Health Benefits: L-Leucine is an essential amino acid. It can not be made by the body, and must be acquired through food or supplements. It has numerous health and athletic performance benefits. L-Leucine is known as one of the three branched chain amino acids (BCAA). It works with L-valine and L-isoleucine to protect and fuel the muscles. BCAA are used by body builders and other athletes to produce an anabolic effect and assist in the repair of micro tears in muscle tissue that are a normal result of exercise. L-Leucine comprises about 8% of the total amino acids counted in body protein structures, and is the 4th most concentrated amino acid in skeletal muscle tissue.
Quality Specification:The L-Leucine powder was produced according to USP quality standard. An actual batch L-Leucine powder meets or is better than the quality specification requirements.
