HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is an amino acid, but derives from the breakdown of Leucine, a part of normal dietary protein. HMB can be also found in certain foods like catfish, alfalfa and it is also a natural component of mother's milk, but is scarcely found in a normal diet. HMB was discovered in the 1950's and has been studied for several decades, but has only really become popular as a sports supplement around 1995.
HMB has been proven to delay the breakdown of muscle protein as well as promote tissue growth. Early studies have shown that HMB supplementation also lowers cholesterol and helps strengthen the immune system.
In a controlled scientific study, 41 male volunteers aged 19 to 29 were given 0, 1.5, or 3 grams of HMB everyday for 3 weeks. The participants also lifted weights 3 days a week for 90 minutes. The results suggested that HMB could enhance strength and lean mass in direct proportion to intake.
In another controlled study reported in the same article, 32 male volunteers took either 3 grams of HMB daily or placebo, and then lifted weights for 2 or 3 hours daily, 6 days a week for 7 weeks. The HMB group saw a significantly greater increase in its bench-press strength than the placebo group. However, there was no significant difference in body weight or fat mass by the end of the study.
As a dietary supplement we recommend consuming 1g, 3 times daily evenly spread throughout the day for the best results.
Add just over half of an MP small scoop (1g) to your preferred amount of water or fruit juice and consume immediately.
1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (small) weighs 1.8g.
This product is 100% HMB with nothing added or taken away.

"Got this delivered along with some hurricane and creatine and as always it arrived on time with no problems. Be careful opening the pouch as this is very fine powder and tends to float out everywhere. It tastes fairly rank but I expected this from other reading other reviews, but it isnt half as bad as some people make it out to be.. i just mixed it with some hurricane and threw it down the hatch. Also mixes well with orange juice. Performance wise i thought the HMB really worked. I didnt notice much difference for a week or so but after that i felt recovery time was greatly reduced and also saw some good strength gains. obviously you're gonna have to train hard as theres no substitute for that!! I would recommend this to anyone but to see gains take at least 10 or 15 grams split throughout the day mornings and evenings"
