Zinc and Magnesium is a combination of two dietary minerals (zinc methionine and magnesium citrate) and vitamin B6. Zinc is in the most readily available form to the body of zinc methionine, the magnesium is in the citrate form.
Using Zinc and Magnesium has a number of benefits to the body and its functionality. Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance and the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, the normal functioning of the nervous system and muscle function, normal protein synthesis and psychological function and a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.
The Zinc component contributes to the normal function of the immune system and macronutrient metabolism, a contribution to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in blood and normal vision and the maintenance of normal skin/hair/nails and normal bones. It also contributes to normal cognitive function and help protect cells from oxidative stress.
Zinc and Magnesium is a suitable addition to any supplement regime. Zinc and Magnesium contribute to a number of physiological functions and is a complimentary supplement for both athletes and non-trainers alike. A number of our customers purchase Zinc and Magnesium along with products in Muscle and Strength and Sports Performance.

Since taking this product I've had a recurring dream in which I'm desperate to go to the toilet. In my dream I find myself in a frantic search for a toilet, with any toilets I come across being in an unusable condition or occupied. When I wake up I find myself bursting for the toilet! I really hope that I never find a usable toilet in my dream...Goes Well With:A plastic coated mattress (just in case)
There was a mistake with the serving size printed on the bottle I received, I have noticed another reviewer mentioned it also thinking they only needed to take one serving per day. It says to take one capsule per day but this is incorrect, I have confirmed with MyProtein support that you need to take three capsules to get the stated 500mg of magnesium (Or it seems to be 450mg advertised now). Just look out for this if you ordered recently, I am sure it will be fixed quickly. They are also covered in white powder, not sure if they are supposed to be but I have noticed they stick to my throat if I swallow them too quickly. If you hold them in your mouth for two seconds first the power comes off and they are easier to get down. Product works well, I've had some crazy dreams!
After reading lots of fantastic reviews on this product I decided to buy and I wasn't disappointed at all. I took 2 first night and slept really well with vivid dreams, decided to take 4 last night and had the deepest sleep I've had for a long time. Absolutely superb product! Goes Well With:A bed
I have used this for almost two weeks, and It is great. I don't wake up in the middle of the night, and a dream a bit more, which is strange.. I also don't feel as sore, specially in my legs. Goes Well With:A good nights sleep!
Ok. This is actually a nice addition to my evening supplements. If you are running, cycling or 'training' everyday then this helps a little bit on your recovery. I dont care what people say about 'recovery days' I have one or two per week and with this supplement, some whey protein and omega3 I recovery excellently. It also helps me sleep a little deeper than normal and I have also not had a cold in 18 months! Normally I get one or two per year.Goes Well With:Rest and Sleep!
ZMA gets thrown around as being the better option to go for, so naturally the zinc and magnesium tablets "ZMA" are probably the option most will go for, as did I for over a year, until I looked in to Zinc and Magnesium compared to 'ZMA'. Noticed it was cheaper, yet the nutritional information contained more Zinc, Magnesium, B6 and also included Copper. ZMA I felt wasn't that effective for me. I'd notice a better night's sleep, but nothing amazing, until I switched to Zinc and Magnesium. Dreams were more vivid than they had been on ZMA, woke up feeling a lot more well rested and refreshed. Feel more recovered after workouts the evening before etc, all around a much better product for a cheaper price. If you've been taking the actual 'ZMA' branded supplement, definitely switch to this instead. You'll notice a difference immediately. Goes Well With:Water Sleep
I have always struggled with getting a good night's sleep. I would walk up numerous of times during the night, and I would be absolutely shattered in the morning time. Every since I've started taking Mag and Zinc combination my sleep is a whole lot better, a much deeper sleep than before. I highly recommend this supplement to anyone struggling with their sleeping. The ingredients are the best form of Mag and Zinc, quality ingredients for a quality product.
"I don’t normally review as I feel it is hard to tell conclusively whether a product works or not, as there are so many factors involved. However, I bought “Zinc & Magnesium” to try and improve my sleep and I can say that if anything my sleep quality has decreased. It gives me crazy dreams, and instead of helping me get a good 8 hours, it seems to make we wake up after only 6 hours, leaving me feeling tired in the afternoons. May work for others, but not for me. No spots to report."
