Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate, or more commonly known by its abbreviation HMB, is a metabolite of the branch chain amino acid leucine. It’s produced naturally by the body in small quantities, and only when the essential amino acid leucine is broken down, so obtaining higher levels can be difficult without the use of supplements like HMB powder.
Growing in popularity since the 1990s, HBM is now widely used in many ‘all-in-one’ products. So why not try creating your own? Our HMB is made for this – it’s 100% pure.
We recommend adding HMB to our Impact Whey Protein, as protein contributes to the maintenance growth and maintenance of muscle mass, or creatine monohydrate which can increase physical performance in bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise.

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
I got this product thinking it was going to taste so bad! But if you use the correct dose mixed with your pre and post WO sgakes its hardly even noticable!! I think some people may be not measuring correctly? As I remember I had BCAA powder a few years ago and it was un drinkable until I got the doseage correct... So please dont be put off by reviews of the horrid taste!! This stuff is like icing sugar though! In that it goes everywhere... Goes Well With:Creatine Whey protein ceasine and greek yoghurt Recovery evo
From a performance point of view, I would wholehaeartedly recommend HMB to anybody. I'm a long distance triathlete and regularly train 20+ hours per week. I have been taking 1g of HMB three times per day for almost a month. Since using HMB I have noticed some reduction in DOMS compared to before, and I have seen an improvement in my measured aerobic threshold that is unusually large for the type of training that I've been doing at this time of the year. The only negative is the flavour. Wow it tastes bad! I was originally taking it in 200-300ml of water with some Robinsons blackcurrant, and it was making me gag. I've since switched to taking it with semi skimmed milk and this has been much better. If you can get past the taste then this is a really great product.
This tastes HORRIBLE. But it will increase your strength as well as overal muscle mass. beware that you will retain a bit of water if you take it so keep your water intake up
I have never made complaints regarding taste. But this taste is ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. Haven't used it for too long - so I can't say if HMB really works for me at this stage, but again the taste is awful - I was near to throw up every time I took it.
Got to say this is the worst tasting supplement I've ever ingested, thought BCAA's powder was bad till I had this! It is effective though so will continue to take.
I've just received my 500g. bag of it and after workout I had my 1st tasty shake. I thought that it will be plastic scoop in the bag but i couldn't find one or do I need to get one other wise I can't measure exactly a gram?
