NutraBio - HMB - 1000mg
Benefits of NutraBio HMB (1000mg) Promotes lean muscle mass. Minimizes muscle breakdown. Enhances protein synthesis. HMB is also a metabolite of the BCAA leucine and both have been shown to stimulate protein synthesis through the mTOR pathway. HMB INCREASES PROTEIN SYNTHESIS HMB stimulates protein synthesis in muscle by multiple mechanisms, including the mTOR/p70S6k pathway, which stimulates translation initiation of protein synthesis. (Many of these effects are shared with leucine; however, HMB is more potent than leucine in promoting strength gains). HMB DECREASES PROTEIN BREAKDOWN HMB decreases protein breakdown at a molecular level caused by intense training. HMB results in decreasing the key regulating components of the ubiquitin-proteasome proteolytic pathway, which results in LESS muscle loss and damage. Therefore, the increase in synthesis and decrease in breakdown result in greater gain of strength and faster recovery.
