EAS HMB Supplement Review
Benefits and Side Effects
Now this is a different type of supplement... Anti-Catabolic, as
opposed to Anabolic!
What is it?
That's simple... beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate! Easy enough... any more
questions? Its actually a metabolite of leucine. (an amino acid) It's
naturally present in foods such as catfish and grapefruit.
It is our goal to build more muscle. But to get more muscle, it is essential to
understand the basic processes involved in gaining muscle. It makes sense that to
get more muscle, you should BUILD MORE MUSCLE! Obviously! However, it is not
as well known that the body naturally breaks down muscle during the last half of sleep at
night, as well as throughout the day if we don't consume protein frequently enough!
This is done to keep the body in homeostasis. (balance) This is great for the normal
sedentary person because he/she doesn't want to gain muscle, but this poses a problem for
natural bodybuilders! It holds that we could be more muscular if we could minimise
muscle breakdown, and thus our NET gains would be greater!
What does it do?
Benefits: It helps to increase protein metabolism, (use of protein to build muscle) and to reduce
the natural breakdown of muscle tissue (catabolism - Natural process, but the worst enemy
of a natural bodybuilder!)
It can theoretically be successfully used during a cutting-up cycle.
Because of it's muscle-sparing (anti-catabolic) effects, it allows us to shed fat, while
maintaining precious muscle!
Is it safe?
YES! What, no downside? That's right, so far, there are absolutely no
reported side effects, or safety concerns. In fact, it is classified as a dietary
supplement because it is derived from food. Tests were even performed on lab rats
which were administered HIGH doses of this stuff. Nope, no adverse effects, but
please, follow appropriate doses!
What are the appropriate doses?
For most people, 3gm's a day. Divided into 3 servings with meals. For larger
people, 200lbs+ might require a little more, but a 110lb woman might only need 2gm.
What's the catch?
Well, price! It is more expensive to manufacture than say creatine, and not too many
places can manufacture HMB, so of course, that cost gets passed along to you! Also,
illegal in some European locations I believe! It's cheaper in North America, but
still not a bargain by any means.

I've used HMB, and the results are indeed subtle. There has been a lot of
talk recently as to whether of not HMB even works at all! My honest opinion is that
for the results that it provides (if any) are not worth the price, as this money could be
better spent on additional protein powder, quality food, antioxidants, vitamins, taking a
loved one out for a nice meal or even putting it away for safe keeping. (almost
