We can make a small amount of HMB from the amino acid Leucine found in the protein we eat, but it needs to be topped up by eating HMB rich foods such as grapefruit, alfalfa and catfish.
In athletes where muscle tissue is damaged (causing soreness), repaired and built more frequently it stands to reason that we need more HMB.
Lots of research has now shown that supplementing the diet with HMB improves exercise performance by supporting muscle cell repair and adaptation.

Question: Coach; I want to gain a few pounds of muscle this next year. What can you recommend to help me out?
Answer: Get in the gym and use powerlifting as your base. I like to barbell squat, shoulder press, dead lift and occassionally bench press. This will release testosterone and increase your metabolism. Eat clean with lean meats and vegetables, milk and eggs. Sleep 8 hours a night and drink plenty of water. When I sleep I do so in a dark room and turn on a fan for circulation and to block out any extra noise. When I drink water I try to filter it and drink throughout the day to stay hydrated. You will gain that muscle if you do all of that.
