What is Leucine?
Leucine is an essential amino acid, which means that it cannot be synthesised by the body and therefore you need to consume it in the diet. Leucine is naturally found in high protein sources such as meat, fish and dairy. The best dietary sources are whey and casein protein. For those who training regularly there is an increased need for leucine so a supplement is recommended.
Why is leucine important for people that train?
Research has shown that Leucine is the most important of the three BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine and valine) when it comes to protein synthesis (muscle growth) and the prevention of muscle breakdown. It is also important for energy and endurance during intense training
What makes Instant Leucine better than standard Leucine powder?
Instant Leucine is soluble and mixes far better than standard leucine powder, meaning it can be added to protein shakes and other drinks without forming a layer on top and being difficult to drink. Instant Leucine is instantised using soy lecithin at less than 2%.
What are the performance benefits of Instant Leucine?
Leucine promotes protein synthesis and helps to encourage growth and repair of lean muscle. With training this can help improve power and strength and reduce recovery times. Leucine and the other BCAAs can also be used as an energy directly by the muscles meaning the can improve endurance performance.
