Essential Aminos + Carbs Speed up Protein Synthesis

What time is it? It’s Amino time!

Supplementing with a leucine-rich amino acids and carbohydrate combination can increase muscle protein synthesis by triggering important cell-signaling molecules.

Building on a previous study that showed taking an essential amino acid and carbohydrate combination during resistance exercise stimulated muscle protein synthesis, scientists from the University of Texas showed that taking this same solution following resistance exercise further increased muscle protein synthesis.
