Amino Acids are the building blocks of muscles, and they are essential to help create and maintain positive nitrogen balance, which is important for new muscle growth. There are eight essential amino acids, which are amino acids that the body cannot produce itself and that you therefore have to take in
Glutamine is viewed as the ninth essential amino acid for athletes. That’s because at least 80% of your muscles consist of glutamine. Glutamine is so important that if you don’t take in a sufficient amount of it, your body will simply break off other amino acids in order to produce glutamine.
Leucine is the most important Branched Chain Amino Acid (BC AA). Muscle cells respond to leucine in a special way. The more leucine the muscle cell finds, the more intensely the anabolic signal molecule IRS-1 is triggered. In concrete terms, this means that the more leucine is in the muscle cell, the more pure muscle mass is built. New studies have shown that BCAA supplementation increasemuscle retention and maximize fat loss. BCAA supplementation disrupts the production of catabolic proteins such as atrogin-1 and MuRF1. This indicates that the muscle cell experiences less stress, which is seen even more clearly in the measurements of the stress hormone creatinine kinase several hours after training.
