HMB (ß-hydroxy ß-methylbutyrate) is a metabolite of the essential BCAA amino acid Leucine and is synthesized in the human body. It produces about 0.2-0.4 grams per day. Standard doses used in research studies have been around 3 grams per day. L-Leucine itself is becoming a more and more popular ingredient as a great amino acid for bodybuilders. When compared to Leucine, HMB appears to be significantly more powerful on a gram per gram basis at constricting the rate of muscle protein breakdown.*

SUPPORT LEAN MUSCLE NATURALLY
This product is designed for athletes to be used both in the off-season and during contest preparation.
HMB appears to be an interesting supplement for the purpose of reducing muscle wasting during periods where muscle breakdown is accelerated and should assist athletes currently on a reduced calorie diet.*
HMB is suitable for long-term continuous use. As a dietary supplement, research suggests HMB may promote muscle gain, prolong muscular endurance, and enhance overall muscle recovery by minimizing the amount of protein broken down in the muscles after extended periods of exercise.*
