Leucine 400 is a very anabolic food supplement which can help with the repair and growth of muscle tissue. As a result of overtraining, undereating, extreme high training intensity or due to an advanced age, your body may need more leucine. Leucine can even by itself increase muscle protein synthesis up to 70%!
Besides aiding muscle repair and growth, leucine is also important for testosterone synthesis. Leucine is a very simple yet very effective legal anabolic food supplement: inexpensive and safe.
A couple of grams of leucine boosts the growth stimulus that protein-rich meals provide to muscle tissue. At least, in elderly people, according to American scientists in the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Leucine is more than an essential fatty acid that your body needs to build up muscle tissue. Research has shown that it also has a signalling function. Meals or supplements containing high amounts of leucine increase the production of insulin and stimulate the molecular machinery that muscle cells use to build up muscle fibre.
If you add leucine to a protein-rich meal, elderly people build up more muscle protein as a result, French researchers reported three years ago. Good news for older power athletes.
