Leucine is an essential amino acid and is not synthesized in the body. It is an alpha-aminoisocaprioc acid. The microorganisms may synthesize from alpha-ketoisovaleric acid and acetyl CoA. Leucine increases protein synthesis to protect against muscle loss and it also helps to build muscle and preserves muscle tissue even while dieting.
Leucine can be broken down into simpler compounds by the enzymes of the body. This is one of the most important amino acids for hard training body builders or athletes because of its ability to promote muscle recovery. The use of leucine has also been effective against many diseases including cancer and AIDS.
