HMB, or beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyric acid, is a natural compound used to increase muscle mass. Our body needs protein to help build and repair body tissue, maintain a healthy immune system, and give us energy.
It is important to include protein in our diet, and we can source it from foods such as eggs, lean meat, nuts and oily fish – but our body can also make protein from amino acids which we can get through supplements such as Body Fuel™ HMB.
HMB is a byproduct of the normal breakdown of the amino acid leucine, which is highly concentrated in our muscles.
When our muscles are active during exercise, leucine breaks down to form HMB. Research shows that HMB increases muscle mass, and can help lessen the damage of intensive exercise. Leucine is the branched chain amino acid most responsible for protein synthesis, and muscle growth.
Body Fuel™ HMB, in its supplemental from, is used by bodybuilders and athletes who are interested in increasing the benefits of strength training. HMB supplements help to gain muscle by minimizing the amount of muscle that is broken down after you train.
Body Fuel™ HMB slows down the breakdown of proteins in the body. This means that more of the protein will be used for muscle regrowth and recovery. Body Fuel™ HMB can up to double the effectiveness of weight training, so reaching your goals has never been easier. Body Fuel™ HMB reduces muscle damage that’s associated with exercise and shortens the recovery period.
