Leucine to Help Prevent Muscle Wasting

Leucine: A Practical Solution for Muscle Wasting


Researchers say that the amino acid Leucine is a practical and cost-effective way to do away with muscle wasting in patients that are bed-bound. According to Dr. Douglas Paddon-Jones, the amino acid could be of use to hospitals and nursing homes, as it can even be beneficial to patients who are still physically active. L-Leucine is a major component of the buffer proteins ferritin, and astacin. Ferritin is a kind of protein found in cells that stores iron and releases it in a limited way. It is called a buffer protein because it protects the body when it is deficient in iron or when it has reached iron toxicity level.
