"Beta-Hydroxy methylbutyric is a component or metabolite of the branch chain amino acid Leucine. Now Leucine , isoleucine they're your branch chain amino acids, a large percentage of your muscles is made up of them. So taking metabolite of the Leucine is good, some studies have shown that it actually aids in lean body mass gain. In the amounts you need to take and the cost, I don't know if it actually pays to do so. I'm not saying it's a bad product at all, it's actually very good. We have branch chain amino acids in 2 of the 3 products, being the whey protein as well as the muscle insurance, so if you want to just take the main component being the Leucine instead of just a metabolite of it, that's fine. In terms of HMB some of the studies do show that it actually works better for people that are untrained or deconditioned, not an elite level athlete. So that being said, for a lot of my athletes I work with, I mean I don't recommend a specific HMB supplement. I would recommend a branch chain which you get an ample amount of Leucine. I mean in the muscle insurance, if you get the muscles insurance you're going to get a 1,000 grams of Leucine, per serving. "
