L-Leucine is one of the essential Amino Acids and one of three Branched Chained Amino Acids, along with Isoleucine & Valine. There are eight Essential Amino Acids in total, with the others being: L-Isoleucine, L-Lysine, L-Methionine, L-Phenylalaline, L-Threonine, L-Tryptophan and L-Valine. (L-Histidine and L-Arginine are often included as EAAs). 1 They cannot be made by the body, thus must be derived from the diet. L-Leucine is found in nuts, brown rice and whole wheat bread, or supplements. 2 There are three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) in the body, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine, and L-Leucine, and all of them help promote muscle recovery after exercise.
L-leucine is not synthesized in animals, hence it must be ingested, usually as a component of proteins. It is synthesized in plants and microorganisms via several steps starting from.
As a dietary supplement, leucine has been found to slow the degradation of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins. Leucine is utilized in the liver, adipose tissue, and muscle tissue. In adipose and muscle tissue, leucine is used in the formation of, and the combined usage of leucine in these two tissues is seven times greater than its use in the liver.
