What is Amino Acid L-Isoleucine

Many people ask us what are the reasons for taking XLR8 Three BUILD and the importance of Essential Branch Chain Amino Acids for weight loss and what each Amino Acid does.

So we will be posting exactly what each Essential Branch Chain Amino Acid is and what each one does and the benefit of using it.

L-Isoleucine

What is Isoleucine and how does Isoleucine help with weight loss? 

Isoleucine is an essential branched chain amino acid, which means your body can’t produce it on its own, so you must ingest it. Threonine can be found in certain foods like nuts, seeds, meat, eggs, fish, lentils, peas, and soy protein

The body is unable to produce L-Isoleucine and so it must be ingested through the foods you eat or by taking a supplement like XLR8 THREE. Your body requires amino acids every day to function, maintain your muscles and regulate your immune system.

Isoleucine is an amino acid that is best known for its ability to increase endurance and help heal and repair muscle tissue and encourage clotting at the site of injury. This amino acid is especially important to serious athletes and body builders because its primary function in the body is to boost energy and help the body recover from strenuous physical activity. 

Isoleucine is a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA). There are three branched-chain amino acids in the body, isoleucine, valine, and leucine, and all of them help promote muscle recovery after exercise. Isoleucine is actually broken down for energy within the muscle tissue. Is also keeps energy levels stable by helping to regulate blood sugar; a deficiency of isoleucine produces symptoms similar to those of hypoglycemia, and may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, depression, confusion, and irritability. 

People that exercise a lot or that have a low-protein diet should consider supplementation. Isoleucine is also available in stand-alone supplemental form, but should always be taken together with the other two branched-chain amino acids, leucine and valine. 

People with impaired liver or kidney function should not take isoleucine without first consulting a physician, as large doses of amino acids may aggravate these conditions.
