Blonyx HMB+ Creatine
After my first two weeks of taking HMB & Creatine I’ve noticed a big difference in the way my body has felt during my workouts and the next morning. After months of being out of the gym and off the ice I thought getting back into it would take months. The combination of the two has helped to speed up not only my recovery time but has taken the soreness and fatigue that come from not lifting for a long period of time.
I have also noticed a major difference on ice, my legs don’t build up with lactic acid as fast and I’ve been able to push myself harder for longer periods of time.
I’ve enjoyed using the product so far, first time using creatine. Have noticed a difference!
I like it. Noticing I feel better recovery wise while using. Doesn’t dissolve that great in cold liquids.
A clean product
HMB+ Creatine contains 3g/day of HMB, and 5g/day of Creatine Monohydrate. It doesn’t contain additives, fillers or anything else you don’t need.View the full label
Built for strength
Both HMB and Creatine are shown to increase strength with training. When taken together they have a significant impact in strength focused athletesView a research snapshot
Ridiculously well researched
We don’t settle for lab or animal studies. Both HMB and Creatine have been tested on training adults in published research studies. Lots of them!Read the research
Physiological functionBoth HMB and Creatine exist in your body naturally. HMB is vital to the health of your muscles where it is used to build, maintain and repair muscle cells. Creatine is stored in the muscle and acts as a very rapid, but limited source of energy for very high intensity muscle contractions.
Where your body gets creatine from:
Where your body gets HMB from:
Creatine adds body water weight. This can be good for strength athletes, but can inhibit athletes working on body weight movements, speed or endurance. (20)
HMB+ Creatine is for:
Athletes working on speed
Cyclists working on sprint power
CrossFitters working on olympic lifting
Sports athletes wanting to increase power
Athletes wanting to add muscle
Sprinters wanting more acceleration
How does HMB+ Creatine work?
HMB makes your muscles more efficient:
HMB is thought to work by slowing muscle protein breakdown and speeding protein production in muscle. This has a protective effect, reducing exercise induced damage. The outcome is you need less recovery time and will adapt to training more quickly. (18)
Creatine gives you explosive power:
Creatine is thought to work by increasing the body's store of Creatine-Phosphate (CR-P). CR-P provides energy rapidly when doing high intensity explosive movements such as a clean, a snatch or a sprint start. (21)
