Leucine Loaded - The King BCAA
How much leucine does your amino product contain?
Amino IV packs 5 grams of leucine per serving, putting it in the top 1% of amino acid products on the market. In fact you would have to double-dose most BCAA/Amino products in order to get the same leucine content.
Countless research has shown that leucine is the key amino acid for activating muscle protein synthesis. Amounts as low as 1.8g (in combination with EAAs) have shown to be effective, with more commonly researched amounts around 2.5g (in combination with BCAAs), and the high amounts in the 3.6g range (alone, and in combination with EAAs).
We don’t mess around with Amino IV -- 5 grams of leucine per serving, and 30 servings per bottle makes Amino IV a cost effective leucine source, before we even get into the perks of the rest of the formula!
It's Not About the Ratio!
If you are an “amino-holic” than you have probably come across advertisements and claims about what the best “BCAA ratio” is. Some companies claim a 2:1:1 ratio is the best because they say it’s the only research backed ratio. We are here to tell you that is simply not true.
In fact, one of the most recent and powerful studies, an independent study by the US Department of Defense, was done on a blend of EAAs. One consisted of a 2:1:1 ratio of BCAAs in the blend, and the other, a leucine-enriched blend that had a ratio of 4:1:1, the latter showing better results.
OMG! Does this mean a 4:1:1 ratio is better than a 2:1:1 ratio?! No...what it means is that the ratio is not important. What is important is that you have a high leucine content, and sufficient amounts of all other EAAs in your diet. That is why Amino IV is a formulated high leucine-enriched EAA product.
