L.R. BRILLA AND VICTOR CONTE. Effects of a Novel Zinc-Magnesium Formulation on Hormones and Strength. JEPonline, 3(4): 26-36, 2000. Muscle attributes and selected blood hormones of football players were assessed in response to a nightly supplementation regimen during spring football, over an 8-week period, with pre-post measures. A double-blind randomized study was conducted with ZMA (30 mg zinc monomethionine aspartate, 450 mg magnesium aspartate, and 10.5 mg of vitamin B-6) and placebo (P), n…

Effects of Zinc Magnesium Aspartate (ZMA) Supplementation on Training Adaptations and Markers of Anabolism and Catabolism
TLDR
Examination of whether supplementing the diet with a commercial supplement containing zinc magnesium aspartate during training affects zinc and magnesium status, anabolic and catabolic hormone profiles, and/or training adaptations indicates that ZMA supplementation does not appear to enhance training adaptations in resistance trained populations.
Serum Testosterone and Urinary Steroid Profiles after Administration of a Zinc Supplement
  • 2007
According to a supplementation trial by Brilla and Conte [1], the use of ZMA by semiprofessional athletes resulted in an increase of plasma testosterone (T) levels of ca. 30 % and significantly
The Effects of a Multi-Ingredient Performance Supplement on Hormonal Profiles and Body Composition in Male College Athletes
TLDR
Findings suggest the MIPS can prevent decrements in LBM and anabolic hormone profiles during intense training periods, and suggest this supplement should be used in conjunction with resistance training and specialized sports training.
Effect of a Period of Magnesium Supplementation on Muscle Strength and Resistance of Bodybuilders
TLDR
Magnesium supplementation can affect the strength of upper body’s muscles of men with a significant effect on the hands and chest muscles of the bodybuilders ‘athlete.
A–Z of nutritional supplements: dietary supplements, sports nutrition foods and ergogenic aids for health and performance: Part 46
The concluding alphabetical part of our series, part 46, deals with just two topics for the letter ‘Z’. One of these, zinc monomethionine aspartate (ZMA), is a derivative of the other well-known
Effect of Schisandra chinensis Baillon extracts and regular low-intensity exercise on muscle strength and mass in older adults: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
SCe supplementation may enhance skeletal muscle strength but not mass in older adults with relatively low muscle mass who do low-intensity exercise in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
Use of medicinal doses of zinc as a safe and efficient coadjutant in the treatment of male hypogonadism
TLDR
The current body of evidence does not suggest broad recommendations regarding the use of zinc for all types of hypogonadism, and a common and safe recommendation is 220 mg of zinc sulfate twice a day, over one to four months.
The Interplay between Magnesium and Testosterone in Modulating Physical Function in Men
TLDR
There is evidence that magnesium exerts a positive influence on anabolic hormonal status, including Testosterone, in men, and the potential underlying mechanisms of this relationship in male subjects are summarized.
Effect of Loquat Leaf Extract on Muscle Strength, Muscle Mass, and Muscle Function in Healthy Adults: A Randomized, Double-Blinded, and Placebo-Controlled Trial
TLDR
No differences in muscle strength, muscle mass, muscle function, and physical performance were observed between the two groups; however, the right-handgrip strength of female subjects in the LLE group was found to be significantly better than that of Subjects in the control group (P = 0.047).

Zinc supplementation increases growth and circulating insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) in growth-retarded Vietnamese children.
TLDR
The study suggests that zinc deficiency may limit growth in nutritionally deprived children and suggests that the growth-stimulating effect of zinc might be mediated through changes in circulating IGF-I.
The effect of a marathon run on plasma and urine mineral and metal concentrations.
TLDR
Serum and urinary magnesium concentrations decrease during endurance running, consistent with the possibility of magnesium deficiency, and may be related to increased demand in skeletal muscle, possibly related to tissue injury.
Effect of Training on Zinc Metabolism: Changes in Serum and Sweat Zinc Concentrations in Sportsmen
TLDR
The results suggest that ZnUf control, zinc supplementation and/or stress control appear to be indicated in athletes to prevent the diminution of active Zn Uf.
The effects of zinc depletion on peak force and total work of knee and shoulder extensor and flexor muscles.
TLDR
The data suggest that acute Zn depletion alters the total work capacity of skeletal muscle as well as the peak force of the muscle groups tested.
Hormonal responses to consecutive days of heavy-resistance exercise with or without nutritional supplementation.
TLDR
It is indicated that protein-carbohydrate supplementation before and after training can alter the metabolic and hormonal responses to consecutive days of heavy-resistance exercise.
Effects of human growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor I, and diet and exercise on body composition of obese postmenopausal women.
TLDR
It is shown that obese postmenopausal women can lose weight and fat without compromising fat free mass, BMR, or gains in muscle strength, and that GH and IGF-I given together may enhance fat loss over either given alone.
Zinc, iron, and magnesium status in athletes--influence on the regulation of exercise-induced stress and immune function.
TLDR
The data on zinc, iron, and magnesium status in athletes is reviewed and the consequences of deficiencies in these trace elements regarding exercise tolerance and immune function are summarized.
Exercise and mineral status of athletes: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and iron.
TLDR
To maintain optimal status of these minerals, it is recommended that nutrient rich foods be ingested including dairy products and foods high in heme iron.
[Magnesium aspartate as a cardioprotective agent and adjuvant in tocolysis with betamimetics. Animal experiments on the kinetics and calcium antagonist action of orally administered magnesium aspartate with special reference to simultaneous vitamin B administration].
TLDR
Investigation on calcium uptake into the maternal myocardium revealed, that oral magnesium aspartate substitution significantly diminishes myocardial calcium uptake, the latter among others being responsible for cardiac hazards during tocolysis with beta-mimetic substances, while the pharmacologic calcium-antagonist Verapamil failed to do so.
