Torq Raw Supplement – HMB is pure HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) – a metabolite of the amino acid Leucine. This means that it is a Natural bi-product of the breakdown of leucine, a constituent of normal dietary protein. Small amounts of HMB are found in certain foods like catfish, alfalfa and it is a Natural component of mother’s milk, but generally speaking it’s pretty scarce in the average diet. HMB was first discovered in the 1950’s and has been studied for several decades, but only really became popular as a sporting supplement in the mid 90’s. HMB has been found to slow down the degradation of muscle protein as well as enhance muscle gain, which means that it possesses both anti-catabolic and anabolic qualities. Early research has demonstrated that HMB supplementation lowers cholesterol and helps strengthen the immune system too.
How much do I need and when do I take it? Based on the available research, we suggest a daily dose of 3-5grams. If you are training heavily and using Torq recovery as a supplement, we suggest that you supplement with Torq HMB on your ‘rest’ days (the days you’re not using the Torq recovery product). Remember that Torq recovery contains your full complement of HMB, so it’s not necessary to supplement with Raw Torq HMB on the days you’re using this. Older athletes in particular stand to gain a lot from HMB supplementation, because the aging process hastens the loss of lean muscle mass.
