L-Leucine is the most anabolic of the amino acids and is also classed as an essential amino acid, in that we require it from either food or from supplementation and is one of the three BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids).
L-Leucine is an activator of the m-TOR pathway, which induces muscle protein synthesis. TOR, or mammalian TOR (mTOR) is a protein complex that serves a pivotal role in regulating cellular signalling, thereby aiding lean muscle mass growth and maintenance.
L- Leucine initiates a process known as leucine oxidisation, increasing the up-regulating of a number of processes that published studies suggest to be of benefit to athletes from all types of sports.
Directions For Use:
Take 5g (10 capsules) 3 times daily in-between meals. L-Leucine is also beneficial post training and pre-bedtime. If taking with a post workout shake adjust serving size to suit L-Leucine that is already provided by your shake to make 5g in total. If a minimum of 5g is already present in your shake, there is no further need to take more L-Leucine.
