HMB & Creatine

For any form of exercise you need to fuel your body with sufficient levels of energy. Whether it is high intensity or endurance training, energy and muscle stores deplete rapidly during exercise so it’s important to saturate levels pre-workout and replenish them post-workout. This is why some gym goers opt to take additional supplements in their regime to support their workout.

How does HMB work?

If muscle growth is your aim, then you need to ensure that the rate of protein synthesis is always higher than the rate of protein breakdown. Breakdown leads to a muscle loss, when you are looking for a muscle gain, you need protein synthesis to be stimulated. Protein synthesis requires high protein levels.

HMB for Bodybuilding

Your body can naturally produce HMB, but only when the essential, branched chain amino acid, leucine is present. When leucine is available in the body, a part of it tends to be metabolised into HMB. Although, HMB can be produced in the body, leucine can’t – this means you have to source leucine in your diet through foods such as meat, fish and eggs. The higher your leucine levels are, the more HMB is produced. And, of course, the higher your protein levels are, the more energy available to burn during exercise and support muscle development and growth.

What is HMB?

Leucine is an essential ‘branched chain amino acid’ which your body can’t produce naturally. We source BCAAs, inclusive of leucine, in foods like meat and fish, and additional supplements. However, when leucine is present in the body, a portion of it is naturally metabolised into the metabolite acid HMB – also known as beta-hydroxy-beta-methyl-butyrate.
