Here's one way to improve exercise performance and recovery

If you are doing heavy physical training and competition, you will be well aware that muscles and tendons ache and eventually fail.  You will also be aware of the discomfort of delayed onset muscle soreness that is worse one to two days after a hard session.

Well, there is an interesting link between the failure of muscles during intense, prolonged exercise, delayed onset of soreness and long-winded substance called Calcium B-Hydroxy B-Methylbutyrate (HMB).  If levels of these are low in the muscles, they will fail and hurt - sooner than later.  I have been experimenting with HMB (and a few other things) and have noticed a significant improvement in performance and recovery during and following intense cycle training and racing.

High levels of HMB = Longer and Faster

We have just added a new formulation of HMB to our small range of sports dietary supplements.

HMB is a naturally occurring nutrient that is found in the body.

Here's the official blurb about the product:

Balance HMB 500 provides pure Calcium B-Hydroxy B-Methylbutyrate. HMB is an important anti-catabolic supplement that has shown to support the body's ability to minimise protein breakdown and damage to muscle cells that can occur due to intensive exercise or muscle trauma.

HMB is a metabolite of the essential branch chain amino acid (BCAA) L-Leucine.

 Decrease muscle tissue damage and improve recovery.

 Promote a reduction in body fat percentage.
