When you hear the name ‘Optimum Nutrition,’ you immediately think of a company that has its finger on the pulse of what’s best in human nutrition and supplements. So when I heard about Optimum ZMA by Optimum Nutrition, I had high hopes. Let me start off by saying, those hopes were well worth it.
Optimum ZMA has been around for a while now, so there’s plenty of information about it that you can find just about anywhere on the Internet. As far as testosterone boosters go, you’ll find that this one rates pretty high on the list.
Will You ‘Stomach’ this Supplement?
If a supplement is powerfully effective, but doesn’t taste good (or, more accurately, is so rank that you simply cannot deal with it on a daily basis, let alone a few times a day), then would you keep up with it? There are plenty of testosterone boosters on the market that could be classified as toxic as far as taste is concerned, but Optimum ZMA was pretty good by comparison.
The other major consideration for most supplements, for many of the guys I know, is price. If you are going to spend your hard earned money on these supplements, you want to know that they’re going to be effective. But you also want to make sure that they’re not going to leave you flat, broke, and busted before too long.
I was quite surprised at the relatively low price of Optimum ZMA, considering what I’d heard about it. Usually when you have a supplement that is priced low, it’s because there’s something wrong with it and you’re not going to be overly pleased. Optimum ZMA is actually a decent price for a good booster.
Is Optimum ZMA Effective?
Here we come to the meat and potatoes of the review. Is Optimum ZMA effective? For the most part, it is. There are different factors to consider, though. ZMA is most effective at boosting energy levels and helping you to relax at night after a good, solid workout.
Will you build muscle mass with ZMA? This is where the product does have its downside. Yes, you’re going to get more testosterone in your system, but that doesn’t seem to equate to an increase in your muscle mass. That could be that this booster simply takes longer to establish those benefits than the thirty days I tried the product for, or it could be that the amount of testosterone your body produces will be different with ZMA.
However, for the price and the overall results (I did feel more energetic within a week of starting to take this testosterone booster), I would say that Optimum ZMA hits the mark where it needs to be hit.
If you’re after a testosterone booster that works for the most part and you’re budget is limited, this is a good option for you.
