  • Leucine, Citrulline or a Non-Essential Amino Acid Mix - Which Amino Acid(s) are Most Effective in Preventing Muscle Loss During an 18h (Intermittent) Fast? (blogspot.com)
  • highly recommendable) Journal Amino Acids , is that they allow for a direct comparison of the magnitude and the mechanism the ingestion of citrulline, leucine or a mix of other non-essential amino acids has on the fractional protein synthesis in skeletal muscle tissue (Tibialis anterior) in a fasted state (18h food deprivation).

  • As I have pointed out in previous posts, here at the SuppVersity, pushing the "protein-anabolic gas-pedal" through the floor (=ingesting huge amounts of leucine on its own) makes no sense if your car has long run out of fuel (=there are no amino acids to synthesize). (blogspot.com)
  • What is surprising, though, is the fact that the actual protein synthetic response in the leucine group fell 10% short of the one that was observed in the tibialis muscle of the rodents which receive an isonutrogenous amount of non -essential amino acids. (blogspot.com)
