L-Leucine is an essential amino acid. As an essential amino acid it cannot be made by the human body and, therefore, must be consumed through food such as nuts, brown rice and whole wheat bread products or dietary supplements.
This is therefore suitable for an individual wanting to increase their daily intake of L-Leucine and essential amino acids.

It's like medicine flavour and mixability is not good.
Okay here it goes, this is to all the bad reviews of this product..... I would like to point out that stupidity is not an excuse and if you want to slate a product do some research! 1. The reason it doesn’t mix well is because baca’s are non water soluble which means they will not dissolve in water, so the worse they mix the higher the quality!! 2. Most branch chain amino acids taste like ear wax end of get over it!!!!! And if your taking a product that mixes well and tastes amazing well done you’ve brought rubbish bcaa’s Covered in sugar
Most of the time, I have a problem when consuming protein powders (my stomach just tends not to agree with it) and I steer toward consuming protein and other nutrients through food. I was advised by my personal coach to use this because I do quite a lot of weight lifting and L Leucine is very beneficial towards muscle recovery. I mixed this with some squash and I have to say that this gave me such a big energy boost during my workout. It really does help and depending on how much you put in your liquid, you hardly to cannot taste it. I put about 6g in about 500ml of water with 150ml of squash and there was an ever so slightly metallic/unusual taste but I hardly noticed it.Goes Well With:Fruit juice, Squash
L Leucine is an essential Amino Acid. Its main function is to aid recovery and build muscle after strenuous exercise. I use it for recovery protein drinks after long cycling rides. Since I started using it on a regular basis I have found a big improvement in my recovery window. Out of all the Amino Acids required to form good quality protein, L Leucine is probably the most important for athletes to take. So if you do take protein it is a good idea to supliment it with additional L Leucine.Goes Well With:L Leicine on its own doesn't taste too good so I mix it with MYPROTEIN Impact Whey Protein powder mixed in a shaker with a little honey. I sometimes add a little fruit like Bleuberries or Banana.
This is the must have supplement! Take 3-3g before and after workout with the basic supps (BCAA, Glutamin, Beta-alanin and whey, etc) and your goals are fullfilled. And let me tell you the secret about mixability: like all BCAAs mix it in warm (~body temperature) water (or tea)!Goes Well With:Everything
-activate and prolong muscle protein synthesis -eat 5 * 35g protein meals and 2-3g of leucine between them for insane gains -put one scoop directly to Your mouth or use hand blender (google : maximum muscle protein sythesis, prof. layne norton )Goes Well With:glutamine
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, Goes Well With:plain water, do not mix with your protein shake, it makes anything taste foul, why ruin ur tasty shake
Just good Goes Well With:Didn't try Wanted it without any mixed
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. Goes Well With:Creatine, Protein powder
Is meant to be unflavoured but if you can call it morning breath flavour I think that would be appropriate. You can taste it in anything. Juice, shakes, the lot and it isn't the best mixer. I love all my other my protein supps but this is not good I'm afraid.
