|HMB and Creatine for Muscle Growth
Oct 11, 1999
I'm wondering about HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate), a supplement used by body builders and athletes for muscle-building. It's found in a product called BetaGen, among others. BetaGen also contains creatine. Is HMB helpful for building muscle or treating/preventing wasting? Any concerns? Will it hurt? Thanks for your help.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear HMB, Don't know a thing about it. Creatine does seem to help some people. Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
