L-Leucine is one of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) and is unique in its ability to stimulate muscle protein synthesis (growth). In fact, L-Leucine has a much greater impact on protein synthesis (muscle growth) than any other amino acid!! L-Leucine activates a major complex in the anabolic (muscle building) pathway called mTOR. Think of mTOR as the amino acid sensor of a cell. mTOR is sensitive to L-Leucine concentration. Increased Leucine levels signal to mTOR that there is sufficient dietary protein to synthesize new muscle protein. Pure free-form L-Leucine is quickly absorbed into the blood stream, spiking blood L-Leucine levels, thereby drastically increasing intracellular Leucine concentrations and activating anabolic pathways.
|Serving size: 1 level scoop (approx. 3000mg) of Pharmaceutical Grade L-Leucine.|
Take one level scoop (approx. 3000mg) of Leucine 3 times daily with meals added to water or your pre-workout drink 20 minutes before exercise. For even greater gains, add another serving to your post workout protein shake.
