ZMA is a supplement used to increase testosterone levels and physical endurance and strength in athletes. ZMA is an anabolic testosterone booster that is marketed as a nonsteroidal, natural dietary supplement. It contains zinc aspartate, magnesium aspartate and vitamin B-6, as well as other ingredients. According to fitness marketing sites for this product, the daily dose of 30 mg of zinc and 450 mg of magnesium found in ZMA can raise testosterone levels by up to 30 percent. However, these claims are not medically proven, and ZMA may cause side effects in some individuals. Consult a doctor or nutritionist before using ZMA to boost testosterone levels.

Step 1

Consult your doctor or nutritionist about taking ZMA Anabolic Testosterone Booster. Inform your doctor of any medications and supplements you are taking concurrently. ZMA may adversely interact with some herbal and prescription drugs.

Step 2

Purchase ZMA Anabolic Testosterone Booster from a reputable site. Carefully read the ingredients to ensure that you are not allergic to anything it contains. Follow the instructions provided on the bottle label carefully.

Step 3

Ingest the recommended dosage of ZMA. The typical dose is one to two times per day. The product developers recommend taking one dose of ZMA before going to bed to enhance muscle development during sleep. Take the first dose of ZMA in the morning to increase anabolic body hormones for increased muscle mass development during the day. Consume ZMA for the recommended duration only.
