HMB (hydroxymethylbutyrate) is a bioactive food ingredient from the group of short-chain branched fatty acids, considered by some sources as a vitamin-like factor (with a similar effect to vitamins), naturally occurring – in small amounts – in food, as well as produced in the human body, in the effect of the transformation of one of the branched chain amino acids – leucine. The results of numerous studies show that supplementing the HMB diet may contribute to facilitating the development of lean body mass – through the positive effect of this compound on the accumulation of muscle proteins and the reduction of adipose tissue.
Literature sources suggest that HMB has such a course of action due to:
– activation of kinases – enzymes that act as secondary messengers of information in protein synthesis processes
– cooperation with kinases in the activation of initiation complexes, starting the stage of protein synthesis called elongation
– inactivation of catabolic enzymes that degrade muscle proteins
– activation of steroidogenesis – steroid synthesis pathway, including anabolic steroid hormones such as testosterone
influx of PPAR activity – receptors for fatty acids, stimulating the synthesis of red muscle fibers and production of many proteins involved in the transport and combustion of fatty acids.
