L-Isoleucine is aliphatic amino acids ,one of twenty protein amino acids and one of eight essential for human body, also is branched-chain amino acids. It can promote protein synthesis and improve the level of growth hormone and insulin, to maintain balance in the body, can increase the body's immune function, treat mental disorders, to promote an increase in appetite and the role of anti-anemia, but also with the promotion of insulin secretion. Mainly used in medicine, food industry, protect the liver, liver role in muscle protein metabolism is extremely important. If lack, there will be physical failure, such as the state of coma.

Molecular Formula: C6H13NO2
Scope of Applications
L-Isoleucine is commonly used in parenteral and enteral nutrition. It is used in combination with the other branched chain amino acids to improve the nutritional status of patients with hepatic diseases. BCAAs serve as important fuel sources for skeletal muscle during periods of metabolic stress; BCAAs may promote protein synthesis, suppress protein catabolism and serve as substrates for gluconeogenesis. BCAAs are catabolized in skeletal muscle, stimulating the production of L-alanine and L-glutamine, among other substances.
