Achieve a Positive Nitrogen Balance & Build Lean Muscle
LEUCINE activates an anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway that stimulates muscle protein synthesis. By increasing LEUCINE consumption, the mTOR pathway is signalled and protein synthesis is increased. No single ingredient has the pure, unadulterated anabolic power that LEUCINE does. Simply stated, LEUCINE is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance and building lean muscle mass.*
LEUCINE – A Concentrated Amino Acid
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 protein synthesis and for preserving lean muscle tissue. LEUCINE is one of the most concentrated amino acids within the skeletal muscle tissue.
