Support and preserve lean muscle quickly, safely, and efficiently with NOW HMB.

What is NOW HMB 500mg?

HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) is a clinically researched, naturally occurring metabolite of the Branched-Chain Amino Acid Leucine to help reduce muscle fatigue. HMB normally plays a role in the regulation of protein breakdown in the body, helping to preserve lean muscle tissue. This ingredient has grown in popularity as many brands are using it in energy drinks or as a stand-alone supplement.

Goal of NOW HMB 500mg – Energy & Recovery

NOW HMB can help maintain muscle strength and mass when combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet. NOW HMB supports the structure of muscle cells after intense exercise, helping to protect the skeletal muscle from breaking down and supporting the muscle in recovery. Unlike some supplements, which increase muscle protein synthesis, HMB helps you preserve your hard earned muscles. In addition, it may help to enhance recovery from intense exercise.

Why NOW HMB 500mg is Important

NOW HMB supplement can give the body an advantage for recovery by minimizing the amount of protein in your muscles that is broken down after exercise. This allows your muscles to be in an anabolic state longer, allowing for more potential muscle growth.

HMB (beta hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) is a metabolite of the essential amino acid leucine (one of the branched-chain amino acids).

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
