HMB is the abbreviation for ß-hydroxy-ß-methyl butyrate. This compound is naturally produced in the body – it is formed during the transformation of leucine and 2-ketoisocaproic acid. Specialists argue that many properties attributed to leucine actually originate from its metabolites, especially from HMB. Hence the growing popularity of the supplements based not on leucine or BCAA amino acids, but on HMB.
In supplementation, HMB it is primarily used to accelerate the rate of musculature development and the increase of physical performance. In addition to supporting anabolism, this compound inhibits catabolic processes and protects against damage that occurs in muscular cells as a result of an intense physical effort. Interestingly, HMB may also reduce muscle loss caused by diseases or aging. It is also credited for having numerous health-promoting properties – it has been scientifically proven that HMB increases resistance to infections, has a positive effect on the bowel condition, regulates the lipid profile, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
