Over 20 Million Servings of HMB Were Taken Last Year*
Why? Because it helps improve the effects of weight training, improves indicators of endurance, and can assist in recovery. HMB studies on men, women, young, old, athletes, and novices have been published and the research shows HMB increases strength, improves endurance, and aids in recovery.
Science instead of hype
HMB aids in increasing muscle protein in two ways:
1. Decreases protein breakdown from hard workouts
HMB disrupts protein breakdown by decreasing the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic pathway. This means you can increase strength faster because your body has less muscle damage that needs to be repaired and thus, HMB helps you to maximize your training benefits.
2. Increases protein synthesis for increased strength
Several studies indicate that HMB stimulates protein synthesis through multiple mechanisms including the mTOR pathway. It has been shown to improve the results of weight training and lower LDL cholesterol, blood pressure, and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
