Leucine is one of the amino acids that cannot be synthesised from other components in feed or forage, so must be obtained from the diet. In human sport, BCAA (leucine, isoleucine and valine) have been shown to aid in recovery processes from exercise such as supporting protein synthesis, aiding natural glycogen replacement, supporting horses natural function to reduce muscle soreness following exercise and helping maintain mental function in aerobic-based exercise. These effects are now considered to be due to Leucine.
Science Supplements Muscle Builder provides the essential amino acid L-Lysine, which is considered to be the first limiting amino acid when it comes to protein synthesis (muscle growth) in horses.
HMB (B-hydroxy B-methylbutyrate) which is formed from the metabolism of the essential amino acid Leucine and which has been shown in studies to support the reduction of muscle protein breakdown.
