What is Life Pro Nutrition HMB-Ca?
HMB-Ca is a supplement formulated with beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) a metabolite of the amino acid leucine.
HMB is a compound produced in the metabolism of an essential amino acid called leucine, which is part of the BCAAS or branched-chain amino acids. A metabolite is a substance that occurs naturally in the body as a result of various metabolic reactions.
In sports, HMB supplementation can be effective in reducing muscle damage and protein degradation, and consequently improving the maintenance of muscle tissue. This is due to the activation of the so-called Mtor/pk pathway. It will also benefit the recovery process following physical activity.
The form of HMB used in Life Pro Endurance HMB-CA is in the form of calcium salt. Each serving provides 2.5 grams of HMB and 435 mg (54.4% NRV*) of calcium.
