New studies about proteins

The idea that we have to maintain high levels of amino acids in the blood throughout the day is a bit false.

Amino acids take all day

The old school belief was that if you constantly were taking amino acids, were constantly stimulating protein synthesis and muscle building. In other words, if the amino acid levels are elevated blood, protein synthesis rises.

This is not the case. In a study conducted in Texas, amino acids were administered to a group of lifters 30 years old for six hours. They found that almost nothing happened in terms of protein synthesis during the first 30 minutes but then rates increased 2.8 times and stayed that way for two hours before a severe decline – although remaining amino acids levels were the high point beyond two hours.

So constantly keeping your body with amino acids does not mean you’re growing more.

This study was performed with natural athletes.

Effect of amino acids and the use of anabolic steroids

So the interlayer or ingest amino acids between meals can, at some level, further improve anabolism during the day.

The myth of 30g of protein per meal

It is worth repeating that the 30 grams of protein are a myth. The body can easily process when more than 30-60 grams per serving, since the protein is used in many bodily functions not only in protein synthesis.

In fact, I believe that 30 grams per meal for a bodybuilder is a pittance. Ideally, consume between 40-60 grams (depending on the athlete). This will help ensure you get the most out of the temporary blip of protein synthesis. Moreover, the rates of protein synthesis were shown to decline with age, so over lifters 40 may require higher doses for the same bump in protein synthesis.

The researchers found that by a pulse of amino acids between meals, were able to increase protein synthesis without hindering the anabolic effects of real meals. So the interlayer or ingest amino acids between meals can, at some level, further improve anabolism during the day. This will help ensure you get the most out of the temporary blip of protein synthesis.

Exercise and protein synthesis

Eating protein is not the only way to increase muscle protein synthesis. You can easily overload the effects of amino acids on muscle protein synthesis by addition of resistance training.

According to a study of 2013, a protein shake after training had a gradual effect on protein synthesis when the protein is administered in doses of 10, and 20, 40 and 60 grams.
