WHAT IS HMB?
HMB stands for B-Hydroxy B-Methylbutyrate Monohydrate. HMB is a metabolite of the branch chain amino acid “L-Leucine.” The B.C.A.A’s are some of the most important amino acids for building muscle tissue. Pro Line’s HMB 1000 contains 1000mg of Hydroxy Methylbutyrate (HMB) it is well researched and safe to use, it has been shown to preserve muscle mass by minimizing protein breakdown, and damage to muscles after intense exercise. Also contributes to reduced body fat.
HOW DOES HMB HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
HMB is anti-catabolic (prevents muscle breakdown). Since the tendency of the body is always to consume muscle before fat, and muscle burns fat, preserving and building muscle helps to create lean body mass. Along with Vitamin C, and other nutrients (eg.Magnesium, Siberian Ginseng, Vitamin B-5) HMB can lower cortisol levels in the blood. Cortisol, a hormone released by the adrenal glands, is elevated by stress, including strenuous exercise. It causes muscular wasting,immune suppression and causes the body to store fat around the abdomen. HMB contributes to beta-oxidation (fat-burning) and increases aerobic performance by enhancing oxygen consumption.
HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO TAKE?
A university study done with athletes, showed that the participants, who used 3000mg (3 grams) per day, gained more strength, and lost more body fat than the placebo group. Only 2 capsules of Pro Line’s HMB™, twice per day, puts you into the range of clinical effectiveness. May be taken with or without food.
Pro Line’s HMB is available in 90 capsules size.
