HMB Is the leucine metabolite that has a “saving” effect on muscle mass, ie an anticatabol.
HMB activates the anabolic process m-TOR
Metabolite of Leucine
HMB from Swedish Supplements is one of our Back to basics products in capsule form. Since many substances require higher doses to work, we have developed Magnum caps, an extra large capsule that holds up to 1300mg of substance per capsule. Beta Hydroxy Beta Methylbutuyrate HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine. HMB is thus created in connection with the conversion of leucine inside the body.
HMB counteracts the breakdown of muscle tissue in such a way that the substance inhibits enzymes that have a degrading effect on your muscles.
HMB has a half-life of about 2½ hours and is then down to base levels after about nine hours. Intake of HMB should therefore take place both in connection with training, to reach the peak during the training session, and evenly spread over the day to try to have a constant high level.
