New form of β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) shown to improve delivery

Blog Article ImageResearchers examined whether HMB in a free acid gel form would improve availability to muscle tissues.  Two studies were conducted consisting of four males and four females (ages 19-29 years old).  Each of the subjects was given in random order treatments of CaHMB (currently available powdered form) capsules and HMB free acid gel with at least 1-week washout period between each treatment.  Plasma and urine was analyzed showing a significant difference in delivery time.    These studies indicated that using this new delivery of HMB free acid gel does optimize the delivery timing of the HMB dose to help achieve maximum compliance and efficacy during exercise and makes HMB more readily available to muscle tissues. 

To find out more about this study and how HMB free acid gel improves the delivery of HMB, read the abstract here.
