HMB-Ca (calcium beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is a substance that your body produces naturally. It’s made when your body breaks down leucine, a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that’s essential for protein synthesis and muscle repair. Because of this, supplementing HMB-Ca is thought to help promote muscle recovery.
HMB supplements may come in a variety of forms, most commonly HMB-Ca (calcium beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate). This is a form in which HMB is bound to a monohydrated calcium salt, giving the compound more stability and allowing the body to absorb it with greater success. HMB is an inhibitor of protein degradation and a growth factor-1 (GH/IGF-1) stimulator.
What is HMB-Ca?
HMB is a substance that your body produces naturally when the body breaks down leucine, which is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of protein. HMB-Ca (calcium beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is a synthetic form of HMB in which the compound is bound to a monohydrated calcium salt, giving it better bioavailability and a reduction in toxicity.
HMB-Ca Benefits and Uses
Studies have shown that HMB-Ca may have the following benefits:
- Promotes healthy energy levels
- Promotes athletic endurance
- Supports muscle recovery
Additional Information on HMB-Ca
HMB is most often produced inside the body as a result of consuming certain foods, however it is produced in only small volumes, which is why HMB supplements are growing in popularity.
