Leukic Supplements are commonly presented & sold as Formulated Supplementary Sports Foods in Australia - Leukic (also known as L-leucine-ketoisocaproic Acid) is an anabolic reactor designed for growing strong muscles and increasing overall muscle growth. Leukic is somewhat of a muscle “all rounder” – not only growing muscles by inducing an anabolic state, but also preventing muscle catabolism and Protein breakdown. Similar in function to Growth Hormone (GH) and Testosterone, Leukic’s point of difference is its ability to not affect other hormones within the body.
Leukic is a combination of two main ingredients; Leucine and Alpha-Ketoisocaproic Acid Calcium. Leucine is an essential Amino Acid and Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) well known for its ability to increase the body’s production of Growth Hormone. It also contributes to the repair of muscles provides energy to the body and possesses Fat Burning and blood sugar regulating properties. The “KIC” in Leukic represents Alpha-Ketoisocaproic Acid Calcium, a Branched Chain Keto Acid (BCKA) known for its anti-catabolic qualities – this helps to prevent catabolism (muscle breakdown). On top of reducing muscle loss, Branched Chain Keto Acids are also effective in providing Energy to the body and removing ammonia. Ammonia can cause fatigue after a work out.
By triggering anabolic reactions, Leukic keeps you in a muscle building state for longer. The point that sets it apart from similar supplements such as Growth Hormone and Testosterone is its ability to leave hormone levels unchanged. Other anabolic supplements are victims of what is referred to as the “negative feedback loop”. This occurs when the body’s muscle building hormones are elevated. Of course, this is a good thing; however, it can often cause other hormones to increase or decrease, creating a hormone imbalance and negatively affecting your overall goal of muscle gain. Leukic avoids this side effect, which has made it an extremely popular sports supplement on the market today. The benefits of Leukic were proven in a study conducted by the American Journal of Physiology, Endocrinology and Metabolism. The results indicated that Leukic increases protein synthesis, while decreasing the rate of protein breakdown, after a work out. By not affecting the body’s hormone balance, Leukic is able to put the body into an anabolic state almost immediately, thus enhancing muscle building results and decreasing catabolism. There are no recorded negative side effects of using Leukic as a sports supplement. In fact, it even shows no signs of side effects such as bloating or acne, which are symptoms often associated with similar anabolic supplements. Its ability to bypass the altering of hormone levels means that it is suitable for use by both male and female athletes and bodybuilders. Typical dosages of Leukic range between 7 to 14 grams per day (you should read the label and follow their recommendations). It is generally recommended that you take your daily dosage in at least two portions, for example, half in the morning and the other half just before a workout. This product stacks well with endurance, repairing and muscle building supplements such as Creatines, Proteins and, more specifically, Glycine-l-arginine-alpha-ketoisocaproic acid also know as Gakic.
L-leucine-ketoisocaproic Acid is not a sole source of nutrition and should be used in conjunction with an appropriate physical training or exercise programme. Not suitable for children or pregnant women. Should only be used under medical or dietetic supervision. Always read the label prior to use.
