Hydrate and Increase Muscle Mass at the Same Time?  Here’s How!

Hydrate and Increase Muscle Mass at the Same Time? Here’s How!

We all know the importance of hydration. For years, health and wellness enthusiasts have been touting the benefits:

  1. Increases energy levels and brain function
  2. Prevention of headaches and hangovers
  3. Aiding digestion and removing waste
  4. Improved joint health

The list goes on. Water is essential for every cell, tissue and organ in the body.  The Mayo Clinic says women need about 11 cups a day and men need 15! That can be a lot of work, not too mention our other daily health and nutrition targets.

What if water provided even more benefits?  Like increased muscle mass!

According to WebMD, “physically inactive people can lose as much as 3 to 5% of their muscle mass each decade after age 30.” Furthermore, “muscle loss accelerates after age 40 and continues to accelerate until 35–40% of total muscle mass and 20-40% of strength is lost by age 80,” according to research from Muscle, Ligaments, and Tendons Journal.

Depressing statistics.

I was lucky enough however to stumble upon a new spring water clinically proven to increase muscle strength and recovery and decrease muscle loss.  Sounds too good to be true, but listen to the science behind Nirvana HMB.


Beta-Hydroxy-Beta-Methylbutyrate (HMB) is a naturally-produced substance in your body that supports muscle health. It is derived from the metabolism of the essential amino acid leucine.

Young or old, your body is producing muscle protein and breaking down muscle protein. As we age, the rate of muscle protein breakdown begins to overtake the rate of muscle protein production. HMB slows that rate of breakdown, but it’s produced in your body in precious amounts and depletes after exercise and as you age.

HMB (β-hydroxy β-methylbutyrate) has been clinically proven to:

  1. Enhance Athletic Performance
  2. Boost Muscle Performance
  3. Reduce Muscle Recovery Time
  4. Slow Muscle Degradation

Nirvana’s first patented myHMB® Clear product line available on the market so now you can hydrate and create longevity at the same time!

Conscious Consumerism

Nirvana‘s commitment to sustainability is part of its daily practice of self-love. Located on 1,700 acres of protected wilderness in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, Nirvana‘s water flows from five fresh water springs and is bottled on-site, untouched by human hands. Nirvana‘s water is not sourced, tanked or shipped, nor are its bottles.

Nirvana was also recently named the official water of Wanderlust, a vibrant, active global community of individuals passionate about finding their best selves. “With Nirvana‘s focus on wellness and sustainability, it echoes our core values and those of the community we serve,” says Sean Hoess, Chief Executive Officer of Wanderlust.
