L-Leucine stimulates mTOR activity, an Anabolic pathway which
leads to the up-regulation of Muscle Protein Synthesis.
L-Leucine increases Protein Synthesis which creates an Anabolic
environment, essential for muscle growth production and the
decrease of muscle protein catabolism (muscle breakdown).
L-Leucine taken post-training can help suppress the catabolic stress
hormone Cortisol. This minimises the catabolic effects and initiates an
Anabolic response, resulting in an improved muscle recovery process.
|WHEN TO TAKE|
|Can be taken at any time of the day to up-regulate Muscle Protein Synthesis. For optimum results take L-Leucine bracketed around training times to maximise its Anabolic effects.|
|HOW TO TAKE|
|Mix 1 scoop (approx. 4g) with water or preferred fluid. Can be added to other shakes.|
