Overview: Isoleucine is BCAA used in conjunction with other BCAAs like L-Valine and L-Leucine. It helps muscle endurance and assists in the repair, recovery, and rebuilding of muscles. It also helps boost energy in times of strenuous exercise by serving as a fuel source for skeletal muscles during periods of metabolic stress.
It may also promote protein synthesis, suppress protein catabolism, and serve as substrates for glucogenesis.
