β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate is making a comeback, but you may know it as HMB.

Numerous studies have concluded that supplementing with HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate)
at a rate of 3g per day can significantly increase your lean muscle gains. If you’re a regular gym-user or prepping for a competition, this is good news; but what’s great about HMB is that if you use it during the off-season, while in rehab or even on vacation, you can expect to see less muscle mass loss than if you give up supplements altogether. As a break from training is one of the biggest worries we face when we travel, this information makes HMB as essential on holiday as your bottle of SPF.

HMB Fact Sheet

  • HMB is a metabolite of leucine – found in BCAAs – and offers a concentrated dose of amino acid that
    has been shown to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
  • HMB was first popular in the 1990s but fell out of favour after many deemed it too expensive compared to other products offering similar effects.
  • HMB is taken in capsules with water, there’s no need to make a shake.
  • HMB is often taken with creatine for a body boosting combination that builds lean muscle gains.
