As we age our muscle mass reduces, in fact after the age of 40 it is possible that you could be losing as much as 8% of your muscle mass every 10 years. Our muscle mass can also be impacted during extended periods of illness of inactivity. HMB 500 has been formulated by Healthspan’s nutrition experts to provide your body with support.

HMB (Beta-Hydroxy-Beta-Methylbutyrate) is a by-product of the normal breakdown of the amino acid leucine, one of the building blocks of protein. Formulated by Healthspan’s nutrition experts, each tablet contains 500mg HMB with added zinc to support normal protein synthesis. Protein plays an essential role in the maintenance muscles.

HMB is a natural component of mother’s milk, which underlines the nutritional role it has to play, but it is very difficult to gain beneficial amounts solely through your diet.

HMB production is best optimised by increasing the amount of protein consumed in your diet. This is why our experts recommend that anyone taking HMB should also consider Healthspan Protein Complete milkshakes and soups.

Our experts’ recommended dose of 3 tablets daily provides 1,500mg HMB with 10mg zinc (100% RDA).
