What is HMB?

HMB is an intermediate product of leucine metabolism. Leucine is an important branched-chain amino acid in the human body and one of the essential amino acids in the human body. It cannot be synthesized in the body and must be supplemented by exogenous food.

It can promote protein synthesis and reduce its breakdown, increase body strength, speed up fat consumption, and delay muscle fatigue.

What are the benefits of HMB for you?

1. Increase muscle volume, increase strength, and promote endurance growth.

2. Effectively promote fat metabolism and protect cell membrane integrity.

HMB-Ca can be used to promote muscle growth, enhance immunity, reduce cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels in the body, and also enhance the body's nitrogen-fixing ability to maintain protein levels in the body.

Under a normal diet, the body can produce about 0.25 to 1 gram of HMB in muscle per day.

About 10% of leucine in muscle can be oxidatively decomposed into HMB, and 20% of the generated HMB is excreted in urine. Only a small fraction of the HMB produced in the muscles is reserved for use by the muscles, while the vast majority is used by the rest of the body. About 30% of HMB is absorbed by muscle, which indicates that when the concentration is higher, muscle tissue will be the main site of HMB metabolism.

Application of HMB in Food

As a new food raw material that can be added to beverages, HMB can be combined with a variety of proteins, such as whey protein concentrate, milk protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, and vegetable protein, and can also be used with vitamins and minerals to increase product functionality. .

Liquid milk and milk powder added with HMB can be aimed at middle-aged and elderly people to help prevent muscle decay, and can also be used for sports and fitness people to provide healthy nutrition for muscles.

HMB can be added to the food to reduce fat.

HMB can also be used in nutritional bars and candies to reduce protein breakdown, build muscle while promoting post-workout recovery.
