Exercise-induced muscle damage is reduced in resistance-trained males by branched chain amino acids: a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study
It is well documented that exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) decreases muscle function and causes soreness and discomfort. Branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation has been shown to increase protein synthesis and decrease muscle protein breakdown, however, the effects of BCAAs on recovery from damaging resistance training are unclear.
There is very little specific validated information available in relation to the human metabolic pathways of both amino acids and whole proteins in regard to NNU, gluconeogenesis, catabolism and effects upon body composition. The pathway of substrate metabolism often affects hormonal levels and responses in a cascade or matrix manner rather than a simple linear action/reaction scenario that is often assumed supplemental and pharmaceutical preparations.
