What is L-Leucine?

In total, L Leucine is around eight percent of the total amino acid count in your body's protein structures. It is also the fourth most concentrated amino acid in your tissue.

Who is L-Leucine suitable for?

This is therefore sutiable for an individual wanting to increase their daily intake of L-Leucine and essential amino acids.

Indisputably the most important aminoacid for muscle growth. This isolated amino acid + citrulline are my favorite ones. I think they can go well with every diet and bodycomposition. Excellent recovery and muscle spare properties. Mixability is poor, but I easily solve the problem by gulping 6-7 grams after workout directly in my mouth with little bit of water. I use only unflavoured and I cant say its bad, nor good. Its quite neutral. These days I am gonna try the fermented one which is derived from corn and not animal based tissues or waste like this one.

Exactly what you might expect. Not bought for taste so I wouldn't care anyway but I don't pick up any taste at all when mixed with unflavoured whey. Not yet tried it alone but I imagine it is similar to the other powdered BCAA I have tried - not a great taste but not too bad either - If you're a bit odd like me I actually start to enjoy the unique natural flavour. Texture of powder is similar to the other powdered BCAA - slightly waxy texture, does require more shaking to mix with water that a poweder like Whey. I will buy again.

Water, Unflavoured Whey

I've been adding this to my eating plan for the last two weeks. The powder mixes easily in all manner of liquids (I add to my Myprotein shake before and after workouts and on occassion mix a scoopful into some greek yogurt) also in a soluble vitamin c tab intra workout. On its own the flavour is a bit harsh, but when mixed up its relativley tastless :) It works, the intensity of my training is higher (I'm currently running the 2nd cycle of a cutting programme, strict intake, macros etc) I feel the L'leucine is giving me that little bit extra that I've been needing! Another great product at a great price form the guys at Myprotein. Highly Recommended Rich

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.

So firstly - Does it mix with water - Absolutely not - it just sits on top Does it taste good, absolutley not, it taste like soluble paracetomol and you kind of have to knock it back and keep drinking water. Does it work, - With all suplements now, we cant really tell if its working, we can just hope its doing something Would i buy again, probably will , relatively cheap, and is one of the main amino acids responsible for Muscle growth,

plain water, do not mix with your protein shake, it makes anything taste foul, why ruin ur tasty shake

Well, it is pure leucine, what can you expect? Powder is messy, but Leucine is effective at boosting MPS with 2.5-5g dose. The price for a kilo is very good. Taste is quite strong, but not too bad. Does not mix at all at first. But if you swirl it around in your shaker and let it settle for 30 mins+ it will dissolve completely.

Tastes disgusting by itself 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.

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!

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.

I take this with whey protein powder, L-Glutamine and Creatine. Seems to work. A tad hard to mix if you use only water and it has a bit of a chemical taste.
