Effects of Supplementation on Blood Fatigue Factors

Effects of Supplementation with BCAA and L-glutamine on Blood Fatigue Factors and Cytokines in Juvenile Athletes Submitted to Maximal Intensity Rowing Performance SUMMARY: This article looked at the amount of lactate, phosphorus, ammonia, and creatine kinase in blood after an intense workout, as well as the amount of blood cytokines (IL-6, IL-8, IL-15). Five subjects… Continue reading Effects of Supplementation on Blood Fatigue Factors

BCAAs and muscle protein synthesis in humans: myth or reality?

Branched-chain amino acids and muscle protein synthesis in humans: myth or reality? SUMMARY: This study is an article review on whether or not consuming BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) alone was enough to promote muscle growth. Muscle protein is constantly being synthesized and broken down (anabolism, catabolism). Amino acids in blood plasma come from digested… Continue reading BCAAs and muscle protein synthesis in humans: myth or reality?
