The HMB supplement primarily has a positive effect on muscle building and thus counteracts muscle loss. Particular mechanisms of action of HMB have been identified primarily in studies in the USA. It was determined that HMB can support muscle development after a hard workout. This is possible because HMB ensures that protein breakdown in the muscle is slowed down. Therefore, HMB in combination with training or hard physical work is well suited to prevent muscle loss and to increase strength. HMB is also said to have other positive effects, for example the lowering of LDL cholesterol and blood pressure. In addition, it is said to be responsible for stimulating effects on the immune system.
