HMB 3.0

HMB (Calcium beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) is a metabolite of the anabolic amino acid L-leucine. HMB is an effective, natural muscle builder when combined with high intensity exercise. HMB 3.0 was specifically formulated to allow you to train harder than before, recover better, and build muscle quicker.

Effective supplementation of HMB tends to be at 3g daily for the purpose of reducing muscle mass loss over time by suppressing genes and enzymes that promote the breakdown of muscle proteins (anti-catabolic). HMB is said to be 20-fold more potent than leucine for this purpose, it is seen as equivalent to 20-60g of leucine supplementation. One human study performed by Nissen et al. used a 3-gram daily dose of HMB versus a placebo, the HMB group showed decreased muscle damage and protein degradation, an 18.4% increase in total weight lifted, and a 2.64 lb gain in lean body mass versus a placebo in only three weeks!

Tart Cherry Extract 10:1 has numerous studies showing its ability to increase recovery rates, reduce muscle soreness, and help support strength levels during recovery. Researchers have concluded that Tart Cherry Extract 10:1 improves recovery of isometric muscle strength after an intensive workout due to a reduction in delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). One theory proposed is that the high levels of polyphenols (including flavonoids and anthocyanins) found in Tart Cherry Extract 10:1 helped lessen the oxidative damage induced by the exercise.

HMB 3.0 was strategically formulated with Vitamin D for several reasons. Researchers have found that HMB and Vitamin D improved muscle function in adults, even without exercise by both stimulating protein synthesis and reducing muscle breakdown. A 2014 human study published in The Journal Cytokine titled “Vitamin D sufficiency associates with an increase in anti-inflammatory cytokines after intense exercise in humans” concluded that Vitamin D sufficiency increases the anti-inflammatory cytokine response to muscular injury. Two further human studies concluded that supplemental Vitamin D enhanced the recovery of skeletal muscle strength following intense exercise and promoted faster recovery of skeletal muscle strength after muscular injury.
