WHAT IS HMB POWDER?
HMB is an abbreviation of Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate – it’s easy to see why it gets abbreviated to HMB!
HMB is an active metabolite of the Branched Chain Amino Acid, Leucine. HMB has been sold since the 1990s and has gained in popularity ever since. HMB is a popular addition to ‘all in one’ formulas, typically taken post-training.
Despite being similar, HMB and Leucine are metabolised differently. HMB is produced by the liver enzyme Ketoisocaproate. Increasing Leucine consumption would only result in modest increases in HMB levels.
BULK POWDERS™ HMB powder is of the highest purity and is made from 100% HMB powder.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does my body need leucine?
Leucine is an essential amino acid, meaning you need to obtain it from the diet as your body cannot synthesise it by itself. Leucine is also extremely beneficial to the body as it can directly stimulate MTOR and protein synthesis, which are responsible for contributing to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass. When Leucine is digested, it gets broken down into metabolites, which are responsible for different processes. HMB happens to be the specific metabolite associated with stimulating the mTOR pathway.
Why are amino acids considered essential?
Some amino acids are considered ‘essential’ as your body cannot synthesis them by itself, therefore you need to obtain them from food in your diet.Disclaimer: Implied results may vary. Individuals will respond differently. Implied results assume an appropriate nutrition and training plan.
