Branched-chain Amino Acids Supplementation Enhances Exercise Capacity And Lipid Oxidation During Endurance Exercise After Muscle Glycogen Depletion

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 7
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
An increase in fat oxidation (with no changes in plasma fatty acids or blood lactate) was noted and thought to be indicative of glycogen preservation in otherwise healthy males subject to prolonged exercise aimed to deplete glycogen. There was also an enhancement of physical performance by 17.2% (time to exhaustion).
