Leucine Activates mTOR to “Switch On” Muscle Building
A series of cellular studies has now clearly shown that leucine directly activates a critical compound in muscle called the mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin). It turns out mTOR is like a molecular switch that turns on the machinery that manufactures muscle proteins and leucine is one of the major activators of mTOR. So leucine not only provides the building blocks for protein synthesis, it also plays a critical role in up-regulating the process.
Leucine May Helps You Lose Weight & Spare Muscle When Dieting
A large number of studies have shown that high protein diets help spare muscle loss during dieting and weight loss. In two separate studies, the groups consuming high leucine diets had greater weight loss, greater fat loss and better preservation of lean body mass. In these studies, the high leucine diets also resulted in better glucose control.
A growing body of evidence indicates that increasing Leucine intake can have multiple benefits. It provides an important building block for muscle protein, activates key events in the complex process of protein synthesis, augments weight loss, improves body composition, and may correct metabolic disturbances such as elevated glucose and cholesterol levels.
