We all know the complete recovery formulas of recovery shakes: one of the more expensive and effective substances for recovering and building your muscles in such a shake is Leucine. That’s why we’ve developed Leucine separately in a capsule. Of course, this isn’t a complete recovery like a recovery shake, but it’s ideal to use after short and non-intensive efforts.

  • 1 Cap = 1 gram leucine 100%
    1 Cap = 1 gram leucine 100%
  • 1 gram leucine = 10 gram protein! 100%

Pro-Leucine consists of pure L-Leucine, which is incredibly effective for both recovering and building muscle mass, aiming to enhance strength and overall fitness. This supplement works exceptionally well for both endurance athletes and strength trainers. Taking leucine immediately after exertion helps expedite the recovery of damaged muscles and reduces muscle soreness after short, non-exhaustive efforts. However, you can also take it before or during exercise to decrease muscle breakdown. Moreover, it will reduce muscle fatigue during exercise while simultaneously helping counteract muscle damage after the exertion. Regular use of Pro-Leucine (from week 3 onwards) will provide an extra boost to your fitness.

1 gram of leucine is equivalent to 10 grams of protein for your muscle recovery. Therefore, Leucine is particularly effective when taken in its pure form. Leucine is an essential amino acid, and proteins are composed of amino acids, supporting the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Why Leucine will work for you

Leucine is a naturally occurring substance in the body. This means that, unlike creatine, you can continuously use it without a decrease in effectiveness. With prolonged use, you may even notice an additional effect, as your body has built up a good reserve. Of course, Leucine cannot be compared to a recovery shake, which provides various proteins, minerals, and vitamins. This product is designed for use after a short-duration and low-intensity effort.

L-Leucine capsules are specially formulated to fully aid in the recovery and rebuilding of your muscles after a physical exertion. L-leucine is the primary among the three BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) and one of the nine essential amino acids. BCAAs (L-leucine, L-valine, and L-isoleucine) make up as much as 40% of the total amino acid content in your muscles. L-Leucine is particularly effective in its pure form, as found in our Pro-Leucine capsules.


When do you use this?

Kristof: The Pro-Leucine should be taken within 45 minutes after the exertion for a boost in your fitness and maximal muscle recovery. It can also be taken before or during the effort to reduce muscle breakdown.

This supplement also reduces muscle fatigue during exercise and minimizes muscle damage afterward. A genuine Pro tip is to use Leucine (2 to 3 grams) before a significant effort. It will break down the initial lactic acid, providing a significant advantage.

– Kristof De Kegel

Kristof: For complete recovery after a prolonged, exhaustive effort, it’s better to opt for our Pro-Elite Recovery shake, which contains 6 grams of L-Leucine along with all the other crucial proteins and nutrients for comprehensive recovery. Taking a recovery shake after shorter, less exhaustive efforts would be too expensive and excessive. That’s why we specifically released L-Leucine in capsule form for this purpose.


Upon intake after training: Depending on the level of effort exerted, take 4 to 8 capsules immediately after the workout with a glass of water.

Note: After competitions or significant athletic challenges, when you feel a greater need for more profound recovery, it’s advisable to use the Pro-Elite Recovery shake.

  • When taken before the workout: Consume 2 grams approximately 30 minutes before the training to stimulate muscle growth.
  • When taken during or after the training, you can ingest an additional 3 to 5 grams during the effort, either midway or in several even doses throughout the entire training or competition.

Ingredients: L-Leucine, Gelatin (Capsule), Magnesium Stearate (Anti-caking agent), Silicon Dioxide (Anti-caking agent).

When do I use a Recovery shake?

You are best off using the Pro Elite Recovery after your intense workouts. It is not necessary on a daily basis. For very short, intense workouts (lasting less than 1 hour) or light workouts, it's better to opt for the Pro Leucine because a full recovery shake is not necessary in those cases.

What is Pro Leucine? is it related to BCAAs ?

Indeed, the Pro Leucine has a similar effect to BCAAs. BCAAs, in fact, are a blend of Leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Full Explanation

Pro-Leucine does indeed have a similar effect to BCAAs. The latter are a mixture of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Leucine is just one of the three BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids), but it is the most potent among them (leucine, isoleucine, and valine). It contributes to significant muscle strength, stimulates protein synthesis, and is essential for building, preserving, and repairing weakened or damaged muscles. Additionally, both leucine and isoleucine assist your body in muscle building and recovery after exertion. Therefore, it is advisable to invest in a supplement with pure leucine if you want to enhance recovery and muscle growth. Furthermore, leucine also promotes increased strength, which is not the case for isoleucine and valine. Leucine is most effective when taken in its pure form.

Is Neapharma suitable for crossfitters?

