If you take some of your time and decide to do some research on what HMB is, you won’t find much information on this product. This is mainly because the HMB compound was discovered in the 1950s. We owe this discovery to a scientist who was doing some research and testing here and there that would eventually lead to HMB discovery. It wasn’t easy to find as it was discovered inside the amino acid known as Leucine, a crucial Branched Chain Amino Acid that helps with muscle growth.
If you are like me, you are probably skeptical of consuming a supplement with little to no information backing it up, but then again, having too much information on a product can be even worse. Luckily some research was conducted, and not one negative thing was said about this supplement.
HMB has two major and important functions: decreasing protein degradation and increasing lean muscle mass in the human body. There has been testing done for this compound, and all of the results have been positive, therefore proving that HMB does, in fact, work.
HMB helps with protein synthesis, so taking this supplement can be assimilated with a car. For example, if you don’t add the correct additives to the engine, it will not run at 100%, but the car will run smoothly if you do the opposite. Your body is no different from a machine. In fact, the body is the most complex machine the human race has ever known off. Every time you eat or exercise, imagine what you’re doing and putting into your body, think what you could do differently, and make it happen.
Many individuals like stacking supplements together. If you’re not familiar with stacking, don’t worry, this term basically means combining different compounds or supplements to get better results. Some people agree that mixing some of them can bring far greater results than taking each supplement independently.
HMB is not a heavy-calorie supplement, and it’s all-natural as your body produces small quantities of it. You can mix it with Creatine, for example, I know a lot of people have tried it, and they say it works great because not only are you gaining lean muscle mass,s but you are also pumping water into the muscle, therefore, making you feel an look more muscular and fuller.
