I was thinking about this:
Most of the supps of HMB contain 750 mg,and :
"Recently, a study showed in a control group supplementing with HMB, that after taking 3 grams of HMB per day for three weeks..."
So,that means we have to buy 4 tubes of HMB,so that we take 3 grams and it isn´t 3 grams a day even...I might be doing the conversion to grams wrong since 750 mg is 0.75 grams I think.
Only Prolab HMB contains some grams (60) but it´s out of stock.
But is HMB worth the money?
Thread: 3 grams of HMB?

Go with Ultimate Nutrition. They have a 750mg one which is pretty cheap.
I know that Ultimate Nutrition is cheap but to make 3 grams I need to buy 4 boxes of HMB.
I don´t know if i´m converting the numbers right,since in Portugal it´s different from the US.

"Supplementation with 1.5-3.0 grams of HMB daily during weight training for 3 weeks increased muscle mass and strength and decreased the rise in exercise induced muscle damage. In one study, untrained subjects lifted weights for 4 weeks with or without 1.5 to 3 grams of HMB per day. The HMB supplements resulted in significant improvements in muscle mass and strength as well as significant decreases in muscle breakdown compared with placebo subjects. Even in trained athletes, HMB supplements of about 3 grams per day resulted in a significant increase in muscle mass and strength as well as a decrease in body fat."
You are correct, most HMB mfgs only give a maximum dosage of 750mg of HMB. This is way below the level needed to achieve results with this supplement. If you're able to find a manufacturer that sells powder HMB that has like, 1 tblspoon = 5 grams (similar to micronized glutamine) then it would be a good buy probably, otherwise - just pick up some creatine.

i use ultimate nutrion ... for the same potency and caps its about 20$ cheaper than its competitors. its by far the best to go with and it is said you see good results when taken 3-4g of hmb with 5g of creatine. so when you take hmb, take your creatine with it probably post-work out like i do. 4 caps of ultimate nutrition's caps = 3g
damn you 1fast400 .... your place is called unlimited nutrion and this is ultimate .... countless times in this thread i had to erase and re-write cause i wrote unlimited instead of ulitimateThermolife International | Driven by Excellence | When Quality Meets Innovation