In short: yes

"Our products are specially developed to optimally support endurance efforts in any sport. Based on the unique demands of crossfit, our Pro-Leucine and Pro-Elite Recovery shake, alongside our drinks and bars for short-term and long-term energy needs, and our gels for short-term energy requirements, can be a particular aid to get the most out of your workouts. They ensure maximum (re)building of your muscles and prepare you optimally for your next strength effort. We strongly recommend leucine instead of creatine because the latter can only be used for 3 to 4 weeks before losing its effectiveness. Leucine, on the other hand, improves your overall fitness even with prolonged use (beyond 3 weeks). Additionally, Leucine is healthier and more effective in the long term for muscle building and recovery."
How can I build endurance after a workout?
Of course, various factors play a role in this. Duration, intensity, sequence, ... but nutrition and recovery also play a crucial role:
  • Building endurance starts during the training; drink enough: a dehydrated body can convert up to 25% less endurance building from a workout.
  • Afterward: Everything is proportional: short workouts versus long workouts. For short workouts, effective endurance building is possible. Then we use Pro Leucine: focus on muscle recovery and building. For long workouts, we aim for complete recovery with Pro Elite Recovery. You can find more information and details on the detail page.
How to get a personalised Fuel plan
At Neapharma, we combine our superior sports nutrition with our own free Fuel Plan App. Utilize the same tools as the professionals, thanks to coach & Performance Manager Kristof De Kegel. The app generates a personalized nutrition plan in seconds. The nutrition plan tells you hour by hour and kilometer by kilometer what you should eat and drink, entirely tailored to yourself and your goals. Thus, your nutrition plan will look entirely different when you go for a training ride or attempt to break a personal best. This app is also suitable for competitive cyclists.
What is the importance of an amino acid for athletes?
"Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins play a crucial role in numerous physiological processes in the body. For athletes, amino acids are particularly important due to their diverse functions that contribute to muscle building, recovery, and overall performance. Here are some functions of amino acids for athletes:"
  1. Muscle Building and Recovery: Amino acids are essential for protein synthesis, which, in turn, is crucial for muscle building and recovery. Particularly, the so-called 'essential amino acids' cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from diet. They play a key role in repairing and building muscle tissue after intense physical exertion.
  2. Energy Production: Amino acids can, under certain conditions, be converted into energy. This can be particularly relevant during prolonged or intense workouts when the glycogen stores in the muscles become depleted.
  3. Immune System Support: Intensive physical activity can temporarily weaken the immune system. Some amino acids, such as glutamine, are involved in supporting the immune system, which can help reduce the risk of infections and illnesses.
From what age can I take supplements?
We often get asked if our supplements can also be used by children. The answer to this is actually simple: yes. All Neapharma products are perfectly suitable for children. However, we would like to emphasize that moderation is key. We also do not advocate for children using recovery shakes or Omega 3 (they are not exactly cheap either). Of course, it is better to give a child an isotonic sports drink during exertion. The body can use an extra boost during any physical activity, and children do sweat as well. Some 13-year-olds even engage in quite intense training for their age, making sports nutrition a necessity for them too. However, if your child is going for a leisurely bike ride for an hour, there is no reason to equip them like a professional athlete.
"What is the 6-carbohydrate strategy?
The 6-carbohydrate strategy is the latest insight from top coach and Performance Manager at the cycling team Alpecin Deceuninck, Kristof De Kegel. He researched which carbohydrates are best used by athletes and what the ratio of these different energy sources is in relation to endurance and strength. He developed a strategy that, when you combine the right sources of carbohydrates at the right time, you can process up to 35% more energy. The key here is alternating between 6 different carbohydrates in the right proportion. Therefore, all Neapharma products have been adjusted since 2023, making us the only brand in the world where this strategy works. To simplify these calculations, Neapharma has created the Fuel Plan App, where your personalized nutrition plan is generated.
What is the difference between Leucine and a Recovery shake?
Leucine helps to recover your muscles and build your endurance during small, non-intensive efforts. A recovery shake is designed for recovery after longer, more intensive exertion.
What is the importance of salts and minerals?
Salts and minerals play a crucial role in the overall health and performance of athletes. These substances, also known as electrolytes, are essential for various bodily functions and can be lost during physical activity through sweating. Here are some reasons why salts and minerals are important for athletes:
  1. Fluid Balance: Electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, help maintain fluid balance in the body. During exercise, excessive sweating can lead to the loss of these electrolytes, which may result in dehydration if not replenished.
  2. Muscle Function: Calcium, potassium, and sodium are crucial for normal muscle function. A proper electrolyte balance is essential to prevent muscle cramps and weakness.
  3. Nerve Function: Electrolytes are involved in transmitting nerve impulses in the body. A balanced electrolyte status is crucial for effective communication between nerve cells, which is important for muscle contraction and coordination.
  4. Energy Production: Various minerals, including magnesium, are involved in cellular-level energy production. Adequate energy production is crucial for sports performance.
  5. Recovery after Exertion: After exercising, it is important to replenish lost electrolytes to promote recovery. This helps reduce muscle soreness, fatigue, and maintains a healthy electrolyte level.
  6. Prevention of Hyponatremia: During prolonged exertion, excessive water intake without sufficient electrolyte intake can lead to hyponatremia, a serious condition where the sodium concentration in the blood becomes too low.
Athletes can replenish electrolytes by consuming sports drinks, dietary supplements, or by eating foods naturally rich in these minerals. It is important to pay attention to individual needs, depending on the intensity and duration of physical activity, climate, and individual factors such as body weight and sweat level. It is recommended to seek advice from a nutritionist or health professional for personalized guidance.
Who is co-founder Kristof De Kegel?
Kristof De Kegel, the Head of Performance at the renowned cycling team Alpecin-Deceuninck and the women's team Fenix-Deceuninck, is also the passionate exercise physiologist behind the innovative Neapharma products. Among the list of athletes are Mathieu van Der Poel, Wout Van Aert, Puck Pieterse, and Stijn De Volder.
