Blonyx - Heidi's Review

Supplements! I have the privilege to review a great supplement that Blonyx sent me. I have been using HMB Sport. What is HMB? Here is a little clip from their site:

 "HMB Sport is a simple, naturally occurring, science backed supplement that supports muscle cell health. Using it on a regular basis results in less muscle cell damage after all forms of strenuous exercise. This leads to quicker recovery and faster muscle adaptation to your training. 

HMB Sport is made from one simple ingredient found in natural, healthy foods. It contains no additives, preservatives or fillers and is for the athlete concerned about what goes into their body. 

HMB Sport is an ideal supplement for athletes that push their bodies to extremes, such as CrossFitters, triathletes, runners, cyclists, gymnasts or sportsmen/women."

I am actually not a supplement lover, I feel very strongly about knowing what I put in my body and how it will affect me. HMB contains only natural ingredients that are paleo approved. That alone made me happy! The gelatin capsules are easy to swallow, but the capsules can be opened easily if you prefer to put it in your shake or can't swallow pills. 

The goal of HMB is recovery, by maintaining a healthy level in your body, you are able to recover quicker from intense workouts. The HMB pills can be taken 2 with every meal, or 3 with 2 meals. 

As a woman I am leery of products like this because they usually support water retention in the muscle, (which shows up on the scale) however HMB does not have that effect! 

After a month of having HMB in my system, I am less sore after workouts. I am a full time "desk-jockey" meaning, I crossfit for an hour a day and feel it all 8 hours that I sit at my desk and stiffen up. This has drastically decreased with HMB. I do get sore; just not nearly AS sore and nowhere near as long. 

I reccomend this product for anyone that does intense training, and even for those of us ladies who don't love supplements and fear the medi-bulk. You won't get that with this product.

As you can see above, you get a free shirt when you order certain amounts. I have and love my blonyx shirt. I will say they are either a men's or unisex fit, so it runs a little big for us ladies. But the tees are super soft and have BLONYX across the chest and  a cool logo on the sleeve that looks like an element; great for us science nerds!
