Zinc, Magnesium, Selenium and Taurine (ZMST) are essential nutrients for individuals. Because of our modern lifestyles, these nutrients are often deficient in the Western Diet and have been depleted from our soils and not found in adequate levels in our foods. The deficiency of these nutrients can lead to a host of disorders that include cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, sleep disorders, mental health problems and even musculoskeletal problems like osteoporosis and muscle aches and pains.
ZMST is an essential supplement for optimal health that most individuals will benefit from. It contains the proper ratios of key nutrients and proper therapeutic dosages of magnesium so many people are deficient in. It contains magnesium in the best form (citrate) and in divided dosages for optimal absorption. ATP Science’ ZMST can be taken long term because the dosage is optimised to reduce or eliminate any gut problems associated with some magnesium supplements.
ZMST ATP Science Ingredients per capsule
- Magnesium Citrate (100mg elemental Magnesium)
- Zinc gluconate (2.5mg elemental Zinc)
- Organic Selenium yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (6.25mcg elemental selenium)
- Taurine 25mg
How many: Take one to three capsules,
How often: one to three times per day.
Your rate absorption is proportional to your body magnesium levels.
- If your body levels are low than absorption is enhanced.
- If your body levels are fine or high than absorption slows down.
- If you take more than you need the magnesium drags water into your intestine and creates loose watery stools or diarrhoea.
If you suspect deficiency you can take up to 3 ZMST capsules 3 times daily. As your levels increase your absorption slows down and you get watery loose stools. If or when this happens reduce your dose to 2 and then 1 capsule 3 times daily.
Long term taking 1 to 3 capsules of ZMST daily will maintain healthy magnesium levels.
Magnesium (Mg2+) is the second most abundant intracellular mineral, after potassium, and is the fourth most abundant cation in the human body. This essential mineral is needed for a broad variety of physiological and biochemical functions. Almost every time you break something down to raw materials and building blocks or build something new in your body there is a requirement for magnesium to allow that to happen.
Magnesium is not a sedative as such but it makes sure you are capable of switching off/relaxing. Calcium is forced into cells as an “on switch”; inducing an action like a thought or muscle contraction or twitch or spasm. Magnesium lives mainly inside cells and is pushed out of the cell to block the calcium and provide an “off switch”.
Signs of Magnesium Deficiency
- Poor Heart Health
- Muscle Cramps
- High Blood Pressure
- Type II Diabetes
- Respiratory Issues
- Potassium Deficiency
- Difficulty Swallowing
- Poor Memory
The metal zinc is nowadays well known to be essential for a well-operating human body. However, knowledge about zinc homeostasis, zinc deficiency, and related diseases is comparatively new. As mentioned earlier with magnesium, the zinc and magnesium enzymes are needed almost every time you break something down to raw materials and building blocks or build something new in your body. It is a structural component in proteins and it is involved in numerous cellular functions.
Many chronic diseases have been associated with zinc deficiency, such as: type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and depression. There are also links between zinc deficiency and acute and chronic several infectious diseases such as shigellosis, acute cutaneous leishmaniosis, malaria, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis, measles, and pneumonia.
The Effects of Zinc in The Body
- Essential trace element used by over 300 enzymes in the body
- The adult body only contains 2 to 3 grams of zinc
- Zinc is found in ALL parts of the body
- 90% of body zinc is found in muscle and bones
- High concentrations found in semen and prostate
- Aids healthy hair, skin and nails
- Vital for cell division such as pregnancy and normal growth and development
- Important for fertility, sperm production, prostate health and healthy testosterone levels
- Zinc is essential to balance female hormones and prevent premenstrual problems
- Essential component for the immune system
- Controls inflammation
- Reduces oxidative stress by making antioxidants
- Improves insulin sensitivity
Signs of Zinc Deficiency
- Compromised Immunity
- Persistent Diarrhea
- Loss of Appetite
- Poor Growth in Children
- Thinning Hair
- Skin Problems
- Behavioral Disturbances
- Vision Problems
Magnesium and zinc need selenium to function properly.
Selenium deficiency is often the rate limiting factor for zinc and magnesium function. Meaning if selenium is deficient the zinc and magnesium supplements can’t work properly. Selenium belongs to one of the trace elements essential for human health and life. In the body, selenium is involved in numerous processes
- immune functions
- antioxidant defence
- cardiovascular system,
- Muscle and bone development
Signs of Selenium Deficiency
- Weak Immune System
- Susceptible to Certain Cancers
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Elevated Blood Pressure
- Risk of Coronary Artery Disease
- Unhealthy Thyroid Function
- Loose Skin Hair or Skin Discoloration
- Whitened Fingernail Beds
- Keshan Disease
- Kashin-Beck Disease
Taurine is one of the most abundant free amino acids in mammals. It is considered a basic regulator of cell homeostasis controlling calcium and magnesium channels helping to reduce calcium influx and magnesium release from cells and subsequent excretion. In short Taurine increases intracellular magnesium and helps to hold magnesium in cells .
