  author={Takashi Abe and Yoshimi Takiguchi and Masahiro Tamura and Jun Shimura and Yamazaki Ken-ichi},
For endurance exercise in swimming mice. 1.8% VAAM (Vespa amino acid mixture) which has the same amino acid-components as hornet (Vespa mandarinia) larval saliva, 1.8% casein amino acid mixture (CAAM). 10% glucose. or amino acid mixtures in which the amino acids were varied while maintaining the same molar ratio as VAAM were administered orally to mice. Mice receiving 1.8% VAAM showed significantly longer maximum swimming times than mice receiving other nutrients. Among these nutrients… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Amino Acid Mixture Identical to Vespa Larval Saliva Increases both Leptin Secretion and Basal Lipolysis in Rat Adipocytes

The results suggest that VAAM may enhance basal lipolysis independent of cAMP productions, but is dependant on leptin secretion from adipocytes themselves, at least in part.

Effects of Gypenosides from Gynostemma pentaphyllum supplementation on exercise-induced fatigue in mice

GGP Supplementation can extend the swimming time for the mice, effectively delay the lowering of glucose in the blood, and prevent the increase in lactate.

Antifatigue activity of water extracts of Toona sinensis Roemor leaf and exercise-related changes in lipid peroxidation in endurance exercise.

The result showed that ETL was found to possess an antifatigue activity, extend the swimming time of the mice, prevent the increase in lactic acid, increasing content of liver and muscle glycogen of mice and may decrease the contribution of exercise-induced oxidative stress.

The result showed that TOE had an anti- physical fatigue effect that enhanced the maximum swimming capacity of mice, effectively delayed the lowering of glucose in the blood, and prevented the increase in lactate and triglyceride concentrations.

Effects of tocotrienol-rich fraction on exercise endurance capacity and oxidative stress in forced swimming rats

Results suggest that TRF is able to improve the physiological condition and reduce the exercise-induced oxidative stress in forced swimming rats.

Effect of red mold rice on antifatigue and exercise-related changes in lipid peroxidation in endurance exercise

The result suggested that the red mold rice supplementation may decrease the contribution of exercise-induced oxidative stress and improve the physiological condition of the rats.

Effects of regular exercise combined with ingestion of vespa amino acid mixture on aerobic fitness and cardiovascular disease risk factors in sedentary older women: A preliminary study

Whether regular exercise combined with oral ingestion of VAAM improves aerobic fitness and cardiovascular disease risk factors in sedentary older women is investigated.

Spirulina platensis extract supplementation attenuates oxidative stress in acute exhaustive exercise: A pilot study

It was concluded that exhaustive exercise could result in oxidative stress and the SPE supplementation increased performance of exhaustive exercise, and it was beneficial in enhancing the antioxidant status and inhibiting oxidative stress induced by acute exhaustive exercise.

Effect of Amino Acid Mixture Intake on Physiological Responses and Rating of Perceived Exertion during Cycling Exercise

It is inferred that ingesting the supplement before starting exercise has a significant effect on the respiratory exchange ratio and ratings of perceived exertion during submaximal sustained exercise for 60 min. but not on oxygen uptake, heart rate, and plasma lactate concentration.



Effect of branched-chain amino acid supplementation on the exercise-induced change in aromatic amino acid concentration in human muscle.

It is suggested that an intake of BCAAs during exercise can prevent or decrease the net rate of protein degradation caused by heavy exercise.

Plasma amino acid and ammonia responses to altered dietary intakes prior to prolonged exercise in humans.

It is suggested that limited carbohydrate availability in association with increased BCAA availability results in enhanced BCAA metabolism during exercise, consistent with the hypothesis that a significant fraction of the NH3 released during a prolonged, submaximal exercise bout is from amino acid catabolism.

Effect of exercise on amino acid concentrations in skeletal muscle and plasma.

There is a significant activation of branched-chain amino acid metabolism with prolonged exercise, and the current data indicate that this is more pronounced in endurance-trained subjects than in untrained controls.

Effects of training on glucose metabolism of gluconeogenesis-inhibited short-term-fasted rats.

There was no measurable glucose recycling in trained or untrained MPA-treated animals either at rest or during submaximal exercise.

Carbohydrate supplementation, glycogen depletion, and amino acid metabolism during exercise.

It is concluded that CHO loading abolishes increases in branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) oxidation during exercise and that part of the ammonia production during prolonged exercise originates from deamination of amino acids.

Reduced running endurance in gluconeogenesis-inhibited rats.

The results indicate that gluconeogenesis is important for maintaining blood glucose levels and for prolonging endurance time during submaximal activity.

Endurance training enhances lactate clearance during hyperlactatemia.

For both control and trained animals, essentially 100% of the 14C infused as lactate was recovered as either glucose or CO2; however, trained animals demonstrated a 25% greater rate of gluconeogenesis.

Plasma amino acid responses of trained athletes to two successive exhaustion trials with and without interim carbohydrate feeding.

CHO replacement had no effect on the mean change scores for any AA from EI to the end of the recovery period and affected only serine, citrulline, glycine and threonine from the end-of- recovery period to EII.

Training improves glucose homeostasis in rats during exercise via glucose production.

The effects of endurance training on glucose homeostasis during exercise was studied in 30-h fasted rats and trained animals demonstrated significantly higher rates of glucose carbon recycling during the final 30 min of exercise.

Amino acid metabolism after intense exercise.

After exercise, whole body protein degradation is not increased, leucine disposal is directed away from oxidative and toward nonoxidative pathways, and forearm protein synthesis is decreased.
