Without quality sleep, it’s impossible for our bodies to recover from strenuous activities such as lifting weights, athletics and other physically exhausting endeavors. Vigorous physical training has been known to cause sleep disruptions and the higher the physical intensity and stress, the greater the problems in obtaining deep sleep.
We also must endure toxins in the environment and the air. Processed foods, fast foods and junk food also increase toxicity in the body. These toxins prohibit full REM sleep – the type that is deep, recycles your cells and renews your body from the inside out.
You might be saying to yourself, “I get 7-8 hours of sleep every night.” That may be true, but what type of sleep are you getting? Is it truly restorative? If you're waking up feeling less than 100% renewed, then efficient and replenishing sleep is most likely eluding you and you were not even aware of it.
Importance of Sleep
If you wake up in the morning and feel tired, grouchy or miserable, it's likely you didn't get the necessary REM sleep. Your brain and body need to fully quiet down in order for your cells to regenerate themselves. Daily life takes a toll on our stress levels and this can create a barrier to cellular regeneration.
When we are sleeping, we are reprieved from the rat race. We don't have to think, listen, talk, walk, eat or move. We don't watch television, we don't listen to music, and we don't have sex. We are simply at peace, recovering from the day behind us. But if our brains do not fully shut down along with our bodies, how can they both recover?
Help for Restful Sleep
Instead of looking for something to boost your performance synthetically, why not work with the innate restorative sleep processes of your body and utilize natural supplements? bMinerals ZMA is designed for your body and mind, utilizing the knowledge of science, tested in laboratories and pending a patent. It contains zinc, magnesium aspartate, Vitamin B6 and eight essential amino acids.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein from which your muscles and body tissues are formed. If your amino acid profile is somewhat diminished, you will feel it during your workouts and athletic competitions. You will have reduced endurance and your sleep cycles may become irregular.
bMinerals ZMA is able to zap both of these problems, often within a week of starting on the supplement.
The Power of Zinc
bMinerals ZMA is an organic supplement which helps your body recover after intense strenuous activities like athletic training. It does this while you sleep – or rather, it helps you sleep more deeply and soundly to boost your body’s natural ability to rebuild and repair muscles. During exercise, our bodies produce free radicals through a process called oxidative stress. Zinc is better than Vitamin C, E, and other anti-oxidants in getting rid of free radicals caused by oxidative stress.
Many athletes are interested in the Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) as it supports muscular growth. Intense training and exercise lowers IGF-1 and, over time, your anabolic state will become unstable. bMinerals ZMA will not only stabilize your muscles, but will help them recover faster.
There was a study completed on growth-impaired children, and their IGF-1 levels increased after using zinc supplementation, which is one of the key factors in bMinerals ZMA. Both muscle growth and anti-oxidant power is boosted by using Zinc supplementation in combination with the other vital nutrients in bMinerals ZMA.
Adrenal Glands and Mineral Deficiencies
Body builder Michael Ashley raves about the supplement, saying that bMinerals ZMA is the undisclosed solution to a boost in anabolic hormone production and a deeper sleep that helps the body recover efficiently and successfully.
Your adrenal glands produce cortisol, testosterone, adrenaline, DHEA and aldosterone. Cortisol is released from the adrenal glands when your body is taxed out, DHEA and testosterone both decrease with age and adrenaline is released during stressful events and exercise. Whether you are weight training or athletic training, you are putting your body through intense stress, causing cortisol levels to climb.
When cortisol levels increase, your mood can be affected. bMinerals ZMA aids your adrenal glands in a natural recovery, resulting in more positive moods with ZMA supplementation. Strength is regained, performance is maximized and the anabolic recovery process is intensified – which you will feel throughout your body. Your overall well-being is genuinely improved.
Athletes are constantly pumping out adrenaline when going to the gym to increase their stamina, during games and when running or doing other aerobic and anaerobic activities. Exercise is healthy, but if you don’t put as much energy into recovery, then you can put strain on your adrenal glands. If you do not replenish your adrenals along with the rest of your body, your performances will likely be sub-par.
Zinc, magnesium, amino acids and Vitamin B6 are the key ingredients of bMinerals ZMA which assist the healing of the adrenals. The adrenal glands are the smallest glands in the body, but they pack a big punch – so it's worthwhile to help these energy efficient, hormone producing glands heal themselves.
bMinerals ZMA will help your body to renew itself, feel younger and stronger, and aid the recovery of your adrenal glands by giving you better sleep quality, an energy boost, and increasing your overall confident and positive feelings of well-being. Let the professionals at the biostation introduce you to all the anabolic and sleep benefits of bMinerals ZMA.
