Creatine has been linked to increased strength, power, and the size of lean muscle mass. Transparent Labs’ Creatine HMB puts a spin on the established supplement of creatine monohydrate alone. It combines high-quality creatine monohydrate with B-Hydroxy B-Methylbutyrate (HMB) and BioPerine, which claims to result in increased strength, stamina, muscular anabolism, recovery, and to support muscle retention.
HMB is produced in the body naturally in very small amounts when it metabolizes the amino acid leucine. When added to the body via a supplement, it functions as an anti-catabolic and retains muscle by preventing the breakdown of proteins in the muscle. Transparent Labs’ combination of this effective ingredient with creatine and Bioperine results in a product that is uniquely formulated to both produce muscular size and to prevent muscular breakdown. What’s more, Bioperine, a black pepper extract, aids in the body’s absorption of creatine.
Available in 10 fruit flavors as well as an unflavored variety, there is enough variety for most people. It also does not contain a stimulant, which might be missed by those looking for a pre-workout boost.
