Leucine vs HICA

  1. Leucine vs HICA


    As the title suggests, what amount of Leucine would be equivalent to 1g HICA or lets say for instance, the amount in 1 scoop alphamine.

    We know that HICA has been a very good ingredient in terms of body comp in Alphamine and for those on an AlphaBreak still want to preserve muscle, but in turn, not produce too much glucose so that we are tapping into stores and still have enough protection against breakdown that occurs.

  3. I don't think we can try equivalents since HICA and Leucine may not act via exactly the same mechanism, but 45-65 mg/kg LBM leucine is a good dose

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    I use them together in between meals every 3 hours. I've only ever used it like this and recover is amazing along with muscle maintenance

  5. I've only recently started using HICA. I really like it, I've been using Leucine off and on for a couple of years, but the addition of HICA has been great.
