Leucine is a branched-chain amino acid that activates the mTOR pathway to activate protein synthesis. This allows the body to achieve a positive nitrogen and balance and helps build and preserve precious muscle mass.
Although Leucine is found in foods like chicken and fish, it can be difficult to acquire adequate amounts of this BCAA. Leucine, along with Isoleucine and Valine, make up branched chain amino acids. Finding enough Leucine through diet or supplements is essential, because without adequate amounts, the body doesn’t make use of all the protein being consumed.
Supplementing with Allmax Nutrition L-Leucine is especially helpful for post-workout recovery.
Allmax Nutrition recommends taking one serving of Leucine 2 times per day. One of those servings should be immediately post-workout. This bottle will last you 40 days then.
