Explain the L-Leucine Claim


#1

Ok I love Biotest L-Leucine, and I'm fine that on the front of the tub it says something about increasing the anabolic properties of food by up to 500%.

but would somebody explain "jack up muscle protein synthesis by up to 70!"???

up to 70 what?!


#2

Percent. 70%


#3

ok they need to write that then.

right now i’d be happier if they told me that it increased protein synthesis by over nine thousand


#4

My tubs of it say 70 percent


#5
