A protein-leucine supplement increases branched-chain amino acid and nitrogen turnover but not performance.

Abstract

PURPOSE This study aimed to determine the effect of postexercise protein-leucine coingestion with CHO-lipid on subsequent high-intensity endurance performance and to investigate candidate mechanisms using stable isotope methods and metabolomics. METHODS In this double-blind, randomized, crossover study, 12 male cyclists ingested a leucine/protein/CHO/fat… (More)
