HMB - Supporting Muscle Mass and Post-Workout Recovery with This Key Metabolite for Bones and Muscles


HMB, 500 mg, NOW Foods is an advanced nutritional supplement that provides an optimal blend of essential ingredients for bone, muscle, and immune system health. This product contains a concentrated dose of β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate (HMB), along with Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) and Calcium, a combination intended to support body strength and resilience, while also enhancing overall health.

HMB is a metabolite of the essential amino acid leucine, which plays a crucial role in muscle protein synthesis and prevention of protein breakdown. Supplementation with HMB is popular among athletes and bodybuilders due to its potential to promote muscle growth and regeneration, while significantly reducing muscle tissue breakdown during periods of intense physical stress.

Leucine and HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) are closely linked metabolically but have different functions and effects in the body, particularly concerning muscle metabolism and exercise adaptations.

HMB is a metabolite of leucine; approximately 5% of ingested leucine is converted to HMB in the body. The primary role of HMB is to reduce muscle protein breakdown, protecting the musculature against catabolism and facilitating muscle recovery after exercise. HMB can be produced in the body from leucine or can be administered directly through supplementation. It has been shown that HMB has beneficial effects on increasing muscle mass, strength, and performance, as well as reducing muscle breakdown and accelerating recovery after exhaustive exercises.


Vitamin D3 is essential for calcium absorption in the intestines, maintaining bone and teeth health, while supporting muscle and immune function. Adequate levels of vitamin D3 are vital for overall health and can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases, including osteoporosis, certain forms of cancer, and autoimmune diseases.

Calcium is a key mineral in building and maintaining bone and teeth health. Combined with vitamin D3, calcium plays an essential role in regulating blood pressure and supporting muscle and neuronal function.


HMB Benefits


  • Increased healthy muscle mass and muscle strength

HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) is crucial for developing and maintaining healthy muscle mass, as well as improving muscle strength. This compound activates anabolic pathways that support muscle protein synthesis, a fundamental process for muscle mass growth. By stimulating protein synthesis and reducing the rate of protein degradation, HMB facilitates a favorable environment for muscle growth and strength intensification. It is particularly effective during intense training phases when the body is subjected to increased stress, contributing to the development of a robust and resilient muscle structure.


  • Accelerated recovery after exhausting workouts

Supplementation with HMB plays an essential role in speeding up the recovery process after intense workouts. By minimizing muscle breakdown that occurs following physical exertion, HMB significantly reduces the time needed for the body to recover after physical activity. This means that athletes and active individuals can experience reduced downtime between training sessions, allowing them to return to training with improved performance capacity.


  • Reduction of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)

Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a common consequence of physical exercise, especially after unusual or particularly demanding workouts. HMB helps alleviate DOMS through its anti-inflammatory effects and its ability to reduce oxidative stress in muscle tissues. By mitigating inflammation and accelerating tissue repair, HMB allows for faster and more comfortable recovery, thereby enhancing post-workout experience and the ability to perform future exercises.


  • Supporting anabolic protein balance

Anabolic protein balance refers to a metabolic environment in which protein synthesis exceeds protein degradation, a condition essential for muscle growth. HMB promotes this anabolic protein balance by stimulating muscle protein synthesis and simultaneously inhibiting the catabolic mechanisms that break down proteins. This means that HMB helps the body maintain and build muscle mass more efficiently, even under conditions of increased metabolic stress, such as restrictive diet periods or recovery after intense workouts.


  • Protecting muscle fibers against catabolism

Muscle catabolism is a process of muscle protein degradation that can occur due to physical or nutritional stress. HMB minimizes catabolism through several mechanisms, including improving the energy efficiency of muscle cells and protecting the integrity of the cell membrane. By preventing muscle tissue degradation, HMB helps preserve muscle mass during periods of physical stress, promoting overall well-being and more efficient recovery. This protective effect ensures that investments in training and nutrition translate into sustainable and long-lasting muscle gains.
