HMB Mega Caps HMB Mega Caps

Olimp HMB Mega Caps is a dietary supplement containing hydroxymethylbutyrate, which is a metabolite of L-leucine. This product has strong anti-catabolic properties which help to keep muscle mass at the desired level. In addition, taking HMB has a positive effect on the body composition, because it promotes oxidation of fatty acids.

Calcium β-Hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate is a source of hydroxymethyl butyrate (HMB) combined with calcium. HMB is a by-product of L-leucine metabolism, naturally occurring in the body and increasing effectively the rate of muscle protein synthesis (MPS). However, L-leucine obtained from food is transformed into HMB to a very low extent (approx. in 5%).

HMB as an anti-catabolic agent
As a derivative of L-leucine, HMB has strong properties preventing protein degradation in skeletal muscles. Hydroxymethylbutyrate intensifies the synthesis of cholesterol in cells, thanks to which it provides them with stability and constitutes a kind of protective barrier against the activity of proteolytic enzymes. Therefore, the preparation minimizes the risk of muscle loss, which can be exacerbated, for example, by stress, excessive physical exercise or insufficient supply of proteins and nutrients.

HMB promotes anabolism
Similarly to leucine, HMB activates mTOR kinase pathways, which is the major signalling pathway enhancing MPS. It is true that this compound shows a slightly weaker effect than leucine. Nevertheless, studies have shown that people supplementing HMB achieved much higher weight gain than those taking placebo. Interestingly, it has been shown in rodent studies that taking HMB may increase the effect of insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), which also increases the rate of MPS.

HMB helps reduce fat tissue
Although HMB supplementation enhances anabolic processes and may contribute to increased calorie intake (as it increases appetite), some studies have shown that HMB supports the reduction of body fat. This substance is said to increase fatty acid oxidation during exercise, which is combined with greater muscle mass and therefore affects the body composition positively.

Faster regeneration
Taking HMB is associated with reduced muscle damage resulting from physical exercise. Few muscle injuries mean less muscle soreness, which is known to hinder everyday functioning. Thanks to this, HMB can shorten the recovery time between trainings, as well as improve the comfort of everyday functioning after intensive workouts.

HMB boosts strength
In many studies exploring anabolic properties of HMB researchers investigated also whether supplementation of this substance increases skeletal muscle strength. It has been proven that by taking HMB you can gain an extra few percent strength during resistance training, compared to the placebo group. Interestingly, by taking HMB along with ATP (adenosine triphosphate), participants acquired up to 3 times more strength than the control group.

CaHMB is contained in MegaCaps capsules – a formula developed especially by Olimp, which makes it possible to enclose the maximum dose of active substance in one capsule. Thanks to this, taking the supplement is comfortable, there is no need to take a large number of capsules and strain the digestive system.

To sum up, Olimp HMB Mega Caps is a supplement containing calcium hydroxymethylbutyrate, without any unnecessary additives. HMB effectively prevents the breakdown of skeletal muscles and reduces damage caused by training. In addition, it has been proven that taking HMB increases both muscle mass and muscle strength, meanwhile supporting the reduction of body fat. The preparation may also help to decrease muscle soreness and increase appetite.

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

HMB

Information

HMB - beta-hydroxy-beta-methyl acid, a fat derivative of leucine (endogenous amino acid) synthesized from leucine in the human body. In its natural form (unfortunately in small quantities) is available in grapefruit, alfalfa and meat of some fish. Information about special anabolic and anti-catabolic action appears to be greatly exaggerated. However, it is recommended to use HMB by untrained persons who take an physical activity, in order to ensure adaptation to exercise and protect muscle tissue during exercise exceeding the general standard. In the sports supplementation is used rarely (due to not fully confirmed action in reducing the body fat, anabolic and anti-catabolic properties).
Dosage: 3-5 g per day
