    IMO don't waste your time. I've taken massive doses (10-15g a day) for extended periods of time when I got it cheap from BN and got nothing out of it.

    Stick with BCAAs.

    Check out these studies, HMB is not something we should be wasting our money on


    HMB: no effect in human trial

    HMB has virtually no effect, says meta study

    I have to agree, sticking with BCAA is a better choice imho.

    And speaking of BCAA, have you checked out this insane offer:
    Limited AXcell Promotion - Free Blender Bottle

    My personal favorite taste is the Artic Berry

    After it failed in the bodybuilding/sports industry, they've been trying to make HMB happen in senior citizens by putting it in Ensure.

    It'll work great there because it's very difficult claim the product isn't panning out when you have alzheimer's. How do you even know you've been using it?

    If I remember correctly, it was initially used to prevent muscle loss/weakness in trauma victims (during the healing process) and the terminally ill.

    Eas blew it up big time. Hmb has something to do with Leucine, but i forget how. Hica is actually a supplement that may be worth trying out.
