Leucine is the the foundation of the BCAA formula, and as such should be a bigger portion of the ratio (i.e. 2:1:1 in favor of Leucine). Leucine is responsible for regulating blood-sugar levels. Leucine is a reactant that enhances the effects of Human Growth Hormones (HGH). Because of this, it is essential for protein synthesis and development of lean muscle mass.*
Considered the smaller sibling to Leucine. Very similar in its effects to the body and muscles . . . However, Isoleucine can assist with muscle recovery, and stimulates HGH release within the body.
Valine assists the body and muscle tissue with nitrogen retention. This helps level the nitrogen balance and improve the use of glucose. Again, the more efficient your body is at using glycogen, the more endurance you will have leading to more efficient muscle growth. This can be very beneficial when competing and in a caloric deficit.
L-Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids found in the body. It can form upwards of 60% of your total amino acid formation at any given time. Both Glutamine and Creatine pass through the blood-brain barrier easily, so they can be defined as supplements for muscles and for the brain. In the brain glutamic acid can be found (fueled by Glutamine). This is essential for brain function and other mental activities.*
The other benefits come with Glutamine's ability to balance the other amino acids out. While nitrogen retention is good for muscle pump and endurance, too much nitrogen can cause ammonia in the brain, which can lead to cerebral dysfunction. Glutamine attaches itself to the nitrogen molecules, forming glutamic acid.*
