AMPlify your recovery and lean muscle-building goals with this revolutionary formula available in convenient great-tasting chews. Amplified Leucine Complex was developed with one of the most important amino acids for lean muscle building, leucine, along with the new and trending ingredients to fuel muscle recovery optunia and Sicilian Blood Orange Extract.*
Leucine is one of the most important amino acids to fuel muscle growth, recovery and performance.* This crucial branched chain amino acid helps support the preservation of glycogen in the muscle.* When combined with protein, leucine has been shown to support strength and power workouts and may have more performance-enhancing benefits when compared to taking protein alone.* Leucine also helps spare the muscle tissue from breaking down from intense training.* Therefore, the body will be able to focus on more useful energy sources like carbohydrates and fats.*
Maintaining Insulin Balance
Opuntia extract (prickly pear cactus) has been shown to support a healthy insulin response.* Maintenance of insulin balance is crucial for supporting lean muscle development and recovery along with carbohydrate metabolism.* Together, opuntia and leucine have been shown to boost insulin post-exercise. Insulin is key for shuttling nutrients to the muscles and helps restore glycogen stores. A boost in insulin post-exercise plays a key role in leucine and amino acid absorption and delivery of nutrients to muscle cells to support anabolism and recovery.*
Protecting Muscle Cells
The exotic fruit extract, Sicilian Blood Orange, is becoming one of the most well-known supplements among athletes for its recovery and muscle cell-protecting benefits.* This rare extract will help protect muscle cells from toxic free radicals that attack muscle during intense workouts.* The Sicilian Blood Orange will also lower oxidative stress in athletes to support greater recovery.*
