What is Leucine?
L Leucine is one of nine essential amino acids, meaning that it cannot be made by the body and therefore is required in the diet, usually through consuming a protein source such as chicken, fish or a protein shake. It is also one of the three essential amino acids which fall into the group known as branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs and in particularly leucine play a key role in protein synthesis (muscle growth) and the prevention of muscle breakdown. Our leucine tablets provide 1000mg of this premium quality BCAA in the L Leucine form.
Who should use Leucine Tablets?
Leucine is ideal for anyone who trains regularly, particularly those looking to build quality muscle and increase strength and power. Due to leucine's role in protein synthesis it can help to speed the recovery and growth of lean muscle.
Why choose leucine tablets over leucine powder?
Leucine is a highly effective supplement in both powder and tablet format. In powder form leucine is not fully soluble and doesn't mix well with water or protein shakes, therefore some people find a tablet form easier and more convenient to take.
What are the performance benefits of leucine?
Although leucine's major benefits are for muscle repair and recovery which will generally take place during rest, it does have some direct performance benefits. During exercise leucine can be used directly by the muscle as an energy source and can therefore improve performance in prolonged exercise. Furthermore leucine can promote glucose uptake to increase glycogen replenishment making it a great choice for endurance athletes.
How should I use Leucine Tablets?
Each leucine tablet provides 1000mg of L Leucine. It is recommended to take 3-5 tablets 2-4 times per day. Leucine is best taken before during and after training, but can be taken any time of day to increase your leucine intake.
