Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate, or more commonly known by its abbreviation HMB, is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid leucine.
Growing in popularity since the 1990s, HMB is now widely used in many ‘all-in-one’ products. So why not try creating your own? Our HMB is made for this.
We recommend adding HMB to our Impact Whey Protein, as protein contributes to the maintenance growth and maintenance of muscle mass, or Creatine Monohydrate, with a daily intake of 3g, can increase physical performance in bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise.

Add your preferred amount of water or fruit juice into our shaker. Then add 1g, shake and consume. Use 3 times daily.

Not sure why everyone complains about the taste. I've been warned that it's not the best if you get unflavoured, so I made sure I ordered summer fruits. Tastes quite good if you mix it with water or even better with any berry juice. But the best thing I discovered is when you mix summer fruits HMB with Vanilla Whey Protein + water. It simply transforms into a strawberry milkshake and tastes amazing! As for the efficiency, this stuff does improve recovery time a lot. Even if you do get the occasional DOMS after a really hard workout, the muscle pain doesn't last that long (before I would suffer from pain for days after a long workout). So it's a really good product, would definitely recommend it, just make sure to get a flavoured one if you are that sensitive to taste. Another benefit is to mix it with your protein before and after training. P.S. Be careful when opening the pouch, the stuff is quite sticky, so some of it might be trapped near the plastic zip. Goes Well With:Vanilla Whey Protein; Creatine Monohydrate
The new flavours are really good! Only just got it and right away tried the Cranberry/Pomegranate flavour and I am really impressed with it. Almost no hint of the hmb taste anymore, I was expecting it to be much worse. So i checked the label of how much they had to cut it to get it to that stage. The label now reads: HMB-Ca (80%), Flavouring (Colour (Beetroot Red), Acid (Citric Acid), Sweetener (Sucralose), Natural Flavouring Substances) This means that only 62% of your powder will be pure HMB now (since only 78% of HMB-Ca is HMB in the first place). The taste reminds me more of Rasberry to be honest but its not bad at all. Mixability is also a bit improved I'd say. It dissolves 100% with a bit of stirring.
If it was possible to rate it lower than 1 star for taste i would, absolutely VILE! Goes Well With:Battery acid
First month taking this and have just ordered the 500g bag. I Started a cut / increased cardio to 5 20 min sessions a week, with reduced calorie intake. DOMS are still there, but only slightly < tired / drained muscle feeling, no pain > as i push myself hard, but noticeably less than they would be without this. Taste is really not that bad, i mix one spoon with about 200ml water, mix it in well, and neck it all down in one go, its a but sour, but really not bad at all. No problem with this supplement as i buy this for what it does, not what it tastes like, and it does what it says it does well. My fat has reduced, muscles have tightened - as it does with the all the work and the whole cutting process in general, but my muscles are still there, commented that they look bigger / much more toned than my last cut, and HMB is the only thing i have done differently this time around. Go for it, it will be worth it, if the taste kills you, mic it in a shake with blueberries / peanut butter / whey if needed. good luck and happy gains to everyone!
Took this I have gone massive , lifts are mental gone from 40kg dumbbell press to 90kg easy to , my calves for some reason have gone huge and lower back Goes Well With:Bcaa
Don't mix it into your whey. HMB, I found, was fantastic for DOMS, but don't mix it with your whey. As soon as it arrives, smell it. Then taste it. Then be scared of it. I once tried shotting this with cod liver oil. It's got that bad of a taste. Goes Well With:Self-hate, things that already taste bad, etc
I mix with this flavored soya milk and stevia Impact Whey Protein and the taste is bearable compared to mixing it with anything else.Goes Well With:Flavoured soya milks
Good product. Gave me that effect had been expected.Goes Well With:Offered to try from myside
I can see what the product is doing, but it does taste like eating a stick of chalk. If i mix it in an electric mixer and add juice it does disguise the horrid taste, but the benefits will be told at the end of the month.
Product mixes really week, doesn't taste great on its own, I mix with my bcaa blue raspberry flavour. I'm drinking before during and after my workout! Goes Well With:Bcaa blue raspberry
Feel so much better in my self gains are coming on and recovery is good
Great tasting. Easily mixable. Not powdery compared to others. Goes Well With:Hmb
I got the unflavoured pack... Defiantly NOT flavourless. Foul taste, that stays in your mouth. Going to keep going with it after reading all the good reviews about its effectiveness but I don't think I'll be buying this again.
Appears to be working, although I'm taking other supplements too. Defo less DOMS and feel stronger, all while losing body fat. The taste is awful, do not mix with your shakes. Only way I can drink this is with a tiny amount of water and strong squash and neck it back like a shot, that way you can hardly taste it.Goes Well With:A shot size amount of 50% water / 50% squash.
It's ok, seems to work. Had no scoop inside pack so difficult in judging 1g or 6th of a teaspoon. Goes Well With:Mixed it with protein powder
Been taking for a few weeks now. No noticeable results. I find that it keeps weight, but think is down to water retention rather than anything else. Doesn't seem to help with post training soreness. The taste isn't good, but not as bad as some suggest. Taste is better than pea/brown rice protein. You get used to it after a week or so. I'd suggest you go for a smaller size if you decide to try it.You might not save money, but its better than having kilos of worth of talcum powder!Goes Well With:A mixer. Mixability is poor!
have used this product whilst dieting to lose bodyfat and found it excellent in retaining muscle mass. tastes awful who cares?!Goes Well With:Hard training and a good diet.
It always helps me get a little leaner and good for recovery. But I use a teaspoon of it 3 times a day. Can't say I notice a whole lot on 1.5g x 3 times a day. Re the taste.....add it to a little flavoured carbonated (helps it mix quicker) water in a shaker and shake. Taste practically gone.:)
I bought a bag about a month ago and have been taking on workout days. Ive been experimenting with the time taken and the results are pretty similar. Ive never really suffered with DOMs only when Ive had a long break from a particular mucle group. But as mentioned in the majority of reviews its tastes horrible, Ive been mixing it with squash and you can still make out the "taste of feet"! Its difficult to tell if there's any gains in mass as Ive been taking other products with HMB so Im torn whether to get another bag. Purchase wisely people!! Would possibly only recommend if you suffer badly with DOMs
Every one is slating the taste, I throw this in with my greens, and to be honest it's fine, maybe I'm just so used to bad tasting food that I'm amuse, it's effective and does what it says.Goes Well With:Nutri greens
