HMB MEGA CAPS® food supplement in capsule - contains ß-hydroxy-ß-methylbutyrate calcium.

HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is a metabolite of the branched amino acid: "Leucine" and is also found in the food chain.

(Certain plants and plant products such as corncobs, fish and grapefruit contain them).

HMB decreases protein breakdown due to intensive exercise, which limits the destruction of muscle cells. It minimizes muscle damage, repairs and strengthens the cell membrane, stimulating the development of new muscles.

Among other things, this role of protection and anti-catabolism during the efforts, it also accelerates the muscular growth during the phases of rest.

This molecule was discovered by Dr. Steve Nissen who patented the molecule as a dietary supplement, or many scientific studies subsequently confirmed his hypothesis.

According to these same studies, it is considered that three grams of HMB a day could help counteract muscle catabolism, improve endurance and fiber repair.

Originally, HMB is a supplement used in medicine to improve the recovery of patients after surgery and to treat burn victims.

It can be produced by the body itself from the leucine ingested.

Its effects:

-Accelerates mass gain and strength 

-Favor the loss of fatty tissue

-Improve muscle recovery

-Lutter against catabolism

-Stimulates the production of collagen (Collagen is a protein widely used for skin, cartilage, tendons and ligaments.) It ensures the regeneration and elasticity of these tissues.

-Faster healing of muscle tissue

Simultaneous intake of Creatine and HMB provides superior results to the combined results of these two products taken separately.
