MyHMB is an innovative muscle health ingredient that can benefit people of all ages and activity levels.

Scientifically known as HMB or beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate – is one of the most efficient nutritional aids for maintaining muscle mass. While many ingredients simply work to increase muscle protein synthesis, HMB is unique in its dual mechanism of simultaneously increasing muscle protein synthesis while also reducing muscle protein breakdown.

HMB is produced naturally in our bodies during the metabolism of the essential amino acid leucine. While many of HMB’s beneficial effects are shared with leucine, HMB offers more potent muscle retention and recovery benefits because of the additional effect it has on decreasing protein breakdown. These effects have been shown to produce increases in strength, improvement in endurance, and aid in recovery from exercise/activity.

MyHMB has also been clinically shown to:

  • Boost protein synthesis (Eley et al., 2007)
  • Reduce protein breakdown (Smith et al., 2005)
  • Reduce muscle damage (Nissen et al., 1996)
  • Improve body composition (Wilson et al., 2014)
  • Improve strength gains from resistance training (Nissen and Sharp, 2003)
  • Improve recovery by reducing damage associated with exercise (both resistance and endurance) (Knitter et al., 2000; Jówko et al., 2001)
  • Improve endurance by increasing maximal oxygen consumption (Lamboley et al., 2007)
  • Improve endurance by lengthening the time to the onset of blood lactate accumulation (Vukovich and Dreifort, 2001)
  • Improve anabolic effects of plant-based protein (Rittig, et al. 2016)
