Hydroxy Methyl-Butyrate Overview
BodyStrong’s HMB contains 100% pure Calcium Beta-Hydroxy Beta Methylbutyrate. HMB is a metabolite of the branched-chain amino acid l-leucine and is naturally synthesized in the body from l-leucine. HMB is thought to be the powerhouse behind the muscle building and anti-catabolic effects of l-leucine. HMB has been shown to support muscle tissue growth, prevent muscle catabolism, increase muscular endurance and increase protein synthesis. When used in conjunction with a sound diet and structured training program, HMB can add significantly to quality lean muscle gains as well as aid in lean mass preservation during dieting phases. *
How HMB Works to Build More Muscle
HMB enhances protein synthesis primarily through the mTOR pathway, a key growth regulatory pathway in skeletal muscle. mTOR regulates muscle cell growth, cell proliferation, protein synthesis and transcription among many other key cell functions. It also interacts with insulin, growth factors like IGF-1 and IGF-2 as well as all other amino acids. HMB is thought to increase localized levels of specific growth factors, increase protein synthesis for all other amino acids and enhance the anabolic effects of insulin on muscle cells and nutrient uptake.*
Many bodybuilders report that taking between 3-4 grams of HMB each day hits the “sweet spot” for noticeable lean mass gains. Since each capsule contains 1 gram of HMB, take one capsule in the morning with breakfast, one capsule before your workout, an optional capsule after your workout and one capsule with dinner, giving you 3-4 grams of total HMB for the day. Typically, results are noticed after 3-4 weeks of supplementation and significant improvements after 7-8 weeks. You do not have to cycle HMB, it is completely all-natural and can be taken year round. HMB should be a staple of every bodybuilders supplement regimen and is now proudly offered by BodyStrong at a price everyone can afford.
