Research published in the Journal of Applied Physiology and other peer reviewed publications has suggested that HMB may have an effect on increasing muscle weight and strength.* Three grams of HMB per day can help highly trained muscles combat protein breakdown, assist in muscle repair and support increased endurance.*
Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) is an important metabolite of the essential branched chain amino acid (BCAA) L-Leucine. Human and animal studies suggest protein breakdown and support significant increases in muscle strength and size when combined with intense resistance training (1,2,3)*
