    I don't know anyone taking that and it contains a number of excipients it is best to avoid, including the amino acid l-leucine. Ray Peat advises against taking individual amino acids and has said this about leucine, in particular.

    Glygemia, starch, and sugar in context

    Ray Peat recommends cynoplus and cynomel. He considers the excipients in NDT supplements to be problematic.
    You can order it from Farmica Del Nino

    A number of forum members have reported good success using a NDT supplement called thiroyd. You an order it from Pim Pom Product

    Consider the scale. How much leucine is present? If it's 1/50[sup]th[/sup] what is in your breakfast (or lunch or whatever) does it really matter? Leucine is pretty common in protein containing foods. Maybe this supplement has other problems, but a small bit of a common amino acid compared to your overall daily consumption may not be very important.
