EAA Zero: muscle recovery and growth
Essential amino acids are those amino acids from proteins that the body cannot synthesize. Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine play a fundamental role and they are the main components of the BCAA's. This type of amino acids are extremely valuable for athletes due to their multiple properties.
- Taking essential amino acids stimulates the signalling of the rapamycin-1 complex and the post-workout protein synthesis. (1)
- Combining physical exercise with EAA's will effectively improve the muscle recovery and growth in athletes. (2)
- Physical exercise and exogenous amino acids are involved in the muscle protein synthesis. The signal to stimulate the protein synthesis is due to the extracellular concentration of one or more essential amino acids. A blend of essential amino acids and carbohydrates stimulates the muscle synthesis effectively after doing physical exercise. (3)
- L-Leucine stimulates the in-muscle protein synthesis and it is closely related to the release of gluconeogenic precursors such as alanine. Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine made up around a third of the muscle protein. (4)
Who can benefit from EAA Zero?
- Those who want to follow a healthy lifestyle.
- People who want a higher amino acid supply.
- All kinds of athletes.
