What is HMB?

HMB or "beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate", is a metabolite of the branch chain amino acid Leucine and is produced naturally by the human body. HMB can also be found in many of the foods such as grapefruit and catfish plus it can even be found in mother's milk.


Although HMB is found in nature, it is very impractical and difficult to consume enough of these foods on a regular basis to provide the full ergogenic effects of HMB as you need to consume a least 3 grams per day. HMB supplements can easily deliver this level and have been shown to be advantageous to bodybuilders and those under extreme muscular stress, like track and field athletes.


Benefits of HMB

  • Boost strength levels and enhance gains in muscle size
