We hypothesize that, by analogy with creatine supplementation, 1) an inverse relationship between urinary excretion and muscle loading is present, and 2) the latter is stimulated by carbohydrate- and protein-induced insulin action. METHODS In study A, the effect of a 5-wk slow-release BA (SRBA) supplementation (4.8 g · d(-1)) on whole body BA retention was determined in seven men… CONTINUE READING
