  • Can HMB really help prevent breakdown of muscle tissue.

    Bill M., From: California :

    Can HMB really help prevent breakdown of muscle tissue after an intense workout? I am a 47-year-old endurance cyclist and I continue to have a problem with my left quad. Would taking HMB help in the healing process? I am 5'10" and weigh 140 lb. I'm not worried about some weight gain. I'm too thin as it is. Would HMB also help me lose some nagging fat around my middle as I increase muscle mass? What other products would you recommend for fat loss and muscle gain? I start back to the gym in Oct. when my racing season ends.

    Some studies have indicated HMB may reduce muscle damage in strength athletes and one study indicated the same for distance runners. Although these studies seem to be well designed, they all come from a group at Iowa State Univ. that also holds the patent. Many experts are reserving judgment until more studies are done. However, HMB doesn't seem to be harmful, so you can give it a try for help in muscle building and injury prevention, if you want. Don't expect it to heal an existing injury. If your quad still hurts, see a doctor. Take this time when you are doing less endurance exercise to build yourself up with weight training and a calorie-dense, nutrient-dense diet (eat more but not junk). A good protein powder may help.


    That's it for this time,
