Leucine General Information
Leucine is an essential amino acid that the body cannot manufacture. It is also part of a group of compounds called “branched-chain amino acids” which plays a key role in helping muscle cells manufacture protein. This is a critical amino acid for hard training body builders and athletes. Although it promotes muscle recovery, Leucine does not product significant changes in body composition. High concentrations of Leucine can be found in meat and dairy products, and in smaller amounts, in wheat germ, brown rice, soybeans, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, chickpeas, lentils and corn.

Leucine Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Leucine supplements are used to help treat diabetes, muscle wasting, twitching and tremors, and liver and brain damage in alcoholics. This amino acid also helps regulate blood sugar levels, the growth and repair of bones, skin, and muscles, growth hormone production, and it speeds the healing of wounds and regulates energy. It may also be helpful for those with phenylketonuria, a condition in which the body cannot metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine.

Leucine Dosage Information
Amino acid supplements prefaced by the letter L, such as L-Leucine, are more similar to the amino acids in the body than those that start with the letter D, with the exception of D-L phenylalanine, which treats chronic pain. The daily dosage of Leucine is about 16 mg per kilogram of body weight per day. It is best to consult with your physician if you need a Leucine supplement for the treatment of your condition.
