HMB (Hydroxy Methyl Butyrate) is ideal for those who want to increase muscle mass, strength and recovery. HMB stimulates muscle protein synthesis (anabolism) and inhibits muscle protein degradation (anti catabolism).

HMB is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid leucine. Which means that HMB is naturally created within the human body when you consume high protein foods which contain the branched chain amino acid leucine. The body metabolises approximately 5% of your leucine consumption into making HMB and uses that HMB to preserve and build muscle mass.

By adding a HMB supplement to your diet you are effectively supporting your body to build and preserve muscle mass.

Since the mid 1990's studies suggest that supplementation with HMB may assist in:

  • Increasing Protein Synthesis
  • Reducing Muscle Protein Breakdown
  • Improving Body Composition
  • Increasing Lean Muscle Mass
  • Decreasing Muscle Damage
  • Improving Muscular Strength with Resistance Training

HMB works in a similar way to leucine in that it activates the anabolic signalling mTOR pathway which is responsible for muscle anabolism.

Anecodotally, many people have found that HMB works well whilst gaining muscle but works even better when dieting during calorie restriction to preserve muscle mass.

Other Benefits:

Various studies have also shown the benefits of HMB are quite significant, especially as we get older. From around age 40, we average 0.8% muscle loss per year, so by 70 years of age you will lose appoximately 25% of your muscle tissue. This accelerates to 1.5% per year in our 70's. HMB has been shown to help preserve muscle mass in older adults (Hongmei et al, 2015).

HMB has also been shown to help preserve muscle mass during long periods of inactivity i.e 10 days of bed rest where muscle wastage can occur (Deutz et al, 2013). This preservation of muscle mass can keep us healthy, independent, less prone to injuries and physically stronger.

HMB has also been shown to assist in increasing anaerobic peak power (Durkalec-Michalski et al, 2015) and improving aerobic performance (Lamboley et al, 2007).

Other studies have also shown HMB may assist in:

  • Increase The Muscular Benefits of Creatine Monohydrate
  • Improve Cognition in Learning & Memory
  • Reduce The Inflammatory Cytokine Response During Intense Training

HMB Powder works best when taken with creatine.

It also works well as part of the:

Ultimate Pre (30 mins) & Post Workout (Immedietely) Stack
Ingredients:
600-900ml of Water
1 scoop of Hydrolysed Protein i.e PeptoPro (or more depending on your bodyweight)
1/2 tsp Creatine Monohydrate
1 tsp HMB Powder
1 tsp Glutamine
1 tsp Leucine or IBCAA 4:1:1
1/4 tsp Beta Alanine
1/2 tsp Taurine
2/3 tsp Citrulline Malate 2:1
2/3 tsp Arginine AAKG

Add carbs if required i.e (Pre) 1/2 scoop of Organic Instant Oats (Post) 1 scoop Maltodextrin/Dextrose

If you want to make it in bulk then the following makes up approximately 100 serves:

3kg Hydrolysed Protein (or more depending on your body weight)
500g Creatine Monohydrate
300g HMB Powder
500g Glutamine
500g Leucine or BCAA’s
250g Beta Alanine
500g Taurine
250g Citrulline Malate 2:1
300g Arginine AAKG

Add carbs if required i.e 100 serves you will need (Pre) 2kg Organic Instant Oats and (Post) 4kg Maltodextrin/Dextrose.

Serving Size: 1/3 tsp (1g)

Servings Per 200g Pack: 200
