Key Science & How it Can Help

Amino acids are the building block components that all proteins are made from in nature. Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) are essential as they cannot be synthesised by the body and must be provided through the diet.

The BCAA’s L-Leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-Valine make up around 33% of muscle tissue.  Some experts believe that even moderate exercise can increase your body’s needs forL- Leucine by up to 240%.

L-Leucine the “power” amino

L-Leucine in particular is of great interest to athletes and bodybuilders  as modern scientific research has focused on its signalling role in protein synthesis. L-Leucine is also known as a "limiting nutrient". This means you must have enough L-Leucine in proportion to other amino acids in order for your body to make full use of the protein you eat. So regardless of how much protein you consume L-Leucine levels could be the limiting factor on how successful your body utilises them.
