Essential Amino Acids Responsible for Muscle Anabolism
"Nutritional supplementation may be used to treat muscle loss with aging (sarcopenia). However, if physical activity does not increase, the elderly tend to compensate for the increased energy delivered by the supplements with reduced food intake, which results in a calorie substitution rather than supplementation. Thus, an effective supplement should stimulate muscle anabolism more efficiently than food or common protein supplements. We have shown that balanced amino acids stimulate muscle protein anabolism in the elderly...." ~ Elena Volpi et al., American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 78, No. 2, 250-258, August 2003.
Amino Acid Supplements Effective in Increasing Muscle Performance
"This study examined 10 weeks of resistance training and the ingestion of supplemental protein and amino acids on muscle performance and markers of muscle anabolism. Nineteen untrained males were randomly assigned to supplement groups containing either 20g protein (14g whey and casein protein, 6g free amino acids) or 20g dextrose placedbo ingested 1h before and after exercise for a total of 40g/d. Participants exercised 4 times/wk using 3 sets of 6-8 repetitions at 85-90% of the one repetition maximum. Data were analyzed with two-way ANOVA (p<0.05). The protein supplement resulted in greater increases in total body mass, fat-free mass, thigh mass, muscle strength, serum IGF-1, IGF-1, mRNA, MHC 1 and lla expression, and myofibrillar protein. Ten-wks of resistance training with 20g protein and amino acids ingested 1h before and after exercise is more effective than carbohydrate placebo in up-regulating markers of muscle protein synthesis and anabolism along with subsequent improvements in muscle performance." ~ D.S. Willoughby, J.R. Stout and C.D. Wilborn. Biomedical and Life Sciences Volume 32, Number 4,467-477.
Advantages of Amino Acid Supplementation
To fully allow for tissue repair it is necessary to derive all the essential amino acids to facilitate the muscle building process.* This is why proteins that include every essential amino acid are known as "Complete" proteins. Proteins that do not contain every essential amino acid are known as "Incomplete" proteins and are lower in quality in terms of aiding muscle growth. Important Amino acids such as L-arginine (for increasing growth hormone levels and improving blood flow), L-glutamine (for muscle recovery and the immune system), the BCAA's (for tissue repair and protein synthesis) can all be found in one place, along with many other amino acids that have important processes in the human body.
