What is HMB:
Supplement With HMB To Reduce Muscle Breakdown And Increase Power Output*
HMB burst onto the bodybuilding market in the early 1990’s, and every supplement company and their brother marketed the compound so heavily it gained a reputation as snake oil. The reviews were so varied that HMB was almost relegated to the dustbin of supplement history.
Times have changed, however, and people have once again begun to realize that, when used properly at an effective serving, HMB’s positive contributions to a muscle-sparing environment are impossible to overlook.*
HMB is a supplement for recovery, strength and endurance performance. It has been shown to speed strength and muscle mass gains in strength.
Good for ketogenic dieters who need energy who must limit carbohydrates.
HMB (β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) is an endogenous metabolite of leucine consumption, being derived from its parent amino acid through two steps of enzymatic conversion. In total, approximately 5% of leucine by weight of consumption is converted into HMB.
Once converted, HMB has been demonstrated to possess several interesting effects. In cellular assays, HMB was suggested to increase the rate of skeletal protein synthesis through the same mechanism as its parent compound, leucine – the all-important mTOR-P13K pathway that regulates the majority of muscle protein synthesis in vivo.* This mechanism has also translated into practical benefits to human muscle, as various trials have demonstrated HMB to slow the rate of skeletal muscle breakdown, increase power output over both acute (short) and chronic (long-term) trials, as well as mitigating muscle damage during high-intensity exercise.*
What is Ketosis:
Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones.
If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy.
Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets
Ketosis is a popular weight loss strategy. Low-carb eating plans include the first part of the Atkins diet and the Paleo diet, which stress proteins for fueling your body. In addition to helping your burn body fat, ketosis can make you feel less hungry. It also helps you maintain muscles.
ketosis usually kicks in after 3 or 4 days of eating less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day. That's about 3 slices of bread, a cup of low-fat fruit yogurt, or two small bananas. You can start ketosis by fasting, too.
Ketone bodies (ketones) are energy sources that are produced and burned under special metabolic conditions such as starvation and high fat (ketogenic diets).
Ketones are a super fuel that can be efficiently used by the muscles and the brain, where they generate more energy (ATP) per unit of oxygen consumed than do carbohydrates, protein, or fat.
HMB it is a powdered product not a liquid and is therefore more portable.
It may help alleviate the fatigue and lethargy some experience while making the transition from a glucose to a ketone metabolism.
From Web MD:
Some research suggests that ketogenic diets can help lower your risk of heart disease. Other studies show specific very-low-carb diets help people with metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes.
Do not take Extra Ketones if you have diabetes.

Core nutritionals HMB is a product that contains the endogenous ketone body beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB). It uses calcium BHB salts.
Core nutritionals HMB contains 1 gram of the ketone body Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) per serving and has no calories. It contains no artificial sweeteners, flavorings or colors. Consumption of Core nutritionals HMB before exercise can result in significant decreases in oxygen demand and increases in performance. Core nutritionals HMB may also heighten mental acuity and performance.
Core nutritionals HMB is excellent for ketogenic dieters who need energy but must limit carbohydrate intake. Core nutritionals HMB may also be used by individuals who consume carbohydrates to provide an additional energy source and limit exercise induced glycogen depletion. It may also be used to ease the transition into a ketogenic state. It may help alleviate the fatigue and lethargy some experience while making the transition from a glucose to a ketone metabolism. When consuming 3-4 grams a day, watch for lean body mass to increase while body fat percentage decreases.
Directions For HMB: Consume 1 scoop (1000 mg) three times per day, preferably with food. For best results, take one serving 30-60 minutes before your workout.
Warnings: Not intended for use by pregnant or nursing women or persons under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or have any medical condition, consult your doctor before use. Discontinue use and consult your doctor if any adverse reactions occur. Discontinue use 2 weeks prior to surgery. Do not exceed recommended serving. Do not use if safety seal is broken or missing.
