Protein Maximizer: Leucine Peptides for greater muscle gains.
Turn your protein into a super muscle builder!
Protein Maximizer: Leucine Peptides delivers an influx of the power di and tri peptide leucine. Leucine, when supplemented, helps supports an increase in protein synthesis to build muscle.
For the ultimate in purity, Protein Maximizer: Leucine Peptides is unflavored.

Leucine and Whey increases insulin
Insulin is a powerful anabolic hormone. Equals huge muscle gains!!*
Increases anabolic activity
From what we have seen in research studies, drinking whey and leucine pre workout increases protein synthesis.
Leucine activates mTOR – to switch on muscle building
mToR plays an important part in building muscle.*
Leucine helps you lose weight
Some studies show that leucine helps reduce fat. *
Specifically using high quality protein such as whey protein contains an extraordinarily high amount of BCAA’s (over 30%). BCAA’s are known as the building blocks of muscle. BCAA’are made up of Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine. Recently it has become known that taking 5 grams of Leucine with a protein shake or protein meal will increase protein synthesis by up to 70%. But the problem is that one can only buy L-Leucine, which is a single amino acid. This creates problems in the digestive tract as the body has trouble digesting single free form amino acids. Therefore, nutrition company’s and research groups that recommend using L-Leucine in hopes to increasing protein synthesis, instruct to take L-Leucine with food (other amino acids). But still this may not be enough for the body to digest and absorb the L-Leucine powder. To solve this problem, ProteinFactory.com is now offering Leucine Peptides. Leucine Peptides are in the form of di and tri peptides, or two or three amino acids linked together. The body absorbs amino acids through the intestinal tract and into the blood stream in the form of di and tri peptides. Our Leucine Peptides are made in the USA from the finest quality whey protein isolate and contains a complete amino acid profile including BCAA’s.
If taken 3 times per day 1 pound will last 30 days.
More Detailed Instructions: Mix 1 tsp of Leucine Peptides with your protein shake or sprinkle on any protein meal. Do not exceed 4 times per day. Best time to use Leucine Peptides is post workout with a hydrolyzed protein like (PeptoPro, or Hydrolyzed 520) and a Carbohydrate. For beginners or those concerned with taste, use Leucine Peptides with one of our Whey Protein Isolates, like Native Whey Isolate or Ultra Amino 97 Whey Isolate
