WHAT IS HMB? (β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate)

HMB is an active metabolite of leucine that helps to support muscle protein synthesis and reduce muscle protein degradation.1

  • High-protein ONS with HMB have been associated with:2-6

  • slowed or reversed muscle loss in aging, illness, or starvation;
  • improvements in wound healing, physical function, and mortality.

WHERE IS IT FOUND?

HMB is found in small amounts in some foods but is very difficult to get from diet alone.1

  • Consider this:

  • To obtain 3 g of HMB from dietary sources, one would need to eat ~600 grams of high-leucine protein sources, such as 110 eggs!1

HOW HAS IT BEEN STUDIED?

HMB supplementation has been extensively studied since 1990 to conclude that HMB supports muscle health in a variety of populations.7
