HMB (Hydroxy Methyl Butyric acid) is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine, and is naturally synthesized in the human body. Studies have shown that HMB plays a key role in protein synthesis, a process that is important to the addition and maintenance of lean muscle tissue.
When taken as a supplement, studies have shown that HMB can both promote the addition of new muscle mass and slow the loss of muscle mass that occurs when eating at a caloric deficit.
Take two 500 mg capsules per day while participating in a strength training program in order to aid in muscle growth when eating at a caloric surplus, and to maintain muscle mass when eating at a caloric deficit.
HMB supplementation is non-toxic and causes no adverse side effects. Studies have found its use to be completely safe at daily doses of up to 3 grams, and higher doses are suspected to be safe as well.
