Are you a young person looking to build muscle mass? Maybe you’re getting older and worried about losing too much lean muscle mass due to aging. In either case, there is a supplement that can help.
The International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) has recently put out a position paper on the supplement HMB. After looking over all the scientific data, they believe that HMB is safe for all ages and can enhance skeletal muscle hypertrophy, strength, and power.
HMB is able to do this by inhibiting muscle breakdown and increasing protein synthesis.
