Product Overview

Ready to mix HICA (Leucic Acid) powder. Unflavoured

Alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid, also known as leucic acid, or more commonly abbreviated to HICA, is the result of leucine metabolism in human tissues – and is highly valued by athletes and gym-goers alike.

Why use HICA?

It belongs to the branched chain amino acid leucine, which plays a significant role in supplementing the synthesis of muscle protein, ideal for anyone interested in promoting recovery after intense workouts!

Studies have revealed that athletes who consume alpha-isocaproic acid experienced an increase in lean mass in their lower extremities.[1]

Is this product for me?

If you’re striving to increase lean muscle, while promoting recovery after intense sessions, then HICA is for you!
