HMB – power & effect
HMB, or more precise Ca-HMB is short name for an effective muscle building supplement with a rather complicated name: calcium beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (or: β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate). HMB is a metabolite of the essential amino acid leucine that – thanks to its anabolic and anti-catabolic properties – has won the hearts of body builders, strength- and track athletes, not least because of it being a legal, naturally produced substance in humans.
Its main appeal is the anti-catabolic effect, in other words: a reduction of muscle loss thanks to HMB. This means that HMB as a metabolite of leucine also catalyzes important processes that are not only paramount for minimizing muscle injuries but also enable a faster regeneration. The stimulation of the muscle protein synthesis and the performance-boosting effect of HMB make it interesting and appealing for both body building and strength-/endurance athletes. In this case, the effect can clearly be seen as it results in the additional kilos you lift, the extra kilometer you run and in further achievements. HMB is available at IronMaxx in the convenient form of tablets. The consumption of one tablet – at least 30 min. before training – is recommended and sufficient.
Advantages at a glance:
- HMB increases muscle protein synthesis as well as muscle strength and lean body mass
- Boosts muscle repair and -regeneration
- Reduces muscle loss
- Supports the general protein synthesis
- HMB plus calcium in the convenient form of tablets
Muscle building supplement HMB (Ca-HMB) and its effect
HMB, or rather, Ca-HMB (Calcium beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) has, as mentioned before, a double effect: on the one hand and with the help of the muscle protein synthesis, the active agent of the muscle building supplement supports your strength and the growth of your muscles and lean body mass, on the other hand it prevents muscle loss. HMB stimulates so-called mTOR-receptors that promote the development (synthesis) of proteins and enzymes. Apart from this anabolic effect that is unquestionably essential for strength athletes, the muscle protecting effect of HMB is equally worth mentioning: regardless of the prior consumption of muscle building supplements during training or competition, it will inevitably come to muscle injuries (these lie within a microscopic range during a regular workout). When talking of a strong workout where the athlete goes to the limit or during long-lasting endurance sessions, HMB helps - thanks to its being part of the muscle protein synthesis – to protect your muscles and to speed up the regeneration after injuries.
HMB plus calcium
Needless to say that the mineral calcium with a share of 1344 mg HMB per tablet complements this matrix of Ca-HMB perfectly – and corresponds to a percentage of 30% per tablet of the recommended daily dose according to NRV (Nutrient Reference Values).
