HMB combats muscle breakdown*

HMB or Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate is a metabolite of leucine. HMB can help reduce muscle damage caused by exercise and boost muscle growth, strength, aerobic performance, resistance to fatigue and recovery. HMB appears to work best for untrained individuals starting a workout plan or for trained individuals exposed to periods of high physical stress. In other words, in you aren’t pushing yourself, it’s not going to help.*

Timing and Ideal Use: Take 3g spaced throughout the day. It may be especially helpful when you are restricting calories in a cutting/trimming phase while doing strenuous workouts to help you retain your muscle.* Leucine may be a better choice than HMB if you are in a bulking phase.
