HMB+ Creatine is a high quality, clean, paleo friendly supplement that speeds strength development and muscle repair in training athletes. It is made to be simple, additive free and easy to understand while also being safe to take and independently shown to be effective.
HMB is important in muscle health. It is stored in the muscles and used to build, maintain and repair muscle cells.
Creatine is stored in the muscle and acts as a very rapid, but limited source of energy for very high intensity muscle contractions.
The body makes HMB by breaking down the amino acid leucine found in the protein we eat. Only about 5% of leucine is turned into HMB.
The HMB made by the body is topped up with HMB found in food. Some foods, like alfalfa, fish and grapefruit, contain higher amounts of HMB.
Research shows that supplementing the diet with an additional 3g/day HMB improves athletic performance in training athletes.
The body makes creatine in the liver, kidneys, and the pancreas by breaking down the amino acids glycine and arginine found in dietary protein.
We top up this creatine with that found in the food we eat. Red meat as well as certain fish, like herring, are high in creatine.
Research shows that taking 3-5g/day of creatine increases strength and muscle mass in training athletes.
HMB and creatine both increase strength when training involves movements like deadlifts, squats and bench press.
The HMB in HMB+ Creatine improves endurance performance in athletes running, and cycling.
Both HMB and creatine speed muscle mass gains with training.
Creatine adds body water weight. This can be good for strength athletes, but can inhibit athletes working on body weight movements, speed or endurance.
HMB reduces the recovery time required between training sessions through decreasing muscle damage from training.
Both HMB and creatine have been shown to have a series of health benefits.
HMB is thought to work by slowing muscle protein breakdown and speeding protein production in muscle. This has a protective effect, reducing exercise induced damage, and also speeds recovery and adaptation.
Creatine is thought to work by increasing the body's store of Creatine-Phosphate (CR-P). CR-P provides energy rapidly when doing high intensity explosive movements such as a clean, a snatch or a sprint start.
HMB+ CREATINE IS FOR:
- Weight lifters not currently cutting weight