I originally bought these for acne more so than for my sleep combined with vitamin D3 and A and have noticed all three make a difference to my skin along with a balanced diet. Putting that aside... I took 3 an hour before I went to sleep and did immediately notice how vivid my dreams were usually I don't remember my dreams or I wake up throughout the night so they're too short to even be remembered but for once I slept pretty much like a baby. However, when I started taking these, for the first couple of days I got pins and needles and cramps in my toes when I slept which was weird and I did feel Immensly tired taking these. I know the dose said 3 but when I took 3 I'd wake up very fatigued so I stuck to taking one or two. Been using this for more than a month now, sometimes I'll skip a day or two if I took 3 the night before and notice I'll sleep well for those days. Now that my body has adjusted to these pills daily, I don't feel tired anymore and get a good amount of sleep. Already on to buying it again!
Tried this product on reccomendations for magnesium at night. This product gave me very weird dreams, i also woke up feeling tired, a lot more than usual, took me a good 1.5 hours to actually feel as if i was awake.. even after 8 hours sleep! I continued to take this product for 10days, and for those 10 days, i felt extremely tired, fatigued quickly and always wanted to sleep - nothing like my usual state.I hoped after 10 days my body would be some what accepting of this product and i could get that good nights sleep everyone jams on about. I have now stopped taking this product, and feel GREAT.. i actually feel like i've slept at night now and have a lot more energy! I wouldn't recommend this product personally, however, it was worth a try.
Great product, says what it does on the tin
I suffered from anxiety n was a nervous person, couldn't sleep at night and kept tosfsing n turning in bed which left me tired and stressed n irritable. I have taken these tablets 3 a night for 3 weeks and now have a great sleep more energy and get up and go about myself. Never knee it would be easy without attending a gp and them telling you that your depressed n send you off with a pill.
Great results, excellent quality. Great price. Highly recommend. I have been using this product for a few weeks and have noticed a significant change in the amount of sleep I am currently getting. Does definitely what it says on the tin.
Great results, excellent quality. Great price. Highly recommend.
These are the best supplements ever. I suffer from anxiety, restless leg and insomnia. But not anymore. I started taking these last year and now they are on my bedside locker forever!! No more sleeplessness and when I did sleep waking up at 3am and not getting back to sleep. No more waking up with excruciating leg cramps in the middle of the night and also they help recovery from strength training too. I have tried magnesium supplements in other brands but myprotein is the best value and most effective.
I have been using this product for three years now. Great price compared to the branded ZMA version. It does promote a good night sleep however this effect does wear off therefore it best cycled. Zinc/magnesium is great for keeping your immune system up during winter especially after a heavy workout.
Also bought these on reading the reviews, and as be pre-reviewers I have to agree, they truly make you fall deep. I work during the day, often don't finish the gym till 9pm. I have pre-workout drinks, then followed by post workout shake... When I hit the bed my body is knackered but my mind still wide awake..zzzzzzzzz. Been taking these for a week now, just 1 (!), before bed and I'm having the deepest of sleep. I literally become part of my mattress. Very hard to leave the bed, but when I do, I feel rested. I also dream every night now, often 3 dreams or more. It's great! Highly recommend this product. I look forward to sleeping every night now!!!
Read the previous reviews about people having dreams weird ones I'd have to agree about this but only once a week but certainly having a good nights rest & don't seem to be struggling to get out of bed in a morning!Goes Well With:Water
Don't bother with the more expensive trade marked ZMA, take 3 of these every night and you'll have a great nights sleep, you'll awake feeling very rested and you body will have made the most of those gain pains. Oh and a slight side effect is a case of morning wood, or maybe that's just me.Goes Well With:Water
I've tried this and the trademarked ZMA and this wins for me hands down. I usually have a pre bedtime routine of Zinc and Magnesium taken with iBCAA and Creatine an hour before bed then a protein shake of 1 scoop each porridge and casein and 200ml each water and skimmed milk and I sleep straight through without fail every time. When I used the trademarked ZMA it made me sweat buckets and I still woke in the night, this stuff does the job without fail!Goes Well With:BCAA and creatine
Really has improved my sleep - makes me feel a lot more refreshed when I wake up. Recovery time slightly decreased too
Good, easy to swallow. Works good before sleep, helps me to rest better .
So far so good - I take 2 tablets every morning, and 2 before bed. Seems to be helping with my regime.
Great product, really helps with recovery. Just the same as ZMA was th same doses at a fraction of the cost. Full dose in one capsule means these last for ages, great value for money.
The product is great, I can feel the benefits already, particularly never slept better when taking it before sleep.
I get better sleep when I remember to take them. feel more rested and less tired. I will probably need to carry these in my backpack just so i can take them when i am not staying at my place
Better sleep, wake feeling refreshed and less time to fall asleep. Great product.
