What is HMB 3000?
HMB by BioTech USA is a dietary supplement based on Hydroxymethyl butyrate, popularly known as HMB. This supplement is commonly used to avoid the muscular catabolism generated by intense sports training.
What are the properties of HMB 3000?
HMB is a metabolite of the branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) leucine. It is estimated that about 5% of leucine is transformed into HMB. However for our body to get 3g of HMB from leucine, you would have to ingest up to 60g of this amino acid.
For this reason, the best way of obtaining significant amounts of HMB is to take it as a nutritional supplement.
HMB acts as an anticatabolic agent, as its consumption avoids muscular destruction.
HMB plays an important part in the protein synthesis phase, as it stimulates the synthesis of proteins via the mTOR/p70S6k pathway, as well as increasing IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor) levels. HMB creates an enabling environment to increase muscle mass.
What to combine with HMB?
HMB can be combined with a wide range of dietary supplements, depending on the individual needs of each person.
It can be of particular interest to combine HMB with protein shakes, BCAA's, Glutamine or Creatine.
For sportspeople or athletes in definition stage, it is ideal to combine it with a thermogenic and a post-workout shake based on whey isolate.
Who is this product aimed at?
- Ideal for all types of athletes.
- Especially interesting in defining stages or during high volume workout cycles.
