Ridiculously well researched

We don’t settle for lab or animal studies. Both HMB and Creatine have been tested on training adults in published research studies. Lots of them!

Physiological function

Both HMB and Creatine exist in your body naturally. HMB is vital to the health of your muscles where it is used to build, maintain and repair muscle cells. Creatine is stored in the muscle and acts as a very rapid, but limited source of energy for very high intensity muscle contractions.

HMB source

The body naturally makes 1g/d of HMB from amino acids

We get about 0.5g/d HMB directly from foods like fish and citrus fruit

Performance improvements

HMB and creatine both increase strength when training involves movements like deadlifts, squats and bench press. (3, 6, 10, 19 )

The HMB in HMB+ Creatine improves endurance performance in athletes running, and cycling. (5, 9)

Both HMB and creatine speed muscle mass gains with training. (2, 3, 18)

Creatine adds body water weight. This can be good for strength athletes, but can inhibit athletes working on body weight movements, speed or endurance. (20)

HMB reduces the recovery time required between training sessions through decreasing muscle damage from training. (10, 12, 13)

Both HMB and creatine have been shown to have a series of health benefits. (18, 19)

HMB+ Creatine is for:

Athletes working on speed

Cyclists working on sprint power

Weightlifters

CrossFitters working on olympic lifting

Sports athletes wanting to increase power

Athletes wanting to add muscle

Sprinters wanting more acceleration

How does HMB+ Creatine work?

HMB makes your muscles more efficient:

HMB is thought to work by slowing muscle protein breakdown and speeding protein production in muscle. This has a protective effect, reducing exercise induced damage. The outcome is you need less recovery time and will adapt to training more quickly. (18)

Creatine gives you explosive power:

Creatine is thought to work by increasing the body's store of Creatine-Phosphate (CR-P). CR-P provides energy rapidly when doing high intensity explosive movements such as a clean, a snatch or a sprint start. (21)
