HMB Calcium Anhydrous
HMB is an excellent supplement for helping to increase lean mass, power and strength
β-hydroxy β-methylbutyrate calcium (HMB) is a metabolite of the amino acid Leucine and has been found to be an excellent sports supplement. HMB is used by athletes for performance goals or anyone with the aim of achieving better training gains and improving body composition.
When combined with resistance training, HMB can aid in the development of muscle mass and improve body composition and muscle strength. It has also been shown to preserve lean muscle mass and improve recovery after resistance training, allowing athletes to subsequently train harder and achieve better performance results.
HMB is suggested to aid muscle development by reducing the breakdown of muscle tissue helping to create an anabolic environment in the body for muscle growth. HMB is also suggested to reduce muscle damage which results from resistance training. People who are looking for significant improvements in muscle size and strength can benefit from HMB supplementation.
