Isoleucine, one of the Amino Acids, which forms a part of BCAA’s. Isoleucine is known for its ability to increase muscular endurance and the ability to heal better with enabling clotting at the site of the injury. One of the major functions of isoleucine is protein genesis in the body, which means it is a building block for the proteins your body cells make. Isoleucine is also responsible for the production of energy. Isoleucine is broken down into a molecule called acetyl-CoA, which is the same molecule you make as you break down sugars. You then further burn acetyl-CoA to produce carbon dioxide, oxygen and a large quantity of energy. Isoleucine is Important for the synthesis of haemoglobin and other proteins, it also helps in the detoxification of nitrogen wastes. Some food sources high in Isoleucine include animal foods like pork, beef, veal, lamb, chicken, turkey, fish, cheese while plant foods include wheat germ, legumes, seeds and baker’s yeast as high sources of Isoleucine.
