HMB is growing in popularity as a sports supplement due to the role it plays in preventing muscle breakdown during periods of inactivity, such as the off season or when recovering from injury. Unlike many other HMB products available, HMB 1g ensures 1,000mg of active HMB is available for utilisation by the body.

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. Leucine is used in the body to build and repair muscle tissue. Although we can increase the amount of leucine in our body through our diet, the amount of HMB we get as a consequence is miniscule.

There is growing research interest into the role that HMB plays in preventing muscle breakdown (muscle atrophy) and as a consequence its role in aiding recovery and supporting athletes during periods of inactivity.

Unlike many other HMB products available Healthspan Elite’s HMB 1g ensures 1,000mg of active HMB is available for utilisation by the body by including 1,405mg of calcium bound HMB per tablet.

For optimum benefit our nutrition experts recommend taking 3,000mg daily.
