L-Leucine is one of the essential amino acids, important for protein synthesis and muscle building in the human body. It can be used to maintain lean muscle mass. Fermented L-Leucine is of vegetarian origin, processed by fermentation, making the product vegan.
L-Leucine, along with valine and isoleucine, is one of the branched-chain BCAA amino acids. They are among the essential amino acids and must be included in the diet as the body cannot produce them itself.
Sufficient supply is particularly important for athletes as it has a major share in muscle protein metabolism and in muscle regeneration and maintenance.

Fermented Leucine can be taken at any time of the day. As a dietary supplement, take 5 g three times daily with meals.
Taking Fermented Leucine during training: Leucine can be used as a source of energy for the muscles, but more importantly it slows down the speed of protein breakdown in skeletal muscle tissue. It has also been shown that Leucine reduces the delayed muscle pain after an intensive workout. Taking Fermented Leucine after training: mix another 5 grams of Leucine in your post-workout protein shake. The combination of carbohydrates, protein and Leucine has been seen as the biggest increase in muscle protein synthesis. Taking Fermented Leucine before bedtime: 5 grams of Leucine before bedtime helps stimulate muscle building hormone production and accelerate muscle recovery during sleep, when the body recovers muscle tissue damaged by intense weight training.
