Isoleucine - (Essential Amino Acid - Proteins) - Sources Include most seeds and nuts

Isoleucine is an amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. It is one of three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) alongside leucine and valine. Relative to the other two BCAAs, isoleucine is intermediate for its ability to induce muscle protein synthesis but is able to significantly increase glucose uptake and the usage of glucose during exercise.
