What is HMB Powder?
HMB powder is a premium grade amino acid. HMB is derived as a bi-product of the normal breakdown of the essential amino acid Leucine. HMB is produced by the human body from the proteins in our diet and consumed in small amounts from some of the foods we eat. Taking HMB gives the body a kick start with muscle recovery and can reduce the amount of muscle breakdown and muscle degradation post intense training.
What Are The Benefits to HMB Supplements?
HMB became a popular choice of supplement for bodybuilders in the early 1990's and more recently for elite athletes. Supplementation with HMB is proven to delay the breakdown of muscle protein, lower cholesterol and strengthen the body's immune system. Studies have also demonstrated that HMB can enhance muscle growth and reduce muscle wasting. HMB does this by allowing the body to stay in a 'muscle building state' for a longer period of time, giving you more opportunity to build more muscle mass.
