Body Ripped HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid Leucine. It is formulated to help athletes prevent muscle protein breakdown and aid in the reduction of the rate muscle is lost. University studies have shown that when highly trained athletes supplement their diets with HMB, they gain significantly more lean mass and strength than athletes using a placebo. Scientists believe that HMB may produce an anti-catabolic effect by suppressing protein breakdown that follows intensive exercise. By reducing muscle tissue breakdown, HMB may reduce recovery time and increase your muscle-building results. Two studies have also now shown that HMB may help accelerate fat loss that occurs secondary to strenuous exercise. Athletes are now using HMB to reduce muscle soreness, speed recovery, and boost muscle growth. For best muscle-building results, use Body Ripped HMB on a daily basis, for a minimum of 4 weeks.
Supplementation with HMB has been shown to minimise muscle breakdown, especially in a dieting phase when calories are low but may also aid in an improved rate of muscle growth during a calorie surplus phase as well. Utilising HMB to supplement your training is best suited to phases of calorie restriction due to its high anti-catabolic effects, which will allow more muscle retention to occur and an optimal body composition can be achieved.
