Leucine+ Powder Overview
AllMax Nutrition Leucine Powder contains 100% pure l-leucine powder, the most powerful and highly praised branched-chain amino acid. L-leucine has been shown to be one of the strongest all natural and non-hormonal anabolic muscle builders. Leucine supplementation fosters a powerful, lean muscular physique by increasing protein synthesis, preventing muscle catabolism during workouts and by triggering new muscle growth when taken in conjunction with a high protein diet.
Leucine is incredibly powerful because it is not at all selective; in fact it works on all muscle tissues found throughout the entire body. Therefore, leucine supplementation can help build a powerful upper body as well as a strong, lean lower body. Think of l-leucine as the master amino acid that regulates protein synthesis for all other amino acids. More leucine generally equals increased protein synthesis, which translates into increased utilization of all amino acids consumed.
Leucine powder is best taken twice daily at morning and at night with protein-rich meals and before/after training. Studies have shown that leucine is most anabolic when blood levels rise and fall, so it’s actually not beneficial to take leucine with every meal. Instead, take it during the most anabolic times of the day: breakfast, peri-workout and before bedtime. This will ensure high concentrations of l-leucine when your body is already primed for increased protein synthesis. If you’re looking to naturally increase muscle mass, pick up a bottle of AllMax Nutrition Leucine Powder today and start seeing results in as little as one week!
Leucine+ Powder Description from Allmax Nutrition
Leucine is likely the best single ingredient supplement on the market to build hard, lean, dense muscle, fast! Leucine is an Essential Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) that is known throughout bodybuilding as the ultimate muscle-builder. It's considered essential because your body cannot produce it, so it must be supplied by your diet. Leucine activates an anabolic pathway called the mTOR which stimulates muscle protein synthesis. By increasing Leucine consumption the mTOR pathway is activated and protein synthesis is increased. Simply stated, Leucine is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance and building lean muscle mass.

One serving (1 rounded teaspoon) 2 times per day. (Take one serving immediately after intense activity). TIP: Pure Leucine by nature basically tastes neutral with a slightly tart or bitter taste and does not dissolve immediately in water. We recommend adding it to your ISOFLEX Protein shake, a flavored mix or juice such as squeezed lemon with an artificial sweetener like Stevia or Sucralose. Mixing with an electric blender is recommended. Beware: If you get cheap Leucine that dissolves instantly, you may need to be concerned about the source of your Leucine. Without additional processing, real Leucine does not dissolve easily or quickly.
