Isoleucine modulates blood glucose levels and scientists propose that this indicates greater uptake of glucose in skeletal muscle. Insulin acts anabolically on protein metabolism by stimulating protein synthesis and inhibiting its breakdown. Isoleucine has been demonstrated to have glucose metabolism-regulating functions similar to insulin. Glutamine and alanine are synthesized from isoleucine and it keeps a balance among the BCAAs.
