HMB is a perfect addition to the supplement stack for bodybuilders, weight trainers, and power-based athletes. It has been speculated by leading exercise scientists that HMB helps to prevent protein breakdown and catabolism by stabilising muscle cell membranes1. This mechanism can provide a variety of potential benefits for improving exercise performance as well as body composition. Although HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine, its conversion in the body is extremely inefficient, and supplementation is recommended to capitalise on the benefits of HMB.
