HMB (beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) is a bioactive nutrient belonging to the group of branched short-chain fatty acids, considered by some sources as a vitamin-like factor (similar to vitamins in terms of its effects), found naturally – in small quantities – in food, as well as produced by the human body as a result of the conversion of the branched-chain amino acid – leucine.
HMB (beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate) is a bioactive nutrient belonging to the group of branched short-chain fatty acids, considered by some sources as a vitamin-like factor (similar to vitamins in terms of its effects), found naturally – in small quantities – in food, as well as produced by the human body as a result of the conversion of the branched-chain amino acid – leucine. Numerous studies show that adding HMB to the diet can facilitate the development of lean body mass due to its positive influence on the storing of muscle proteins and the reduction of fat tissue.
As the literature suggests, this particular effect of HMB may be attributed to the:
- activation of kinases – enzymes which act as a second messenger of information during the protein synthesis process
- interaction with kinases during the activation of initiation complexes which trigger the elongation phase of protein synthesis
- inactivation of catabolic enzymes which destroy muscle proteins
- activation of steroidogenesis – the synthesis pathway of steroid compounds, including anabolic steroid hormones, such as testosterone
- impact on the activity of PPARs – the receptors for fatty acids, stimulating the synthesis of red muscle fibres and the production of a number of proteins responsible for the transport and burning of fatty acids.

CREATING WITH PASSION
A quarter of a century of experience in producing nutritional and dietary supplements.
One of very few modern research & development and production bases in the world, continually developed by a qualified team of specialists in the field of biotechnology, pharmacy and food technology as well as constant cooperation with the largest world authorities in sports dietetics - all this places OLIMP SPORT NUTRITION® among the top companies which not only implement but also continually develop innovative approaches to nutrition in sport.
The OLIMP SPORT NUTRITION® brand is well-known and recognizable worldwide.
We are the largest producer of dietary and nutritional supplements in Poland and a leading producer in Europe and worldwide. What sets us and our products apart from other companies which mostly deal with packaging is considerable, long-standing experience in creating, implementing and producing our own, innovative, pharmaceutical-standard recipes. OLIMP SPORT NUTRITION® products are made using the highest quality, verified and tested components. By choosing our nutritional and dietary supplements you can be certain that you use only wholesome and safe products, free from any ingredients which could in any way threaten your health.
Remember that Olimp production lines have never seen cheap, low-quality substitutes. Quality is an end in itself but also the mission which is enthusiastically carried out by Olimp Laboratories. The passion with which we work is the reason why our competitors can only dream of the level which is our daily bread and butter.
Results of scientific research in sports medicine have expressly proven the need for nutritional supplements in order to increase various elements of fitness and proper post-workout recovery. Forcing your body to do intensive exercise without protective nutrition, including proper supplements, should be considered a serious mistake which may result in damaging not only your sports results but also your health. It is considered equally dangerous to use supplements of unknown origin, which are often produced from low-quality base ingredients and in reprehensible production conditions, as they pose a serious threat to the health of sportspeople. Such preparations often do not have proper attestation, and have not been tested or admitted for sale.
The possibility of implementing suitable diet supplements should be considered not only in the context of competitive sport but in a generally healthy and active lifestyle.
Nowadays, millions of people in Poland, Europe and the whole world jog, ride a bike, swim or climb to stay healthy, fit and in good physical condition. Therefore the choice of supplement, the manufacturer and the conditions of production is an important issue.
Unfortunately, there are tremendous differences among the final supplement products available on the market, and contrary to what some "specialists" claim: one creatinine is not the same as another!
Even if the raw materials come from the same source and have the same patent logo. Storage, monitoring, multi-stage research, a series of proper production processes done in suitable conditions in accordance with GMP requirements, or the lack of these components, determine whether our supplement is of full value and safe or whether it is just a handful of white, humid powder with a high-creatinine content and microbiological contamination threatening to health. The examples may be multiplied.
Just as in competitive sport, people who exercise recreationally set their own ambitious goals, they wish to stand out from the crowd, be admired for their fitness, condition and attractiveness. Owing to proper support programmes, based on the latest tested and safe diet supplements, many people are able to gain a real breakthrough in improving their own achievements and approach a dreamed-of ideal.
Bearing in mind the constant growth of interest in nutritional support methods in sports, fitness and health training, we wish to present you some of our work, the ideas we pursue and our passions.
