More about HMB:
HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine and is also produced naturally by the body. It occurs in small
amounts in some protein-rich foods such as fish and milk.
HMB is ideal for use by all athletes wanting to gain lean muscle size and strength, including bodybuilders,
rugby players, sprinters and other strength athletes. HMB is also used widely by endurance athletes, such
as runners, cyclists and triathletes, as it reduces muscle damage following long periods of exercise, and can
speed up recovery between training sessions.
Every muscle in your body is made up of millions of muscle cells. When you exercise, these cells are
subject to tremendous amounts of stress, which in turn, cause what is known as micro-trauma, within the
muscle. Protein then leaks continuously from these damaged cells until they are repaired several days later.
In simple terms, HMB plugs the leaks in muscle cells, leading to greater gains in lean mass, muscle strength
and a reduction in muscle damage during periods of intense training.
HMB has been the subject of scientific scrutiny since the mid 1990's, and several studies report impressive
findings. For example, a team of researchers followed a group of men for three weeks. Gains in lean muscle
were almost three times greater in the group using HMB. In addition, muscle strength doubled in the HMB
Researchers at an American University tested two groups of runners (one group using HMB, while the
others took a 'dummy' supplement). After six weeks of supplementation, both groups took part in a 20-
kilometer run. One day after the run, cell damage was 58% higher in the subjects not using HMB. The
positive effect of HMB supplementation was still present four days after the run, with HMB users showing
9% less muscle damage.
Supplementing with HMB benefits weight training athletes or anyone experiencing extreme muscular stress,
for example track and field athletes, rugby players or endurance athletes who face a high risk of muscle
HMB prevents muscle tissue breakdown that can occur subsequent to strenuous exercise and therefore
boosts strength levels and enhances gains in muscle size. It assists the body minimising protein breakdown
that can occur subsequent to intense exercise. By doing so, HMB has been shown to help the sportsmen
and woman recover faster from exercise, which leads to greater gains in muscle size and strength.
Power athletes supplementing with HMB have shown increases in muscle mass and power of up to 14%,
without negatively affecting cardiovascular fitness. Recovery time between workouts was also significantly
