Leucine Powder Leucine Powder

XXL Nutrition Leucine Powder is a dietary supplement, a portion of which provides as much as 5000mg of leucine – an exogenous amino acid in the form of water-soluble powder. This amino acid significantly influences the development of muscles by supporting protein synthesis and protecting muscles against catabolic processes.

L-leucine is a non-polar, exogenous amino acid (cannot be produced in a human body), belonging to the group of branched-chain amino acid (BCAA). The richest leucine products are soybeans, nuts, as well as beef, fish, chicken meat and eggs. However, sometimes the demand for this essential amino acid grows or it is simply worth to supplement it, in order to benefit from a larger leucine supply.

The unique properties of L-leucine include:
Stimulation of muscle protein synthesis and musculature increase
Leucine is an amino acid with an unusual effect promoting the growth of muscle mass through the increased protein synthesis. It may increase the intracellular calmodulin-bound calcium. This is a direct impulse for a cell to activate a special mTOR protein complex, which, in turn, results in the more intensive biosynthesis of proteins necessary for muscle work and construction.

In addition, leucine itself is a protein alpha-amino acid, and thus takes part in the formation of the primary protein structure. Supplementation of leucine will increase its concentration in the blood, which prevents the inhibition of protein synthesis resulting from the deficiency of this key amino acid.

Furthermore, higher doses of orally administered leucine prevent muscle catabolism, and, as some studies suggest, may help to prevent muscle atrophy caused by various conditions.

Leucine as the main branched-chain amino acid
BCAAs, or branched chain amino acids, are a group of three compounds, including valine, isoleucine, and leucine. The latter, which is the main component of the preparation, is considered to be the most important branched-chain amino acid, due to the greatest effect it has on the body.

BCAAs have an anti-catabolic effect on muscle tissue and accelerate its regeneration. In addition, they can reduce the level of tryptophan, which is a precursor to the synthesis of serotonin causing a feeling of drowsiness and exhaustion after a hard training.

Synergistic interaction of leucine with other popular substances
Often, the interaction of leucine with other exogenous or endogenous compounds (e.g., insulin) may provide additional benefits. A good example of it is the synergistic action of leucine with carbohydrates and insulin.

It has been proven that leucine taken together with carbohydrates causes an increased insulin secretion from the pancreas. As a result, more glucose penetrates the muscle cells, thus providing the body with more energy to work, for example during a workout. Additionally, insulin itself is a hormone that enhances anabolic processes, which further supports protein biosynthesis.

Besides, some studies also suggest that administration of L-leucine with resveratrol may positively affect the reduction of adipose tissue, and combining it with citrulline may help to activate the aforementioned mTOR complex to larger extends (more efficient protein synthesis).

In summary, XXL Nutrition Leucine Powder is a popular supplement that is extremely useful for sportsmen to provide them with a solid dose of leucine, essential for muscle development. The amino acid has a positive effect on accelerated protein synthesis, which results in more effective development of muscle tissue and prevents its breakdown. Leucine may also support regeneration and act synergistically with other dietary supplements.

Leucine

Information

Leucine is an essential amino acid, one of the three branched chain amino acids, ketogenic, its isomer is isoleucine. It affects the secretion of anabolic hormones (insulin, combined carbohydrates), acts on enzymes (mTOR) starting the process of muscle protein synthesis and controlling its course. Protein synthesis by leucine is affecting the development of bones, muscles and skin. It reduces the fat tissue. Without the availability of leucine, protein synthesis is impossible. It naturally occurs in animal products (such as eggs, meat, dairy and fish), plant origin, and as a post-training supplements, BCAA, EAA, no-boosters, creatine stacks, carbohydrate supplements. Ir is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements. It is one of the most important amino acids for the athlete's body, basically in every sports discipline.
Dosage: The demand is 5-10 g / 24h, dosage pre- and post-workout and in the morning after waking up.
