Metabolic Technologies, LLC is a research-driven company dedicated to the development of credible, safe, and effective nutritional ingredients such as the myHMB® line of muscle health products.
Through every aspect of our company, we assure that our products meet or exceed the highest industry standards by ensuring all ingredients are backed by research and tested at top institutions.
Metabolic Technologies was founded in 1990 by university professors 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.
Metabolic Technologies’ first product HMB, now rebranded as myHMB®, has been a prime example of commitment to ingredient innovation and efficacy. After seven years of safety and 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 showed that HMB consumption not only has no untoward effects, but also has health benefits and sets the very highest standards of quality. Since that time more than 50 additional studies have been conducted using Metabolic Technologies’ HMB ingredients.
These continuing studies have furthered development of the HMB product line, and this innovative research resulted in a new delivery form 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, new delivery form of HMB, Metabolic Technologies collaborated with TSI Group Ltd. to co-develop a new sports nutrition combination, 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.
Metabolic Technologies also exclusively holds the patent to their newest formulation, myHMB® + Vitamin D. While the positive effects of HMB are well known, it has only recently become 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.
