The missing Zinc
By Lee Milligan Jr
When it comes to maximizing your strength and muscle
building potential, then Zinc is of paramount importance in that respect.
You see Zinc is nessesary for Vitamin A to be properly transported from
the liver. Zinc is also responsible for protein synthesis, RNA, and DNA
synthesis and is a primary potentiator for Testosterone production. Zinc
inhibits levels of aromatase throughout the body so that natural Testosterone
levels will remain high. Zinc also stimulates the Pituitary Gland to release
Luteinizing Hormone which in turn causes the Testes to produce Testosterone.
The best supplement we have found so far is from a Company called Nature's
Life which is Zinc Picolinate in a 30mg strength. The RDA is set at 15mg
per day but for Weight and Strength Trainers using a high protein diet,
a good start would be 30mg per day. Zinc is one of the most important Minerals
nessesary for Bodybuilding fitness and health. Please remember
to always consult with your Doctor before starting any new supplement and
