There are 20 different amino acids that make up the thousands of different proteins in the human body. Of those 20, 9 are considered essential amino acids. This means that these essential amino acids can’t be made by your body and have to be obtained through your food and supplement intake. Of the 9 essential amino acids, 3 of them are what we’ve come to know as branched-chain amino acids (or BCAAs) - the most important of which is leucine.
In fact, leucine is the only BCAA of the three that is actually involved in muscle making. Leucine directly activates a molecular switch in the body called mTor which turns on the process by which muscular proteins are manufactured. As a bonus, leucine also helps burn fat and disperse bad cholesterol through its benign influence on blood sugar.
A full daily dose of leucine will ensure that you see:
- Faster improvements in muscle recovery
- Greater increases in lean muscle mass
- Increases in muscle protein synthesis
- Gains in strength and power
If you’re not taking in enough protein during the day or you’re just missing out on an essential that can give the edge, SSA Leucine caps will help you go a long way.
- Take 5 capsules 30 minutes before training and on non-training days
