Your Expert Guide To HMB
Calcium β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate Monohydrate (HMB) is an active metabolite of Leucine that reduces muscle protein breakdown. HMG Powder helps you to keep on muscle mass while operating at a calorie deficit. Great for cutting up before a bodybuilding competition, HMB is anti-catabolic and supplementation will retain more muscle mass over time and is especially effective for athletes "cutting" on a calorie restricted diet.
HMB is great when protecting your muscle mass, building more muscles while lowering body fat, and is helpful in synthesizing protein. It also lets you gain power and endurance without overtraining, thereby increasing your athletic and workout performance.
Why Do We Use It In Our Products?
HMB is anti-catabolic, meaning it protects your muscles from being broken down. Supplementation of HMB helps reduces muscle mass loss over time, making it especially effective for athletes on a calorie restricted diet, or bodybuilders dropping fat for a competition.
It prevents the body from breaking down muscle tissue for energy. This means that the body is naturally conditioned to get energy from breaking down fat, instead of muscle. By supplementing with HMB, you increase the metabolism of fat while retaining your muscles. Taking supplements with this ingredient also helps you follow a protein-centered diet, and your consumption of fats, carbohydrates, and protein can be better controlled. The fat loss brought about by HMB will have you reduce your carbohydrate intake, and your body will be required to convert other food groups into energy. Ultimately, the protein from your diet becomes utilized solely for muscle recovery and growth.
Since HMB encourages your body to burn fat instead of muscle, you can effectively maximize your body’s natural response to exercise and strength training. Studies have shown that HMB supplementation increases endurance in athletes during training. HMB also shows to raise aerobic capacity as you continue supplementation.
