the intake to optimize its absorption (see below)
