Zhang, Z., V. Talleyrand, J. Rathmacher, and S. Nissen, 1993 Change in plasma ß-hydroxy-ß-methylbutyrate (HMB) by feeding leucine, alpha-ketoisocaproate (KIC), and isovaleric acid (IVA) to pigs, FASEB J. 7:A392
Feeding leucine and KIC increased plasma HMB levels to that seen when HMB is fed. Feeding IVA also increased HMB suggesting nonoxygenase conversion to HMB.
