Helps support the body’s ability to minimize protein breakdown and damage to muscle cells, which can occur subsequent to intense weight-training exercise. By minimizing protein breakdown, HMB may help "tip the scales" of protein balance in flavor of muscle growth. HMB is a must for those who over train, Athletes who perform resistance exercise, extensive workouts.
A compound that is produced in the body from the essential amino acid leucine and prevents muscle protein breakdown.
HMB is short for beta-hydroxy beta-methylbuyrate. It is a metabolite of L-Leucine, and has been studied for it effects on lean mass and strength.
See 'Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate'
Or Beta-hydroxy-metylbutyrate is produced in the body from proteins containing the amino acid Leucine. HMB's effects on muscle metabolism were discovered and patented by scientists at Iowa State University and Vanderbilt University. HMB may increase the strengthening effects of exercise by minimizing the muscle tissue breakdown that occurs after strenuous activity. This enables the body to speed up the muscle building process and gain significantly more strength.
beata-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate, a metabolic by-product of the amino acid leucine, alleged to retard the breakdown of muscle protein during strenuous exercise.
