Genetic Supplements L-Leucine

Genetic Supplements L-Leucine


L-Leucine is the most anabolic amino acid. It is the primary activator of the mTOR pathway which is a protein complex vital to sending the signal to cells for protein synthesis. In short, L-Leucine literally signals your body to start adding muscle mass. Unfortunately, this signal only lasts for so long (irrespective of how big the signal is) and thus it must be stimulated multiple times per day in order to maximize growth. Doing this with wholefoods can be expensive and requires a lot of meals (often both time consuming and expensive) so by simply supplementing with L-Leucine in between meals can ensure your leucine levels stay elevated every 4-4.5 hours. L-Leucine supplementation can also be used alongside meals if the protein source you eat doesn’t contain a great deal (pork is surprisingly low in leucine, and many vegetarian proteins are lacking).

L-Leucine is the most anabolic of the amino acids and is also classed as an essential amino acid, in that we require it from either food or from supplementation and is one of the three BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids).

L-Leucine is an activator of the m-TOR pathway, which induces muscle protein synthesis. TOR, or mammalian TOR (mTOR) is a protein complex that serves a pivotal role in regulating cellular signalling, thereby aiding lean muscle mass growth and maintenance.

L- Leucine initiates a process known as leucine oxidisation, increasing the up-regulating of a number of processes that published studies suggest to be of benefit to athletes from all types of sports.

Directions For Use: Take 5g (10 capsules) 3 times daily in-between meals. L-Leucine is also beneficial post training and pre-bedtime. If taking with a post workout shake adjust serving size to suit L-Leucine that is already provided by your shake to make 5g in total. If a minimum of 5g is already present in your shake, there is no further need to take more L-Leucine.
