HMB (Hydroxy-MetylButyrát)

Pôsobí na: rast svalov a cvičenie

HMB je aktívny metabolit leucínu, ktorý redukuje odbúravanie svalových bielkovín. Zdá sa, že vo svaloch má antikatabolickú funkciu, ale pre navodenie proteosyntézy nie je efektívnejší ako leucín.


Pre priebežné obmedzenie strát svalovej hmoty (anti-katabolická funkcia) sa užíva dávka 1-3g denne. Hovorí sa, že HMB je na tento účel 20x účinnejšie ako leucín, takže táto dávka zodpovedá približne 20-60 g leucínu. Na účely syntézy bielkovín je o niečo účinnejší leucín. Pre navodenie syntézy svalových bielkovín nie je HMB vhodné, pretože leucín je oveľa účinnejší a lacnejší. Pred tréningom je potrebné užívať HMB vo forme čistej aminokyseliny, nie ako vápenatú soľ. Na tento účel sa má HMB užiť 30-45 minút pred začiatkom cvičenia.
