Zinc aspartate, is a chelated zinc supplement. Zinc aspartate is a salt of zinc with the amino acid aspartic acid.
A great many hard-training athletes and bodybuilders are actually deficient in the essential mineral Zinc Aspartate. Furthermore, Zinc deficiency is prevalent throughout the entire world, including the United States of America.
Both severe and moderate zinc deficiencies are positively correlated with lower testosterone levels in men. And while Zinc deficiency has been shown to lower your testosterone levels, Zinc supplementation has been correlated with an increase in testosterone levels. In fact, hypogonadism (decreased natural testosterone production) can actually result from not having enough Zinc in the diet.
Dietary Zinc levels also positively correlate with levels of testosterone in the body, which essentially means, the more Zinc in your body, the higher your levels of testosterone typically will be.
All this makes supplementation with zinc a no-brainer. Of all the mineral salts available, Zinc Aspartate formulations are the best absorbed.
