Adequate zinc intake directly affects performance and strength in training because it plays an essential role in the production of natural anabolic hormones.

Research shows that having significant amounts of zinc available in the body allows for higher secretion of the 3 most important hormones i.e.

  1. testosterone;
  2. growth hormone and
  3. IGF-1.  

Athletes report the benefits of supplemental zinc as this mineral supports the secretion of growth hormone and IGF-1, which are essential for muscle growth and performance.

In addition, the post-workout testosterone boost leads to strength gains and better recovery in humans. Not being deficient in zinc will also give you alot more energy and improve your metabolism.
