Leucine (abbreviated as Leu or L) is a branched-chain α-amino acid. It is classified as a hydrophobic amino acid due to its aliphatic isobutyl side chain. It is encoded by six codons (UUA, UUG, CUU, CUC, CUA, and CUG) and is a major component of the subunits in ferritin, astacin and other 'buffer' proteins. Leucine is an essential amino acid, meaning that the human body cannot synthesize it, and it must be acquired through food or dietary supplements.
1. L-Leucine is the forth most concentrated amino acid in skeletal muscle tissue - it comprises about eight percent of the total amino acid count in your body's protein structures.
2. As one of the three BCAA's, L-Leucine is essential to your basic health. It has both athletic and medical applications.
3. L-Leucine maintains nitrogen balance, and it has also been shown to enhance thinking abilities that can decline as physical activity becomes more intense.
4. L-Leucine also works to heal bone, skin and muscle tissue.
