Essential Amino Acids and Protein Synthesis: Insights into Maximizing the Muscle and Whole-Body Response to Feeding
What causes an increase in protein synthesis?
With an in-depth look at the available literature on the role of EAA/protein nutrition, researchers conclude that "our results indicate that across a large variety of EAA/protein-containing formats and food, large increases in peripheral EAA concentrations are required to drive a robust increase in muscle and whole-body protein synthesis."
