Science-backed formulation to slow muscle degradation
Supports muscle health
HMB is produced naturally in the body in small amounts when metabolising the amino acid leucine. HMB may help to reduce muscle protein breakdown as well as stimulate protein synthesis and provide benefits to exercise. In order to maximise HMB’s anticatabolic properties, it is necessary to supplement with around 3g per day in order to raise levels in the body.
Supplementing with 3g HMB daily may reduce age-related muscle loss and stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
HMB supplementation paired with exercise helps in the maintenance of body composition in older adults. HMB may also help the elderly with a sedentary lifestyle to maintain lean body mass.
Healthy muscle mass can help you move freely to complete daily routines such as walking, gardening, making the bed, cleaning the house or other fun activities.
Strong muscles keep the joints in good shape.
Individuals aged 40+ should begin considering HMB supplementation. Active individuals may also benefit from taking HMB near exercising or working out. HMB is most effective when consumed for at least two weeks prior to exercise.
