LEUCINE

LEUCINE - The Ultimate Muscle Builder

Info

LEUCINE could be hailed as one of the most potent natural muscle building supplements known to man. ALLMAX brings you the purest and most powerful single ingredient to build hard, lean, dense muscle – FAST!

LEUCINE (C6H13NO2) is an Essential Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) known throughout bodybuilding as the ultimate muscle builder.

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.

Limiting Nutrient

LEUCINE is so essential for the body that it is referred to as a limiting nutrient. The body absolutely requires LEUCINE in order to make use of all of the other amino acids. Without adequate amounts of LEUCINE, all other sources of protein can be deemed useless. In short, without LEUCINE the body doesn’t function properly and will not make use of protein.

ALLMAX LEUCINE is available in 100 gram and 400 gram sizes.

Science

Implications for Athletes and Bodybuilders

Lean Muscle Preservation

LEUCINE helps to preserve lean muscle tissue. It has been found to work with insulin to promote protein synthesis in skeletal muscle. It is also essential for post-workout recovery. In fact, one study found that adding 2.8 grams of LEUCINE to a meal, whether it was high in protein or not, helped to increase muscle protein synthesis by approximately 60%! Another study found 4.4 grams and 8.3 grams of LEUCINE increased muscle protein synthesis by 50-70%! From this research, scientists suggest consuming approximately 3-4 grams of LEUCINE to effectively maximize muscle protein synthesis.

One study found that LEUCINE increased muscle protein synthesis by as much as 50-70%!

A study conducted on LEUCINE consumption found it may prevent muscle loss in older adults. The study group who consumed a LEUCINE-rich diet did not experience as much protein loss as the non-supplemented group. The LEUCINE group experienced a more favorable protein breakdown that was more comparable to a younger participant’s pattern.

LEUCINE also helps to maintain a positive nitrogen balance. Research found that a positive LEUCINE balance indicates the body is in a state of protein anabolism and that a negative LEUCINE balance may suggest catabolism. Simply stated, LEUCINE is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance and building lean muscle mass.

Dieting and Blood Sugar Regulation

If you’re on a diet, LEUCINE has been found to be especially helpful for its ability to spare protein degradation. When calories are restricted, the body uses LEUCINE as a source of gluconeogenesis. By supplementing with LEUCINE, blood glucose levels can be stabilized as LEUCINE easily and readily converts to glucose. In fact, LEUCINE has been found to convert to glucose at a much faster rate than the other BCAAs.

LEUCINE can also supply the body with an energy source during stress, which is essential during extreme dieting or after intense training.

A study conducted on the different diet groups 30 minutes after resistance training found that the group who consumed a carbohydrate/protein plus a LEUCINE supplement experienced a reduction in protein degradation. This group also showed an increase in skeletal muscle protein synthesis, which was significantly greater than the study group who consumed just carbohydrates and protein.

THE ALLMAX ADVANTAGE

Our pure Pharmaceutical Grade LEUCINE crystalline powder is a 100% Animal-Free source! Derived from a pure vegetable (corn), the complex fermentation process yields a clean, white crystalline LEUCINE powder. There are zero binders, excipients, additives or preservatives in our LEUCINE product.

Our pure Pharmaceutical-Grade LEUCINE is a 100% Animal-Free source!

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.

BEWARE OF YOUR LEUCINE SOURCE: While ALLMAX Essentials provides you with the ultimate in high-grade ingredients, there are other cheaper ways to get your LEUCINE. Most LEUCINE, frequently of Chinese origin, comes to you from a source of HUMAN HAIR (typically from barber shop floor waste), DUCK feathers – or both!

FAQ

1. What is LEUCINE?
