Muscle Protect with HMB
Muscle Protect with HMB® by Douglas Laboratories provides a great-tasting, leucine-rich blend of essential amino acids combined with HMB®, vitamin D3, and glutamine for muscle maintenance.
Leucine, a branched-chain amino acid, has an anabolic role in muscle protein synthesis and may specifically benefit aging adults by preserving healthy muscle mass and function. β-Hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) is a metabolite of leucine that supports lean muscle mass through two unique mechanisms: decreased muscle degradation and increased protein synthesis. Vitamin D and glutamine provide additional support for muscle health.
- Supports healthy muscle mass and muscle function
- Provides anabolic muscle-building support
- Attenuates muscle protein breakdown and preserves lean muscle mass in both young and older adults
Maintaining skeletal muscle mass and function is important for sustaining health throughout the lifespan. Among the blood amino acids, the essential amino acids (EAAs) are primarily responsible for the regulation of muscle protein synthesis, and among them, leucine has an important role in the regulation of muscle protein synthesis.
Calcium β-Hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate-monohydrate (HMB) is a metabolite of leucine that decreases protein breakdown after a resistance workout by disrupting the ubiquitin proteasome proteolytic pathway. Several studies have indicated that HMB also stimulates protein synthesis through the activation of the mTOR pathway.
