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.

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.

Great product all round, good ratio of serving per kilo unlike other brands. Great taste, mixes well with instant oats to make it a good bulking product. Various flavour so you can always try something new. Great product and always fast delivery.Goes Well With:Instant oats
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.
Cheaper ZMA. Better sleep, wake feeling refreshed and less time to fall asleep. Can only lead to improved recovery.Goes Well With:empty stomach + water.
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.

This product although good is 100mg over the tolerable upper intake for supplemental magnesium. 450 mg is an excessive amount and puts the kidney under unnecessary stress. I recommend 350 at most - this is affirmed by the office of dietary supplements.
Excellent product. Aids sleeping at night which is what it was bought for.
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!
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.
I took 3 of the Zinc and Magnesium tablets before going to sleep, and didn't see any difference whatsoever. I guess it doesn't work for everybody.
Zinc and Magnesium really helped me for sleep and recovery totally and at the price I'm paying for it I can't complain. Keep up the good work my protein top product.
Zinc and Magnesium works very well for me, as I feel it has helped me gain a bit more mass. It's a very good product, with very fast delivery.
I had Zinc and Magnesium before, and I think these work much better. I've been taking it for a couple weeks now and seems to help me sleep a lot better, and I feel a lot fresher in the morning too. It's also really good value for money.Goes Well With:Lean Essentials Bundle
Got these instead of ZMA, have better sleep when I take them and I feel a lot fresher in the morning. Think I'll invest in ZMA next time as I've heard ZMA is more effective than just Zinc and Magnesium alone. If you've got spare cash then its worth buying.
Zinc and Magnesium is an excellent product to aid recovery and is a great source of required minerals.
Zinc and Magnesium is a perfect extra supp to your daily multi vitamin. If your daily multi has 10-15mg zinc, you will get 20-25mg daily by only taking one of these, and still get 150mg magnesium in citrate form, and not aspartate as you get in many ZMA products. I think it is better than ZMA but cannot say what it does for me. I just take it to fill the daily needs for my zinc and magnesium, and as I eat right, 1 cap a day with my multi is a perfect ratio of everything.
I started taking the Zink and Magnesium Combo and soon experienced I am mentally much more alert and my concentration improved. My wife and daughter also started taking it, and they since have better health overall. These are Minerals much needed by our bodies in order to function best however not many food contain Magnesium and Zink. The food that do contain it don't contain enough of these marvellous Minerals. Go ahead and care for yourself and your family and take the supplement. Excellent product!Goes Well With:Water.
I brought these supplement tablets about 2 weeks ago, read the instructions on the label and started taking them an hour before bed. Each night I am able to get a good night sleep, I'm a deep sleeper anyway but these really put me into a deep sleep...snoring away. Also I'm able to wake up from my alarm no problem, feeling great and ready for the day ahead. I've seen improvements in my recovery time after football and gym and noticeably better skin. Great product along with a balance diet and workout regime.
I don't normally leave reviews, but I have to say I love this product..! When I first started taking them, I was skeptical, but now I consider them a necessity before I go to bed.. Although they can cause some pretty intense dreams, I definitely wake up feeling a lot more refreshed than I used to, especially after a tough tarining session the day before..! Highly recommended..
I love the Zinc and Magnesium, they work wonders. I feel great when I wake in the morning no matter how little sleep I get, the only problems I have is going to sleep. It takes me ages, but maybe it's just me.
"Zinc and Mag is a must since most of us, if not all of us are deficient in these two minerals. So whether or not you feel a massive difference after one serving or a months serving I believe you have to be patient and don't jump to conclusions after one bad nights sleep or even a morning when you feel groggy. If theres one thing I dislike its people commenting on a supplement for A) taste and B) its immediate affect (good or bad). If you think zinc and mag caused you to be groggy in the morning then I would first question your diet in the first place not blame the supplement for not working. Its not a magic pill, give it time, experiment and then comment on all the variables! RANT OVER! "
"I started using this product around 6 months ago and would highly recommend it. Under a lot of stress at the time, I tried the tablets to help me sleep, and for me they definitely seem to work. I seem to get a proper deep sleep when using them and also get fairly vivid dreams which is fun! I've had acne in the past and these tablets have had a positive effect in my opinion, (both zinc and magnesium have benefits for the skin). Around £10 cheaper than ZMA, these are a great bargain. Finally a quick warning: Don't mix with alcohol! "
"Started taking these as I am terrible at sleeping, usually waking 3 -4 times per night, somtimes for up to an hour. Read some reviews online so thought i would give them a go. I have to say my sleep has improved no end. Some nights i sleep straight through and when i dont, i usualkl only wake once. I dont get the vivid dreams, not had any spots etc. I am reluctant to comment on their affect on growth as I started a different training program 4 weeks ago (same time i started taking these) and i have seen greater gains. Not sure which is more responsible for this (maybe a combination of both). Great value at £9 for a months worth but if you can stretch to it, £19 for 3 months worth is awsome as the trademarked version is around £20 for 1 months supply. Will definatley keep buying."
