HMB, or Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate, is a metabolite of the branched-chain amino acid leucine.
Branched-chain amino acids, also know as BCAAs, consist of L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine, these are three of the nine essential amino acids. About 35% of muscle protein is comprised of BCAAs, so it is important to have enough available in your body when you are trying to gain and/or maintain muscle.
The human body is said to produce about 0.2-0.4g of HMB per day; supplementation of such can help individuals achieve the recommended daily dose of between 1.5-3g, which studies suggest can contribute to improved strength, muscle growth and recovery. To achieve maximum benefits, taking two, separate doses (to equal the above) is usually advocated. Reflex HMB is available in capsule format for convenient use
