L Isoleucine

CAS NO: 73-32-5


L-Isoleucine is an essential amino acid that plays an important role in protein synthesis and the maintenance of muscle tissue. Its chemical formula is C6H13NO2. L-Isoleucine is one of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) along with L-Leucine and L-Valine. BCAAs are particularly important for athletes and bodybuilders because they are metabolized in the muscle rather than in the liver, which can help to improve muscle growth and recovery. L-Isoleucine is also involved in the production of hemoglobin and can help to regulate blood sugar levels. It is found in many protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products, and is also available as a dietary supplement.
