Where myHMB Fits In
When looking at the mobility category most consumers assume you’re referring to your joints, but really, it’s referring to the skeletal system. Bones, joints, and muscle health all play an important role. Just like other systems in the body, a weakness in one part can have a detrimental effect on the entire system.
Muscle mass peaks at the age of 30 after which we normally start to lose muscle mass as we age. If you don’t manage your muscle health earlier in life, you will lose a significant amount of muscle mass by the time you’re 80. You need muscle to help stabilize and support your joints.
This is where myHMB offers a solution. MyHMB, scientifically known as beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB), can help tip the balance in muscles favor by increasing protein synthesis while decreasing protein breakdown. Learn more about how myHMB works here.
