Nutrimuscle ZMB Pidolates

If proteins, Peptopro, creatine or BCAAs, are effective in accelerating muscle recovery, on the other hand, they are not effective in regenerating the nervous system.

It is in this context that Nutrimuscle has developed the new generation ZMA: ZMB Pidolates.

The latter primarily targets the factor most limiting progress: nerve regeneration.
If it is by exciting the nervous system that we are strong under the bar, nervous recovery involves the creation of a totally opposite environment, that is to say deep relaxation. This muscular and nervous relaxation is obtained at night.

However, it is not guaranteed. There are days when you wake up feeling good, while others, you are groggy and you feel that your muscles have remained tight all night.

In order to promote this regenerative relaxation, Nutrimuscle innovates with ZMB Pidolates.

ZMB Pidolates Nutrimuscle contains two exclusive innovative ingredients: Pido-Magnesium® - Pido-Zinc®

Usage tips

Who is ZMB Pidolates for?

ZMB Pidolates is a supplement that may be of interest:

  • Athletes, to optimise muscular and neural recovery after a workout
  • Inactive people who need a mineral supply and wish to improve their sleep


3 capsules per day are recommended, giving you a total of 1200 mg of Pido-Magnesium® and 15 mg of Pido-Zinc®.

When should I take ZMB Pidolates?

The average dosage is 3 capsules, to be taken all together in the evening with dinner or before going to bed.

For some people (approx. 5%) ZMB has no effect on sleep, or it may even keep them awake.
If this is the case, the dosage should be adjusted, and 3 capsules should be taken first thing in the morning or during the day.

How do I take ZMB Pidolates?

Your dosage of Nutrimuscle ZMB Pidolates should obviously to be adjusted according to your specific mineral needs. In order to cover 100% of your daily needs of:

  • Magnesium (375 mg), the equivalent of 4.33g of Pido-Magnesium® is required (1g of Pido-Magnesium® providing approximately 87mg of Magnesium and 913mg of pidolic acid) 
  • Zinc (10 mg), the equivalent of 49.1mg of Pido-Zinc® is required (1mg of Pido-Zinc® providing about 0.2mg of Zinc and 0.8mg of pidolic acid)

Fortunately, food covers a large amount of these needs, even if, as studies show, the French get only 88% of the recommended minimum on average (1). Supplementing with Nutrimuscle ZMB Pidolates will fill this gap.

Interactions with other Nutrimuscle products

Synergies between supplements:

Nutrimuscle ZMB Pidolates improves the effectiveness of Organic Yerba Mate, the Natural Bio Burner, Organic Green Tea, and Lactium, because these supplements have a relaxing effect.

Adverse reactions between supplements:

ZMB Pidolates should not be taken at the same time as Potassium Bicarbonate, to avoid bloating, or Organic Guayapi Guarana, so as not to hinder its stimulating effect.

Purity of raw materials guaranteed

It's rare for consumers to have access to the names of the suppliers of the raw materials that go into the supplements they consume. However, this is essential to ensuring product traceability.
At Nutrimuscle, we use only the highest quality minerals guaranteed by leading manufacturers:

French group Solabia, which is HACCP and ISO9001 certified, produces Nutrimuscle's ZMB Pidolates.

Benefits of ZMB Pidolates in more detail

Improved sleep

When training hard, it is sometimes difficult to relax after the effort. By staying tense, we tire all the more nervously. And while we are tense, the nervous system obviously cannot regenerate itself.

Pido-Magnesium® has relaxing properties that will promote nerve regeneration by helping to sleep better.

Scientific studies have tested different forms of magnesium or a placebo in rats. The latter received either Pido-Magnesium®, magnesium aspartate, magnesium lactate or a placebo, 1 hour before falling asleep (3). Once they were asleep, the researchers abruptly woke the rats up.

With the placebo or magnesium aspartate, none of the rats were able to fall back to sleep immediately after waking up because they remained restless:

  • 14% were able to fall back to sleep immediately thanks to magnesium lactate.
  • 71% were able to fall back to sleep immediately thanks to Pido-Magnesium®.

We therefore see that Pido-Magnesium® is the most effective form of magnesium for nervous relaxation after stress and to promote sleep.

In some users, zinc-magnesium supplementation will make it easier to fall asleep. But it is above all on the quality of sleep that ZMB PIDOLATES Nutrimuscle will make the difference.

=> The regeneration of the nervous system will be more efficient and you will quickly be stronger under the bar.

Helps in muscle relaxation
In a second experiment, other rats received these same forms of magnesium, 1 hour before an amphetamine injection. The purpose of the latter is to induce extreme nervous excitement in animals (3).

Magnesium aspartate and magnesium lactate increase stress levels by 10%.

On the contrary, thanks to muscle relaxation, Pido-Magnesium® lowers stress levels by 30%.

Scientific in-vitro studies (in test tubes) carried out on the nerve-muscle pair show that Pido-Magnesium® induces relaxation which is reversible.

This means that unlike drugs that aim to relax the muscles, in the morning you will wake up feeling fit and strong and not weak, because the relaxing action will have ceased to work. So you can train or start your day in great shape.

Impact on the brain

In the brain, pidolic acid acts as an antagonist of glutamate (an amino acid that acts as a stimulant of the central nervous system). If glutamate is a good thing to train, because it gives strength, in the evening, it can on the other hand prevent you from sleeping.

Pidolic acid will hinder the action of glutamate which explains the relaxing effect of this protein. Pidolic acid is all the more effective when it is coupled with another nerve relaxant: magnesium (3).

But the benefits of pidolic acid don't end there.

Scientific research has shown that regular use of pidolic acid improves memory, both in animals and in humans (4 - 5).

Vascular relaxation
Medical studies have also shown that Pido-Magnesium® promotes vascular relaxation which improves blood exchange (6 - 13).

Thus, the arrival of anabolic nutrients, in one direction, and the evacuation, in the other direction, of metabolic waste induced by training, accelerates. In addition, cardiac work is facilitated which contributes to general rest and better sleep.

Long-term impacts of Pidolate
Pidolate (also called L-pyrrolidone carboxylic acid by scientists) is a molecule found naturally in our bodies, especially in the skin, liver, and brain (7).
Within the latter, pidolate promotes the secretion of GABA, a natural molecule that facilitates relaxation.

Due to its presence in multiple tissues, the impact of pidolate has been evaluated in a wide variety of pathologies. Thus, many studies have examined the effects of taking more or less long pidolate on health.

We have a large number of studies that demonstrate the long-term safety of pidolate when taken orally, in adults, seniors, pregnant women, children and adolescents (8 to 13) (14 to 19). (20 to 26).

ZMB and Magnesium Citrate, what's the difference?

If you are already taking ZMB, is it in your interest to take Magnesium Citrate as well or will it duplicate?

If you have an excellent absorption capacity for magnesium, adding magnesium citrate is not necessarily useful.

On the other hand, if your assimilation capacities are not optimal, it is wise to add magnesium citrate to increase your magnesium intake (see below for clues that will help you assess your absorption capacities).

More than a magnesium intake, ZMB is above all a recovery supplement thanks to its content in pidolate, a relaxing amino acid.

ZMB is best used in the evening, but not before a workout. Magnesium citrate can be taken throughout the day in order to split the intake to optimize its absorption (see below).
