Through every aspect of our company, we set product standards that meet or exceed the highest industry standards, and all of our products are backed by research and testing at top universities.
MTI was founded in 1990 by university professor Steven L. Nissen, D.V.M., Ph.D., and Naji N. Abumrad, M.D. Ultimately their research led to the discovery of beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and its effects on health and performance.
MTI's first product was HMB, now referred to as myHMB. After seven years of safety and efficacy research in animals and humans, HMB was introduced to the national market in 1995. Since then, additional studies have been conducted in adult men and women, both young and elderly. These studies led to the publication of a summary of the clinical safety data on HMB from a total of nine human clinical studies. These published results show that HMB consumption not only has no untoward effects, but also has health benefits and sets an example for the industry of a company's commitment to ensuring product safety.
Since the development of HMB, further scientific studies and innovation resulted in a new derivative of HMB, HMB free acid (branded as myHMB Clear and BetaTOR). Published studies on HMB free acid have shown that this new delivery form is safe and has numerous benefits such as a quicker delivery to the body resulting in enhanced efficacy.
With this innovative derivative of HMB, MTI collaborated with TSI Group Ltd. to co-develop a new sports nutrition product myHMB Clear + PEAK ATP. The combination was awarded the 2015 NutraIngredients' Sport and Energy Finished Product of the Year award. Research has shown that myHMB Clear + PEAK ATP has a powerful, synergistic benefit on performance gains.
MTI now exclusively holds the patent to their newest formulation myHMB + Vitamin D. While the positive effects of HMB are well known, it has only recently became apparent that another nutrient, Vitamin D, is also essential in helping muscles reach their full functional potential. Continuing research is showing that together these ingredients are essential to optimizing muscle health and function.
MTI is committed to delivering quality products and the credible scientific evidence to back those products. Learn more about our current products here.
