Universal Nutrition Atomic 7 - 4 grams of leucine per serving: Leucine is King

This maybe the perfect amino acid muscle building formula and a awesome price!

Leucine is the key to the stimulation of protein synthesis which simply means building muscle protein. Isoleucine and Valine support leucine and make up the BCAAs. This formula gives you the 4 grams recommended by Layne Norton for jumpstarting the mTOR pathway to muscle building.

Isoleucine - prevents muscle protein deterioration during exercise.

Valine - fuel for muscle building reactions and used in muscle protein synthesis

Glutamine helps support the digestive system, immune system, growth hormone production, muscle building and muscle glycogen stores. Speeding recovery and sparring muscle.

Citrulline Malate converts to arginine then nitric oxide in the body and also allows the detoxification of ammonia. Malate is a key controller of aerobic ATP production rates. Combined, these two promote immense benefits. Active individuals may enjoy added energy production in aerobic exercise and decreased muscle soreness.

Taurine - pulls fluid in the muscle expanding the tissue creating greater potential for growth.
