Influence of Amino Acids, Dietary Protein, and Physical Activity on Muscle Mass Development in Humans

Abstract

Ingestion of protein is crucial for maintenance of a variety of body functions and within the scope of this review we will specifically focus on the regulation of skeletal muscle mass. A quantitative limitation exists as to how much muscle protein the body can synthesize in response to protein intake. Ingestion of excess protein exerts an unwanted load to… (More)
