What is HMB?
HMB is a clinically researched, naturally occurring metabolite of the branched-chain amino acid leucine. HMB normally plays a role in the regulation of protein breakdown in the body, helping to preserve lean muscle tissue.
HMB therefore can help to maintain muscle strength and mass when combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet. In addition, it may help to enhance recovery from intense exercise.
* HMB…ß-Hydroxy ß-Methylbutyrate

Athletes, aging adults, dieters, active individuals and persons recovering from illness or injury have used HMB for decades as a highly effective supplement for improving muscle health under a variety of external stressors.
