HMB from MASTER ZX Nutrition is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid Leucine, this amino acid is synthesized in the human body. HMB (Beta-Hydroxy-Beta-Methybutyrate) has been designed to duplicate all the functions of leucine such as reducing protein catabolism and increasing protein synthesis. There are a large volume of supplements designed to help build strength and increase muscle mass, one of the most effective is undoubtedly HMB.
It increases muscle mass and prevents catabolism, decreases protein degradation caused by hard workouts, helps lose fat and speed recovery times, maximizes strength gains and improves aerobic performance.
In short, HMB is a natural compound that is produced during the metabolism of the amino acid leucine (one of the branched-chain amino acids BCAA’s). A metabolite of leucine and has been shown to stimulate protein synthesis and decrease protein degradation.
Stimulates protein synthesis
Helps to lose body fat
Accelerates muscle recovery times
Strength gains are maximized with the use of HMB
