What is Leucine?
BULK POWDERS™ Leucine Tablets contain a full 1000mg of leucine per tablet – i.e. the 1000mg refers to the active ingredient, not the tablet size. This means you do not need to take 8-10 tablets to get an appropriate amount of leucine; 2-4 tablets provides you with 2-4g of leucine.
We are one of the only companies packing this amount of leucine per tablet, so please check competitor products carefully, which will generally only contain 500mg leucine per capsule or tablet! Gram for gram, you will not find better value Leucine Tablets anywhere else – fact! What's more, as with all Pure Series™ products, the purity of this product is absolutely assured.
Leucine itself is an essential amino acid (EAA); this means that the body can not produce it and, as such, it needs to be obtained from the diet. Leucine is also the key branched chain amino acid (BCAA). Over the last few years, there has been a significant amount of research on the role leucine plays in triggering protein synthesis.
It is clear that awareness of the important amino acid is growing – our Leucine Powder, for example, is now one of our best-selling products. This is all for good reason; there is an abundance of reseach on leucine that shows that it works.
Where is Leucine found?
Leucine is a naturally occurring amino acid that can be obtained in the diet. Dairy protein, particularly Whey Protein, is a good source of Leucine.
Also referred to as:
Leucine has been the centre of extensive academic research centring on increasing signalling for protein synthesis. Research suggests a relatively modest amount of leucine is required for maximal protein synthesis and that leucine is THE key amino acid.
