What are the facts on this “new” supplement, HMB, or beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate ? In this vid, you’ll learn the facts on this supplement and know the reality from marketing BS.
NOTE: Study mentioned in this vid (Eur J Appl Physiol. 2014 Mar 6. The effects of 12 weeks of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate free acid supplementation on muscle mass, strength, and power in resistance-trained individuals: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study) used 3g of of HMB in a free acid form (HMB-FA) — the free form of HMB which may have a superior bioavailability over calcium bound HMB. However, vast majority of studies used calcium bound HMB and it’s unclear if the form used in this study was an essential factor to the results. To date, no studies have compared the two forms head to head in terms of effects on body comp, strength, etc.
