Of all three BCAAs, leucine appears to be the most important for stimulating protein. More recent studies have extended the earlier investigation to show that leucine is the most potent of the BCAAs in enhancing mRNA translation of protein synthesis. In contrast to administration of either isoleucine or valine alone, which have no effect on protein synthesis, leucine is unique as it's the most important regulator of protein synthesis in skeletal muscle. 17 In fact, a recent study reported that administration of leucine alone to fasted rats invoked the same stimulation of protein synthesis in skeletal muscle as observed after consumption of a complete meal. 16 Additionally, studies using isolated muscle preparations have reported that leucine alone is sufficient to enhance protein synthesis rates. 27
Acne is often present. Acne conglobata is a particularly severe form of acne that can develop during steroid abuse or even after the drug has been discontinued. Infections are a common side effect of steroid abuse because of needle sharing and unsanitary techniques used when injecting the drugs into the skin. These are similar risks to IV drug abusers with increased potential to acquire blood-borne infections such as hepatitis and HIV/AIDS . Skin abscesses may occur at injection sites and may spread to other organs of the body. Endocarditis or an infection of the heart valves is not uncommon.
Very little really surprises me on the sports supplement market nowadays as I’ve honestly tried it all before and the fact that I rarely use any one product twice should tell you all you need to know. I admit I was initially drawn to Testo Extreme Anabolic by the unique approach it takes to muscular development and I thought it would be fun and interesting as I have not seen anything like this product before. I’m now on my third course using the Testo and Decacore Creatine combo and have consistantly seen improvements in my workouts and physique with each course! My advice? When you finally find something that works for you, stick with it!
