 Looking to recover faster and get stronger try HMB+Creatine by Blonyx. now in stock at front desk

1. The Basics

HMB (or β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) is needed by the body to protect and repair muscle tissue. We can make a small amount of HMB from the amino acid Leucine found in the protein we eat, but it needs to be topped up by eating HMB rich foods such as grapefruit, alfalfa and catfish.

In athletes where muscle tissue is damaged (causing soreness), repaired and built more frequently it stands to reason that we need more HMB. Lots of research has now shown that supplementing the diet with HMB improves exercise performance by supporting muscle cell repair and adaptation.

HMB is one of the most researched supplement ingredients proven to improve athletic performance right behind Creatine Monohydrate. At Blonyx we believe that athletes should only take supplements with significant human research studies, which is why we only sell products with these two well respected ingredients. (To find out more about taking HMB with Creatine (Click Here)
Both HMB and Creatine Monohydrate have been assessed by the International Society of Sports Nutrition who issued position statements on their effectiveness. They are two of a handful of supplements that have warranted a position statement to date simply because adequate human based research on other supplement ingredients is still lacking.
