Beta-Hydroxy Beta-Methylbutyrate, or more commonly known by its abbreviation HMB, is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid leucine.
Growing in popularity since the 1990s, HMB is now widely used in many ‘all-in-one’ products. So why not try creating your own? Our HMB is made for this.
We recommend adding HMB to our Impact Whey Protein, as protein contributes to the maintenance growth and maintenance of muscle mass, or Creatine Monohydrate, with a daily intake of 3g, can increase physical performance in bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise.

Got to say this is the worst tasting supplement I've ever ingested, thought BCAA's powder was bad till I had this! It is effective though so will continue to take.
"I have been using MP HMB for a few weeks now and along with CEE, whey and BCAA's, I am making damn good progress! I don’t understand why so many people are moaning like little girls about the taste? Just spoon a bit in your mouth and wash it back with some quality H2O. Simple! It really annoys me when people moan about the taste when MP products are so reasonably price and are of extremely good quality! They are supplements designed to enhance your performance...not appease your taste buds! I will rant no more! Good stuff and I am reaping the rewards. Thanks MP"
This tastes HORRIBLE. But it will increase your strength as well as overal muscle mass. beware that you will retain a bit of water if you take it so keep your water intake up
This supplement is something that will be a steady in my supplement stack forever. Not for the taste. The taste i horrible! But it works! 2 weeks in and i stopped getting doms. Stopped completely. So far i've suffered badly from doms, even after the smallest of workouts. But once it's in my system it just stops. One of my favorite products.Goes Well With:Anything you can get down fast
I got the unflavoured pack... Defiantly NOT flavourless. Foul taste, that stays in your mouth. Going to keep going with it after reading all the good reviews about its effectiveness but I don't think I'll be buying this again.
Appears to be working, although I'm taking other supplements too. Defo less DOMS and feel stronger, all while losing body fat. The taste is awful, do not mix with your shakes. Only way I can drink this is with a tiny amount of water and strong squash and neck it back like a shot, that way you can hardly taste it.Goes Well With:A shot size amount of 50% water / 50% squash.
It's ok, seems to work. Had no scoop inside pack so difficult in judging 1g or 6th of a teaspoon. Goes Well With:Mixed it with protein powder
My regime (exercise and calorie intake) has pretty much stayed the same over the last month apart from using this supplement (3times per day as instructed), and I'd say I've noticed more muscle and less fat on me. I'm a hard gainer and this has impressed me so far.Goes Well With:instant oats, unflavored whey and creatine mono
"I'm a first time buyer on this site & ordered this and creatine on Sat 5th Sept 09 and it came on Tues 8th Sept so good shipping(i went for the cheapest to see how long it would take) will let you all know how it goes and everyone says the HMB has bad taste, It's not bad to be honest you can hardly taste anything and creatine is taste free good good!!"
"Got some the other day with great service from MP. It smells like White Gloss paint which is pretty weird but doesn't taste too bad (definately not as bad as Creatine Ethyl Ester). You need to give it a good stir to get it to mix though. Only been on the stuff for a couple of days so cant comment on the effects just yet. However, after researching the product I would say it is definately worth trying it out."
Bought the unflavoured pouch. Words can't describe how bad this tastes and how long it lingers. The powder is so fine that even getting a scoop of it gets all over your hands, which then stink for a good 10 hours. On the plus side, I have put on significant muscle mass since taking this alongside creatine and protien powder so something is working.
Not sure why everyone complains about the taste. I've been warned that it's not the best if you get unflavoured, so I made sure I ordered summer fruits. Tastes quite good if you mix it with water or even better with any berry juice. But the best thing I discovered is when you mix summer fruits HMB with Vanilla Whey Protein + water. It simply transforms into a strawberry milkshake and tastes amazing! As for the efficiency, this stuff does improve recovery time a lot. Even if you do get the occasional DOMS after a really hard workout, the muscle pain doesn't last that long (before I would suffer from pain for days after a long workout). So it's a really good product, would definitely recommend it, just make sure to get a flavoured one if you are that sensitive to taste. Another benefit is to mix it with your protein before and after training. P.S. Be careful when opening the pouch, the stuff is quite sticky, so some of it might be trapped near the plastic zip. Goes Well With:Vanilla Whey Protein; Creatine Monohydrate
The new flavours are really good! Only just got it and right away tried the Cranberry/Pomegranate flavour and I am really impressed with it. Almost no hint of the hmb taste anymore, I was expecting it to be much worse. So i checked the label of how much they had to cut it to get it to that stage. The label now reads: HMB-Ca (80%), Flavouring (Colour (Beetroot Red), Acid (Citric Acid), Sweetener (Sucralose), Natural Flavouring Substances) This means that only 62% of your powder will be pure HMB now (since only 78% of HMB-Ca is HMB in the first place). The taste reminds me more of Rasberry to be honest but its not bad at all. Mixability is also a bit improved I'd say. It dissolves 100% with a bit of stirring.
First month taking this and have just ordered the 500g bag. I Started a cut / increased cardio to 5 20 min sessions a week, with reduced calorie intake. DOMS are still there, but only slightly < tired / drained muscle feeling, no pain > as i push myself hard, but noticeably less than they would be without this. Taste is really not that bad, i mix one spoon with about 200ml water, mix it in well, and neck it all down in one go, its a but sour, but really not bad at all. No problem with this supplement as i buy this for what it does, not what it tastes like, and it does what it says it does well. My fat has reduced, muscles have tightened - as it does with the all the work and the whole cutting process in general, but my muscles are still there, commented that they look bigger / much more toned than my last cut, and HMB is the only thing i have done differently this time around. Go for it, it will be worth it, if the taste kills you, mic it in a shake with blueberries / peanut butter / whey if needed. good luck and happy gains to everyone!
Took this I have gone massive , lifts are mental gone from 40kg dumbbell press to 90kg easy to , my calves for some reason have gone huge and lower back Goes Well With:Bcaa
Don't mix it into your whey. HMB, I found, was fantastic for DOMS, but don't mix it with your whey. As soon as it arrives, smell it. Then taste it. Then be scared of it. I once tried shotting this with cod liver oil. It's got that bad of a taste. Goes Well With:Self-hate, things that already taste bad, etc
I mix with this flavored soya milk and stevia Impact Whey Protein and the taste is bearable compared to mixing it with anything else.Goes Well With:Flavoured soya milks
Good product. Gave me that effect had been expected.Goes Well With:Offered to try from myside
I can see what the product is doing, but it does taste like eating a stick of chalk. If i mix it in an electric mixer and add juice it does disguise the horrid taste, but the benefits will be told at the end of the month.
Product mixes really week, doesn't taste great on its own, I mix with my bcaa blue raspberry flavour. I'm drinking before during and after my workout! Goes Well With:Bcaa blue raspberry
