HMB (otherwise known as β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) is like the pretty girl who used to sit across from you in biology: sexy, mysterious, but most of all, pretty complex and little understood. And like that girl, the more you actually understand about this fascinating compound, the more you will like it.
HMB burst onto the bodybuilding market in the early 1990’s, and every supplement company and their brother marketed the compound so heavily it gained a reputation as snake oil. The reviews were so varied that HMB was almost relegated to the dustbin of supplement history.
Times have changed, however, and people have once again begun to realize that, when used properly at an effective serving, HMB’s positive contributions to a muscle-sparing environment are impossible to overlook.
