More pure muscle mass!
More effective fat tissue reduction!
HMBolon Nx® Mega Caps®/Mega Capsules® is an advanced preparation which enriches the diet with calcium beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate in the form of a carefully developed combination with arginineα-ketoglutarate and creatine malate which enhance the effect of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB).
HMB facilitates the growth of strength and lean muscle mass. Scientific research has shown that its activity increases significantly if used together with creatine and arginine. The synergism observed between these nutrients may be explained by their participation in various stages of the same metabolic pathways, resulting in the reduction of subcutaneous fat and in the storing of muscle proteins:
See the difference and the advantage of HMBolon Nx® Mega Caps®/Mega Capsules® – an amazing matrix, over other available forms of HMB:
1. HMB inhibits the activity of catabolic enzymes which destroy muscle proteins. Arginine and other free amino acids exhibit similar properties. However, HMB is particularly active in this regard, since it inhibits the most powerful enzymes, due to the methyl group found in the molecule. Arginine influences the acidity of the cellular environment, preventing the catabolic enzymes from breaking down the proteins. Creatine prevents those enzymes from penetrating muscle proteins. At the same time it eliminates free oxygen radicals – molecules which, together with enzymes, break down proteins.
2. HMB influences the production of anabolic steroid hormones as a source of isoprene units. Isoprene units are the building blocks of hormones, just as amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Creatine supplies high-energy phosphates for individual stages of this production. Hormones initiate the process of protein accumulation in muscle cells. The rate of accumulation depends on the amount of phosphates provided by creatine. Arginin delivers polyamines and cyclic nucleotides which support the functioning of anabolic steroid hormones. The production of polyamines and cyclic nucleotides also depends on the activity of creatine.
3. HMB inhibits the binding of sugars and fatty acids, i.e. the production of spare fat. Arginine facilitates the breakdown of spare fat into sugars and acids. Due to nitric acid, formed as a result of arginine conversion, sugars and facts are directed towards the burning processes in muscle cells. Such burning processes create high-energy phosphates, transported by creatine for the purposes of muscle fibre contractions and protein anabolism.
4. Arginine may be converted into creatine by the body. Such transformation requires methyl groups, found, for instance, in HMB. After the conversion of arginine into creatine, the body may use the methyl groups of HMB, probably transported between the compounds through active methionine.
5. Α-ketoglutarate (a component of arginine α-ketoglutarate), malate (a component of creatine malate) and HMB belong to a group of rare compounds whose chemical energy is immediately carried to high-energy phosphates, and subsequently delivered by creatine for the purposes of fibre contractions and protein anabolism. The activity of malate may be identical to the activity of creatine – it can independently carry phosphates for the purposes of the aforementioned processes. Α-ketoglutarate intensifies the conversion of arginine into the anabolic nitric oxide which is also responsible for the strength and endurance of fibres, together with phosphates and creatine.
How does HMBolon Nx® Mega Caps®/Mega Capsules® work?
How does HMB work?
1. It inhibits the activity of catabolic enzymes.
2. It stimulates the production of anabolic hormones.
3. It is involved in the conversion of arginine into creatine.
4. It blocks the transport of sugar for the purposes of production of spare fat.
5. It activates a strong anabolic enzyme – mTOR kinase.
6. Together with kinases, it activates initiation complexes which commence the elongation stage of protein synthesis.
7. It activates PPAR – the receptors which stimulate the synthesis of red muscle fibres and the transporting of proteins, as well as the enzymes which burn fatty acids, thus facilitating the growth of strength and lean muscle mass.
How does arginine reinforce its effects?
1. It produces polyamines which support the activity of anabolic hormones.
2. It intensifies the production of cyclic nucleotides which stimulate protein anabolism and break down of spare fat.
3. It is converted into anabolic creatine.
4. It activates SRFs – factors that work together with mTOR kinase and stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
How does creatine reinforce the effects of HMB and arginine?
A. It provides high-energy phosphates for the purposes of protein anabolism.
B. It is involved in the production of cyclic nucleotides which stimulate the protein anabolism and break down of spare fat.
C. It enables the burning of spare fat components, generating the energy necessary for the muscles to work.
D. It is necessary for the activity of anabolic enzymes (kinases) and activates the mTOR kinase which intensifies the anabolic properties of HMB and arginine.

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.
Taking care of your condition, fitness and health:
