L-Leucine is a Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) responsible for building muscle tissue, preventing muscle tissue breakdown, and has a role in energy production. L-Leucine & other branch chain amino acids are important to all sports people. When taken in combination with each other they assist in the rebuilding of muscle tissue after heavy training. It also has applications in the treatment of muscle wasting & ALS, and can help to lower blood sugar levels.
INGREDIENTS: 100% pure free form L-Leucine USP.
DOSE: Take 1 level teaspoon three times a day (minimum daily requirement = 16mg/kg body weight). 1 level teaspoon = 2.5g.
Amino Acids are the chemical units or building blocks of the body that make up protein. Muscle, tendon, organ, gland, nails and hair are made up of protein substances and are dependant upon protein for growth, repair and maintenance. Amino Acids need to be included in our everyday food intake, as unlike fat, the human body does not store excess Amino Acids for later use. There are 20 different Amino Acids and each is necessary to maintain and support normal body function. Deficiencies can have detrimental effects. The body can produce 12 of the 20 Amino Acids which are referred to as Non Essential Amino Acid, the other 8 can only be gained through dietary protein intake and these are known as Essential Amino Acid, also commonly referred to as EAAs.
