HMB is a nutritional supplement, the metabolite of one of the most important amino acids – leucine - which helps growth and maintenance of muscle mass. HMB has anabolic and anti-catabolic effects, protects muscle mass, promotes muscle growth and strength as well as regeneration, increases stamina and promotes fat burning. It is suitable for every type of sport.
HMB - helps to adapt physical load and improve sports performance
HMB or β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate is a branched-chain amino acid-leucine metabolite. Even though this too chemical name is not very attractive, it is of natural origin. It is formed in the muscle cell as the resulting product of the breakdown of one of the most important amino acids, leucine. This amino acid is considered the most powerful anti-catabolic amino acid in sports nutrition, which limits the formation of the catabolic hormone cortisol.
The main function and property of leucine is an increase of anabolism. HMB is a nutritional supplement that helps to adapt the human body to increased physical load. It is therefore an ideal supplement for any athlete as well as for sportsmen with high intensity training that can cause muscle pain at regular intervals. It is one of the relatively often studied nutritional supplements, which, like creatine, demonstrably improves sports performance.
How can HMB help you?
Muscles are often destroyed after intense training, which causes the breakdown of muscle fibres. HMB, a metabolite of leucine, helps preventing of protein breakdown and catabolism. Increased protein and amino acid intake after training will help to replace lost proteins and build new ones. However, HMB signals muscles to preserve the current muscles and thus also promotes muscle growth, faster muscle development and regeneration. HMB results in the build-up of muscle mass, strength and endurance.

Who is HMB designated for?
HMB from Gym Beam is a suitable nutritional supplement for athletes who participate in high-intensity training exercises that cause them muscular pain at regular intervals. They are also ideal for those who engage in sports such as bodybuilding, crossfit, gymnastics, football and endurance sports.
β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (1 capsule contains 750 mg).
We recommend consuming 3 g (4 capsules) a day, either at once (immediately after training) or divided into two doses during the day, most ideally 30 to 60 minutes before exercise, and the second dose immediately after exercising. For bodybuilders weighing more than 100 kg, the daily dose is between 5-6 g.
How to combine HMB?
Very good combination is HMB with Glutamine, which is an amino acid with a strong anti-catabolic effect. This combination has excellent protective properties for loaded muscles. However, it is often combined with Creatine, which is particularly suitable for strength-volume training.
