Leucine is an essential BCAA. Leucine is an essential amino acid, which simply means our bodies cannot produce it and we must get it from dietary sources. Leucine is the most abundant of the three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) in muscles (the other two are isoleucine and valine).*

ANABOLIC AMINO ACID

One of the primary functions of Leucine is to help preserve lean tissue. This is vital to successful weight loss. Leucine works directly to prevent muscle loss during weight loss. When following a high protein diet high in Leucine, therefore, the majority of weight you lose is fat, not muscle.*

L-Leucine also stacks well with whey protein or other protein powders, other muscle building products or other fat loss products and just about anything! Of all the amino acids that you take in on a daily basis, L-Leucine may just be the most beneficial. It is an essential branched chain amino acid, that cannot be made by the body, and must be acquired through food and dietary supplements. Leucine can be found in foods like nuts, wheat pasta/bread, and brown rice and whey protein powder. Leucine is classified as a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA). It comprises about 8% of the total amino acids in your body's protein structures and is the fourth most concentrated amino acid in skeletal muscle tissue.*
