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.

Leucine is an essential branched chain amino acid (BCAA) known throughout bodybuilding as the ultimate muscle builder and is essential for achieving a positive nitrogen balance and building lean muscle mass.

Leucine activates an anabolic pathway called the mTOR pathway that stimulates muscle protein synthesis. By increasing Leucine consumption, the mTOR pathway is signaled and protein synthesis is increased.

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.

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.
