Leucine can be used as nutritional supplement and flavoring agent. It can be used to prepare amino acid infusion and comprehensive amino acid preparations, hypoglycemic agents and plant growth promoters.
The role of leucine includes working with isoleucine and valine to repair muscles, control blood sugar and provide energy for body tissues. It also increases the production of growth hormone and helps to burn visceral fat, which is located inside the body and cannot be effectively affected only by diet and exercise.
Leucine, isoleucine and valine are all branched chain amino acids, which help promote muscle recovery after training. Leucine is the most effective branched chain amino acid, which can effectively prevent muscle loss, because it can be decomposed into glucose faster. Increasing glucose can prevent muscle tissue damage, so it is especially suitable for bodybuilders. Leucine also promotes the healing of bones, skin, and damaged muscle tissue. Doctors usually recommend leucine supplements for patients after surgery.
Because it is easily converted to glucose, leucine helps regulate blood sugar levels. Leucine deficient people may have symptoms similar to hypoglycemia, such as headache, dizziness, fatigue, depression, insanity, and irritability.
The best food sources of leucine include brown rice, beans, meat, nuts, soybean flour, and whole wheat. As it is an essential amino acid, it means that the body cannot produce it by itself, and it can only be obtained through diet. People engaged in high-intensity physical activity and low protein diet should consider taking leucine supplement. Although there is an independent supplement, it is better to take it together with isoleucine and valine. Therefore, it is more convenient to select mixed type supplements.
But like anything, excessive intake of leucine can also cause side effects. It is known that excessive intake is related to pellagra, vitamin A deficiency and other problems, and can cause dermatitis, diarrhea, mental disorders and other problems. Too much leucine in the diet will also increase the amount of ammonia in the body, and damage the liver and kidney functions. Therefore, unless a doctor has been consulted, patients with impaired liver or kidney function should not use large doses of leucine, which may lead to deterioration of the condition.
