Positive Nod for HMB for Sport Nutrition by International Society of Sports Nutrition

February 20, 2013

HMB can enhance the recovery of skeletal muscle damage in both trained and untrained individuals.

In a review published in February, the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) says beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) can indeed enhance the recovery of skeletal muscle damage in both trained and untrained individuals. The news was reported by HMB ingredients supplier Metabolic Technologies Inc. (MTI; Ames, IA).

In the review, researchers examined 82 studies on HMB efficacy, dosing, safety, and mechanisms of action. HMB has been shown to improve muscle hypertrophy, strength, and power when combined with high-intensity training. MTI says a dose of 38 mg per kg of body weight shows optimal results.
