Extend the window of time for muscle growth. An anabolic amino acid.
Hard to find a Leucine that actually mixes well. Added this to my protein and was perfect. Love this ingredient. I recover well on it and I seem to see better results over time. Good job Allmax.
Leucine is the best of the 3 BCAAs so I figured why not get this isolated by itself. After receiving the product though, I did more research and realized that the 3 BCAAs work better in conjunction. In other words 1+1+1=5. I ended up just taking a scoop of this stuff on top of the BCAAs and protein I was already taking and it seemed to do a fine job. I hate the taste and I hate mixing this stuff, but I love what it does for my body.
This is one of the best, if not thee best deals for leucine I could find. Seems to be a pure, high quality form that mixes well in a shaker-bottle. I add about 5 grams to my protein post-workout, and sometimes take about a gram pre-workout or during my workout. Other manufacturers seem to have inferior quality leucine that's more expensive. When mixed in with my chocolate flavored whey protein, the taste is barely detectable. Not bad at all. Consuming it by itself in just water is probably not a good idea taste-wise. As the most important BCAA for anabolism, this leucine is a solid choice from my experience. Since leucine is particularly water soluble, I suggest using a shaker-bottle with the little spiral metal mixer inside when mixing this leucine with something like whey protein or juice.
Anyone buying leucine should know that the taste is not going to be something enjoyable. This particular brand also did not mix easily and often left clumps. Overall however, I think this product still works to aid recovery post-workout, but since this one of few leucine supplements I have taken I do not have enough experience to judge just how effective this particular one is over other brands.
I used this leucine 3 times a day. 5 grams per serving. I really didn't notice to much with it, and since I had used other leucine products I noticed that this one didn't give me the same effects like the other ones. It doesn't mix well and the taste is not that good. I would highly recommend other leucine prodcuts specially HICA, since its a metabolite of lecuine which is more effective, like Syntrax SuperChain and its more convenient and better results.
Allmax Nutrition Leucine 400 Grams is everything I was hoping for I will keep buying. It mixes well in water and is virtually tasteless.
Good product. Priced well, and very potent compared to other brands. Mixability is good. Taste is sour- but very manageable if your mixing with cards or protein. I take Luucine PWO with my shake. It doesnt do so much in terms of recovery- but it has helped maintain my gains during fasting and the like.
Leucine is the amino that turns the switch on for protein synthesis (muscle growth). When I have some extra money to spare I purchase this and sprinkle it on my food to increase protein absorption, or just drink it by adding it to water or a post-workout protein shake. Essential if trying to lose weight and retain muscle mass!
