Does HMB really help in protein retention like anabolic steroids do?
We won't comment on anabolic steroids, but studies conducted with HMB on humans showed that those who supplemented with HMB experienced enhanced strength, greater endurance, and increased fat loss. Its ability to boost endurance alone is an incredible result. A seven week long study showed a much greater gain in muscle when a group of 28 participated in a regular weight-training program. HMB appears to increase the rate of protein being used to increase muscle growth, while decreasing the atrophy or tear down of muscle that occurs when lifting weights.
