L-Leucine occurs as small, white, lustrous plates, or as a white, crystalline powder. One gram dissolves in about 40 mL of water and in about 100mL of glacial acetic acid. It is sparingly soluble in alcohol, and soluble in dilute hydrochloric acid and in solutions of alkali hydroxides and carbonates.
The role of L-Leucine includes working with L-Isoleucine and L-Valine to repair muscles, control blood sugar, and provide energy to body tissues. It also increases growth hormone production and helps burn visceral fat.
Leucine, isoleucine and valine are all branched chain amino acids that help promote muscle recovery after training. Among them, leucine is the most effective branched chain amino acid, which can effectively prevent muscle loss because it can decompose into glucose faster. Increasing glucose can prevent muscle tissue damage, so it is especially suitable for bodybuilders. Leucine also promotes bone, skin, and damaged muscle tissue healing, and doctors usually recommend that patients take leucine supplements after surgery.
