Hello,

I was reading up a bit on HMB and one of the more commonly referenced benefits is that is decreases the catabolism and breakdown of protein and skeletal muscle tissue during strenuos exercise:

"HMB has a pronounced effect on decreasing the protein breakdown induced by resistance training along with increasing nitrogen retention by the body, resulting in a subsequent increase in lean muscle mass and strength." SciFits product description.

Now, I thought that the result of working out was to create small tears throughout the muscle fibers or in effect "damage" the muscle. The subsequent protein intake and healing, of course causing the muscle to grow and strengthen.

Wouldn't inhibiting the muscle breakdown during lifting have detrimental effects on the flipside, meaning healing and growth?

I haven't heard anything about HMB in probably 8-10 years since it was shunned as being a bunk supplement by the bodybuilding community ages ago. It was heavily touted back in the mid 90s as the "great new thing" for muscle building, but when the results failed to live up to the expectations it pretty much disappeared. I haven't heard anything about it since that time, but I suppose that some companies now may be trying to revive it again.

I tried one cycle of it, to no noticeable results.

The reviews are far too mixed for me to commit to it again. What you said is interesting, however. I had no idea this stuff had a history.
