Weight loss is a continually evolving science. One of the emerging tools based on scientific study has been manipulation of an essential amino acid known as L-leucine. We’re going to show you how leucine injections and weight loss are connected.
Amino acids are the building blocks of every structure in the human body. L-leucine is an ‘essential’ amino acid. That means it is essential to us but can’t be produced by our bodies. It has to come from outside sources like meat and other animal products. If you have a diet that restricts these food types, you have to find L-leucine through other sources.
In studies published in the Journal of Nutrition and the Journal of Physiology, L-leucine was shown to have a significant effect on maintaining skeletal muscle. Those are the lean muscles that are used in everyday tasks from walking up stairs to carrying toddlers. By binding itself to muscle tissue it strengthens the muscle and allows it to perform longer and more effectively.
Building muscle is fundamental to a balanced weight loss regime. Those lean muscle groups require stability and endurance to get the full benefit of a diet and exercise plan.
The Clinic of Alternative Medicine helps people grasp those benefits through injections of L-leucine in a safe and beneficial way. A safe level of L-leucine is administered to the body non-invasively and requires very little time.
