I love Leucine

First time I've used this amino acid and it is excellent. I have increased muscle mass and lost fat. The down side is the fine powder won't mix with anything so its a matter of a teaspoon full into the mouth and down it with lots of water. Worth the effort.

Goes Well With:

Disgusting but worth it

Plain Leucine tastes disgusting but mixed with a flavoured BCAA product it tastes fine and enhances the Leucine to Isoleucine and Valine ratio. Have honestly noticed more muscle retention when dieting after adding in two servings on training days. If you can stand the taste, you could get away with Leucine on its own.

Goes Well With:

As all the other reviews have said, alone this creates quite a chemically taste, so I always mix with a flavoured pre-workout or post workout flavoured protein. Doesn't mix at all with a stirrer, mixes very well within a shaker!

Goes Well With:

Pre-workout or Protein

Too soon to judge

I've only recently started using the product but so far I'm happy. It doesn't mix at all.. Sort of sits on top of whatever you put it in and it also has a taste that May give me a hernia... However it does seem to be effective... Be warned though, it doesn't come with a scoop. I wasn't informed of this and don't want to just order one.

Goes Well With:

Something with a strong flavour
