L-Isoleucine is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. L-isoleucine is one of the branched chain amino acids (L-isoleucine, L-valine, and L-leucine) and is classified as an essential amino acid. This means the body cannot manufacture L-isoleucine; it must be acquired through diet or supplementation. The male adult’s daily requirement is 10 mg per kg of body weight. Food sources for isoleucine include almonds, cashews and soy protein.
The effects of isoleucine include muscle repair with leucine and valine, controlling blood glucose, and providing body tissue with energy. It also improves the output of growth hormone and help to burn the visceral fat. This fat is within body interior and can’t be effectively digested only through diet and exercise.
The best food sources for isoleucine include brown rice, beans, meat, nut, soybean meal and whole meal.
Used for amino acid injection, compound amino acid transfusion, food additives, nutrition supplements.
