HMB May Promote Lean Mass*

PUT YOUR BODY IN A POTENTIAL STATE OF MUSCLE GROWTH*

HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, Leucine and plays a role in protein synthesis. It is naturally produced in the human body in low levels, but as a dietary supplement it's said to promote muscle mass and give support to muscle recovery.* Small amounts of HMB are present in foods such as catfish, grapefruit and alfalfa.

Supplementing with HMB can give the body an advantage for recovery by minimizing the amount of protein that is broken down in the muscles after exercise.* The result is that your muscles will be in an anabolic state longer, allowing for more potential muscle growth.*

Build A Bigger Body*

MINIMIZE PROTEIN BREAKDOWN AND OPTIMIZE MUSCLE GAIN*

Although a relatively new supplement, HMB is said to provide several benefits related to building and maintain muscle.* HMB supports the body's ability to minimize protein breakdown (catabolism) during intense exercise, and when combined with a resistance training program may promote muscle gain and strength.* Supplementing with HMB may provide the following benefits:

  • Promotes lean muscle mass*
  • Minimizes muscle breakdown*
  • Assists in muscle repair and recovery*
  • Supports immune system health*

Attain The Competitive Edge*

HMB CAN BREAK THE BARRIERS*

HMB supplementation is ideal for someone who is beginning to train for the first time, starting to train again after a layoff from injury, or for anyone who is increasing their training intensity and volume.

If you are a beginner, a hard gainer, an over trainer or a competitive fitness athlete who needs to maintain muscle mass while reducing your calorie intake, then HMB may be the supplement for you.

Stack For Success

CREATINE + HMB = MUSCLE MASS*

The body naturally produces approximately 0.2-0.4 grams of HMB per day. A standard amount for supplementation is ranged from 1.5 to 3 grams per day, usually divided into 2 or 3 doses. However, when supplementing with HMB it is important to always follow the recommendations for the particular product you are taking.

Try taking HMB before training to optimize your muscles response to the workout session and to minimize soreness. Also, studies suggest that stacking HMB and creatine together may support additional benefits in a synergetic fashion - making it a great muscle building cocktail.