"First off I'd just like to say this is the first MP product I've had issues with (after a year of buying all my supplements here) Recommended by a training partner of mine and after reading the reviews I though I'd give them a go. I can say that for me they did seem to aid in recovery time; if only mildly. I did however find myself getting acne on my back and spots on my face. Before using the trademark version I never had problems with either. Another issue I had was with sleeping, I'm a light sleeper normally but when taking these tabs I literally cannot wake up in the morning no matter how much sleep I've had, I wake up feeling groggy and drowsy every day. I did use the full 90 caps to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I won't be purchasing them again. Going off what others have said I believe they work for some people and not for others as in my case. My training partner swears by them and still uses them now after months; in conclusion I'd recommend you purchase some by all means and see if they work for you, if not there's plenty of alternatives out there."
"Ive always been a light sleeper, I struggle to get to sleep and wake up feeling tired. I've tried various natural things to help, but nothing made a lasting difference, so after some more research I stumbled upon these and though it was worth a shot. 1st night - Feel asleep in under 45 mins(1145 ish ), normally takes an hour or more. I woke up naturally before my alarm, feeling rested at 6am. 2nd night - Feel asleep sooner again. I woke up and felt amazing and instantly wanted to do something active. Loads of energy, felt very rested and felt good all day. I even did my 10 mile bike ride faster than ever, probably down to a better nights sleep Very pleased and will defiantly be buying more!! "
"I order this back a while ago but did not get any chance to use as I got a gnarly viral infection in my intestines and stomach i was in absolute agony, ended up with a 2 week stay in hospital and a 5week layoff from work 7 weeks out of training in total. I only mention this because Ive been training for 4weeks again, the first two weeks forgot about this supplement was just managing 30mins tops, very low weights had to be used hardly any energy. Diet etc same, then remembered i had this, thought may aswell give it ago. After two weeks feel great managing 5 days in the gym almost back to normal-still long road to recovery but easier without real deep aches and pains. Definately helps recovery. I cant really comment on sleep with being out of routine and in hospital mine was totally out of synch and it was never great before have noticed i am alot better in the mornings so must improve my quality of sleep"
"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've been taking for ages, it has noticeable improvement on my sleep."
I tried the trademarked version before and it worked well. I realised that MP's own zinc and magnesium is exactly the same. It helps with sleep and improves strength somewhat. Highly recommended.
Awesome! Just awesome. Definately an improvent in performance...no doubt about it. I am increasing my weights quicker and I look forward to adding some bulk over the coming months.
"The increased recovery times are great! im also lifting heavier weights more comfortably.. and im not taking creatine. the best thing about these tablets, is the quality of sleep im getting! i sleep so much better at night now. going from waking up 2-3 times in a night to sleeping straight though. also falling asleep more quickly too (even through the exam period). even more awake when i do arise. great buy!"
Helps sleep immencly and thats where your body does most of its recovering so definitly a good buy
"As someone who has taken the trademarked version in the past I can honestly say I see no difference between that and this, MP's Zinc and Magnesium - other than the price!"
"took for 2 month... had improvements in sleep, but on performance in the gym with little or nothing, voting 3.5"
"Confusing....it does give you strange and better dreams and improved sleep but as far as recovery is concerned, Im unsure if it has any viable effects, will keep taking it though. I believe I am deficient in zinc anyway, so I take it for them reasons"
took for 30 days and after the second night had the best nights sleep. also had more energy for my workouts with increased levels of indurance. would recomend to anyone who wants a good nights sleep and anyone who wants to aid there recovery.\n\ngreat product at a great price.
"loving these bad boys. really good quality deep sleep on just 2 caps pre bed.\n\nwaking up is no problem, even when its 6am for tkd."
"this product has made my sleeps so deep yet no problem waking up at 5.30 for my morning run\nalso after training this helps my recover, soreness becoming a thing of the past"
Not slept well for years due to body pain after exercise so I started taking this and have discovered the wonderful feeling of waking up in the morning having slept all night.
"Had to say something, this stuff has def made a difference, iv noticed my bench go from 6-8 0n 120k to 3 sets of 10!!"
"I have sooooo much energy for my workouts. My bench press endurance has increased dramatically and I have slept really well! One thing is that along with the extra energy and drive for working out I am also very very angry, I'm taking a fat burner at the same time as these and when the caffeine from those kicks in I get really quite angry. But they don't seem to affect the lean tissue increase I'm getting through the impact whey, BCAAs & Zinc & Mag. Overall the stuff I'm taking is interacting well physically I have burned alot of fat, while my increases in strength have been astounding."
the recommended intake section requires a bit of alteration...if 30mg zinc is 200% then 3 tablets would be 600% and similar goes with B6.There are Nth number of scientific studies suggesting that over consumption of each of these minerals carries a health hazard.\nBetter stick to 1tab per day and enjoy its benefits.MP zinc is great!!!
Yet again MP prices cannot be matched. Yes this has less zinc than the branded version. But taken with my multi vits this bumps up the zinc to the full 30mg per day. Its still refreshing in the day of over hyped and priced supps that MP shows you do not need to pay through the nose to get quality products.
"Good cost effective product, I am surprised no reviews so far. This should be part of the staple supplement usage of a bodybuilder and my experience is that this product delivers the same as the trademarked version."
