Isoleucine is an essential amino acid found in the human body. It plays an important role in many biochemical reactions, such as creating proteins, enzymes, and hormones. It is also an important component of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that binds oxygen and carries it around the body. Isoleucine is essential for metabolism, providing energy and strength, and for a strong immune system. It is important for the formation of healthy red blood cells and for synthesizing neurotransmitters for proper brain function. Additionally, it is necessary for proper bone and muscle development, as well as wound healing. Isoleucine can be obtained from dietary sources such as eggs, fish, meats, and legumes, or it can be supplemented through vitamins or other supplements.
