STIMULATES PROTEIN SYNTHESIS: LEUCINE activates an anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway that stimulates muscle protein synthesis. By increasing consumption, the mTOR pathway is signaled and protein synthesis is increased. No single ingredient has the pure, unadulterated anabolic power that LEUCINE does. Simply stated, it is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance and building lean muscle mass.
PRESERVES LEAN MUSCLE MASS: LEUCINE is one of the three branched chain amino acids (the other two being Isoleucine and Valine) and is extremely important. It is naturally found in nuts, brown rice, whole wheat, cottage cheese, chicken and fish. Unlike amino acids, which are metabolized in the liver, BCAAs are metabolized in the muscles and are integral for preserving lean muscle tissue. LEUCINE is one of the most concentrated amino acids within the skeletal muscle tissue.
PURE INGREDIENTS, PURE RESULTS: Our Leucine crystalline powder has zero binders, excipients, additives or preservatives. ALLMAX did not stop there; we’ve taken the highest-grade Leucine available and made it even better. In the final stage of Leucine production, the result is a coarse crystalline structure. We’ve taken the raw crystal material and microparticulated through a complex series of processes; the result, a perfect, ultra-fine white powder that has optimal absorption levels.
