KEY POINTS • Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) are essential amino acids (EAA) that play several important roles in muscle metabolism. • The BCAA – especially leucine – are critical for stimulation of molecular signaling that leads to muscle protein synthesis and muscle protein breakdown. However, there is no research that has assessed the response of muscle protein synthesis to BCAA (or leucine) ingestion alone (without any other nutrients and/or not as part of an intact protein) following… CONTINUE READING
