HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) preserves muscle mass while preventing muscle breakdown, especially in older individuals of over 50 years of age.
For athletes, the recommended dose is 2mg before and immediately after training. For best results, take it on non-training days as well (3mg, either at once or split throughout the day).
For non-athletes, the recommended dosage is 3mg everyday. For best results, split up into 2-3 servings of 1g throughout the day.
