What is Leucine Powder?
Leucine (L-Leucine) is highly regarded as one of the most important essential amino acids. Leucine powder is an easy, convenient and effective way to increase Leucine intake, a main component of branched chain amino acids.
L-Leucine is an essential amino acid, meaning we must source it from nutrition or supplement sources as our body is unable to produce it. It is also one of the three branched chain amino acids (BCAA) alongside Isoleucine and Valine. It is the most effective amino acid in BCAA.
It is used in the biosynthesis of proteins and cannot be produced in the body so must be obtained through diet or supplementation. L-Leucine can be found in many foods such as meats, beans & dairy products.
