HMB is a by-product or metabolite of the breakdown of the amino acid leucine (leucine) in the body, which is found in both vegetable and animal foods. Its feature is to burn fat and build muscle and at the same time increase your performance during exercise.
There have been many clinical trials of HMB (b-hydroxy-b-methylbutyrate) and these trials show promise. In a study conducted at Iova State University, 40 men were given HMB (3 g per day) and a placebo.
Individuals did weight exercises three days a week for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks of use and exercise, the group using HMB achieved more muscle growth than those who did not use HMB; It has been found that they burn more fat and are stronger.
HMB is definitely not a miraculous dietary supplement alone, it will not see any positive effect on individuals who do not exercise. It is especially recommended to be taken with creatine monohydrate (creatine monohydrate). In this way, you will be able to get better efficiency from exercises.
Since both HMB and creatine monohydrate are substances created in the body, their use together will not cause any side effects.
Usage: It is recommended to take 3 to 5 grams of HMB daily with meals and after work.
