MyHMB aims to inspire individuals to act. To get outside or to hit the gym, try a new recipe and step outside of your comfort zone. Through exercise, nutrition and education, we encourage taking steps toward positive health changes, to live fully and actively.
There are over 600 muscles in the human body and these muscles are responsible for all movement and support of daily living activities. Muscle is critical for our overall health and well-being.
Muscle mass peaks by about age 30, after which we normally start to lose muscle mass as we age. Muscle loss averages 0.8% per year during our 40s (about 8% per decade) and accelerates in our 70s to 1.5% per year (or 15% per decade). This translates to a loss of strength, lower energy and slower recovery after physical training or injury. It can mean more frequent injuries and even loss of physical ability and independence. At every stage of life and every level of activity, poor muscle health slows us down. Bottom line, it is vital to do all we can with nutrition and exercise to keep our healthy muscle mass and strength as we age.
That’s why we created myHMB — a family of ingredients and combinations clinically shown to improve muscle health. When muscle health improves, life can be lived to the fullest.
