  • $66.00

Genestra HMB Complex

HMB Complex: calcium beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate + glutamine, arginine, and BCAA
• May help support a modest improvement in exercise capacity in individuals with stable cardiovascular diseases
• Enhances muscle strength in previously untrained individuals, in combination with intense resistance training exercise
• Provides essential branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) involved in protein synthesis
• Provides 500 IU of vitamin D per serving

HMB Complex combines beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) with two amino acids (glutamine and arginine) involved in muscle protein synthesis, and three essential branched chain amino acids (BCAA); leucine, isoleucine, and valine. HMB is a leucine metabolite that is naturally formed within the body1 – a 70 kg person produces an estimated 0.2-0.4 g of HMB per day.2 HMB up-regulates protein synthesis in muscle cells, stabilizes the muscle cell membrane, and decreases skeletal muscle protein degradation.1, 3-7 When combined with regular exercise training, HMB supplementation helps to increase both lean body mass and muscle strength.8,9 HMB’s effects on muscle mass may be dependent upon vitamin D status; in elderly participants, supplementation with an HMB/arginine/lycine mixture only improved muscle strength in participants with normal serum vitamin D levels (less than 30 ng/mL).

Recommended Adult Dose: In a glass, add 250 ml of water or juice to two scoops of HMB Complex and mix. Take once daily with a meal or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Consult your healthcare practitioner for use beyond six weeks if you suffer from a cardiovascular disease. Consult your healthcare practitioner for use beyond six months.

Risk Information: Do not use if you have had a heart attack/myocardial infarction. Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medication for cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol, erectile dysfunction, and/or blood thinners, have a renal/kidney disease, are following a low protein diet, or suffer from a cardiovascular disease and are attempting an increase in physical activity. For individuals with stable cardiovascular diseases: consult your healthcare practitioner if your cardiovascular condition worsens. Some people may experience gastrointestinal discomfort.