Having previously tried and had decent results with ZMA in powdered form, I was interested to see how this product stacked up. I won't bore you with the science of it all, as you either likely already know or can glean the information from this site or elsewhere. I will simply say that we men need to ensure that our daily zinc intake is sufficient, as we lose a considerable amount from, to put it delicately, pleasurable activities. This synergistic formula, much like ZMA, is also touted to facilitate more restful sleep, and I can already say that it has certainly done that for me. I sleep more deeply and have had a few entertaining dreams, too, although I cannot definitively attribute that the Zinc and Magnesium. The effects on my recovery and training have been good, and it has appeared to be helpful with maintaining muscle mass. For all of these reasons, and the reasonable price, I would definitely recommend.
Had this stuff for the past few months. Have 2 tablets right before bed (1 less than recommended) Sleep like the dead, DOMS is consistently lower while still progressing as always. Tablets are a bit large but that doesn't matter. I'd suggest these to anyone. Help with sleep, DOMS and recovery. The price is also noticeably cheaper than other places.Goes Well With:Cassien, milk, sleep.
Seems to do the job although the capsules are rather large and hard to swallow
Cheaper alternative to ZMA and does the same stuff. Great product.Goes Well With:N/A
used this years ago and forgot how good it was at helping me sleep all night. So far so good and it is a lot cheaper than my previous suppliers.
Excellent product. Aids sleeping at night which is what it was bought for.
I was advised by my PT to increase my levels of Zinc and Magnesium to support my eating and workouts and have been using this now regularly for the last month or so. Although it's not a small pill, they are okay to take and find they are making a difference when taken about an hour before bed.
I have been taking these Zinc and Magnesium tablets for just over two weeks now, not only have the aches and pains disappeared from the day after a session in the gym (I did have a break and they came back) I sleep so much better as well, the jar will last me approx 3 months so for the price I paid it's a bargain, i will be ordering more in the future.
Zinc and magnesium helps me get a good nights sleep, I highly recommend it.Goes Well With:Sleep
Zinc and Magnesium is great stuff, great price. A good supplement to take before you sleep.
Good product that aids sleep and recovery, price is very competitive especially when compared to ZMA.Goes Well With:Sleep
I bought only the small package of Zinc and Magnesium for a start but I'm really glad I did. It really helps me get up in the morning and improves my recovery much faster.
Zinc and Magnesium is a really good supplement. I can really feel the difference even after 1 week. I'm really happy.
Very good Zinc and Magnesium product with a high concentraded dosage in each pill. It really improves the sleep! I've experienced to get into the deep sleep a lot faster after taking this product! Great Price!Goes Well With:Water
I've taken this Zinc and Magnesium for a week, I know it's early to review but every day I wake up feeling great! It stops you getting those days where you wake up and just really can't be bothered. I'm really, really pleased with this product so far. I'm definitely going to buy the big 270 pill pot next time. As far as muscle mass goes, it's too early to tell but I would buy it for the great sleep alone!
Zinc and Magnesium really helps to improve my recovery after hard workouts. My sleep is deeper and I wake up feeling much fresher and sleep-satisfied than when I previously wasn't taking them. For me, these really do make a great difference.
I started taking Zinc and Magnesium a couple of weeks ago and my sleep pattern has changed so much. I now wake feeling so much more refreshed and for some reason seem to dream a lot more, and my training has been good since taking them.
Been using Zinc and Magnesium or ZMA type supps for a while now, and they really help improve my recovery after hard workouts. My sleep is deeper and I wake up feeling much fresher and sleep satisfied than when I previously wasn't taking them. I also notice a real difference in my mood due to not getting such quality sleep if I forget to take them. For me these really do make a great difference.
I bought these Zinc and Magnesium tablets as an aid to both recovering after my gym sessions and my ice hockey training and games. Although I haven't noticed any increase in my recovery times, I have noticed an improvement in my sleep and I get really vivid dreams.Goes Well With:Water.
This Zinc and Magnesium is a very good quality product as is usual with MyProtein. It works just like ZMA, I can get to sleep easier and feel refreshed in the morning. The weird dreams are a bonus for me but might put some people off.Goes Well With:Water on an empty stomach before going to bed.
Zinc and Magnesium is a pretty interesting product, and I can certainly vouch for what many people say about having weird dreams when taking it. Apart from that I have noticed that I have slightly more restful sleep, but I wake up a bit groggy in the morning. Will have to use it for a while before I reach a more solid conclusion.
I definitely feel a difference after taking these Zinc and Magnesium tablets. I feel better and sleep better, I will continue using these tablets.
