The article written on Leucine recommends:
'Furthermore, it seems the change in Leucine concentration in the blood may be more important than the actual amount of Leucine in the blood, so you don't want to take Leucine non-stop.(1) It's better to take a scoop of it (about 5 grams) with a meal, let blood levels drop, and then take another scoop about 4 hours later.'
But Dr. Tim Ziegenfuss suggests:
'Here are two possibilities: 1) spike each meal with ~2.5-5 grams (0.5 to 1 scoop) of leucine and continue taking 4-6 BCAA tabs in between meals; or 2) eat one Ã?Â¢??normalÃ?Â¢?? mixed meal every 4-6 hours and then supplement with Ã??Ã?Â½ scoop of leucine (2.5 g) + 3 BCAA tabs b/t meals. All things being equal, the net effect on body comp would probably be very similar from both approaches since they both yield a total leucine intake of ~ 40g/day. Personally, I like the first one better b/c I think most guys do not get optimal amts of leucine in every meal.'
These comments contradict each other.
Is it best to take BCAA in between meals or should we let blood leucine levels drop as much as possble in between meals?
