The Increase of Amino Acids in Muscles 

Did you know that there is a relationship between amino acids and muscle increase? Here we explain it.

It is important to have high levels of amino acids in the blood to promote muscle protein synthesis and avoid catabolism. Amino acids in the blood increase after protein consumption.

A review of studies conducted by McMaster University in Canada concluded that protein supplements improve the effect of weight training; this occurs even in people who habitually consume low amounts of protein.

High-protein foods increase body weight and lean mass but do not increase body fat.

Factors affecting protein synthesis in muscles include dose, source, and timing of protein intake.
