The Effect Of Branched Chain Amino Acids On Psychomotor Performance During Treadmill Exercise Of Changing Intensity Simulating A Soccer Game

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 10
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
7g of BCAA ingested 1 hour prior to a treadmill test (soccer practise simulation) noted that while there were no changes on any measured parameter, that BCAA supplementation was able to preserve cognition in the later stretches of the exercise. The authors hypothesized this was secondary to the fatigue reducing effect, and that this may be useful in sports requiring reaction time and decision making.
