HMB (Calcium ß-Hydroxy ß-Methylbutyrate Monohydrate) is a potent metabolite of the Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) Leucine and is suggested by scientific studies to help protect muscle tissue, preserve muscle cells, promote muscle growth.* In research HMB is suggested to increase maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) and improve the respiratory compensation point (RCP).* It appears that HMB may reduce metabolic acidosis, and the research also shows that it helps athletes tolerate high-intensity activity over a long period of time.* Researchers also surmise that HMB lengthens the time to the onset of blood lactate accumulation (OBLA).* HMB improves the training status for endurance athletes for positive effects on endurance performance.*
