Zetpil™ Leucine Suppository
- Leucine is the only dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis as well as reducing muscle loss.
- Leucine can create a tremendous boost to high-intensity athletic regimens aimed at building muscle and reducing post-exercise recovery time.
- Leucine supplementation can help turn on the body’s switch to build muscle and spare muscle when dieting.*
- May help prevent chronically-ill patients or those with age- or disease-related muscle loss.]

Zetpil™ Suppository Advantage
Zetpil™ delivers nutrition via the rectum with the use of suppositories that have a unique, all- natural formulated base that has revolutionized not only this mode of delivery, but also the ability to obtain nutrients in a far more efficacious method. These suppositories are a result of combining natural ingredients with a non-irritating, rapid melting (5-6 minutes), readily absorbable (superior retention), antioxidant base material (free radical scavenging ability) and delivers the nutrients directly into the bloodstream in less than 20 minutes in a highly effective manner. Oral supplements are exposed to the hazards of stomach acid, digestive enzymes, food-related breakdown, first pass metabolism, and other bioavailability issues in the gastro-intestinal system.
Additionally, many raw materials simply have a very low bioavailability, and only achieve around 10% or less (commonly <1%) absorption rates, even if the patient is in optimal health condition. Compromised health, age, or certain conditions that result in an inability to take oral nutrients often preclude these patient populations from obtaining the necessary nutrition to stay healthy which often exacerbates chronic health issues.
Zetpil™ suppositories are a NOW solution to delivering the necessary nutrients to patients, on a daily basis, that is both easy, comfortable and cost effective. The safety and noticeable effectiveness of these products will far outweigh any initial hesitation you have regarding this mode of delivery.
What is Leucine?
Leucine is an essential branched chain amino acid, but one the body cannot synthesize and therefore it must be ingested, usually as a component of proteins. It is the most abundant of the three branched chain amino acids in muscles, and therefore acts as the primary “fuel” for our muscular system. Leucine is the only dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and also potently activates signaling pathways responsible for regulating cell growth and tissue building.
It is the level of amino acids in the blood that directly boosts protein synthesis in muscles. Leucine, in particular, is the most capable of stimulating protein synthesis as well as reducing muscle loss. Consequently, leucine supplementation is not only advantageous for athletes, but also to prevent age- or disease-related muscle loss.
