A new dileucine ingredient that leads to over 40% more muscle building potential than leucine alone is being commercialized by start-up Ingenious Ingredients, with the company already “vetting exclusive top-tier distribution and marketing partners”.
Supplementing breakfast with a medical nutrition drink of leucine-enriched whey protein, vitamin D, and carbohydrates increased post-meal muscle protein synthesis among older men, researchers at the University of Clermont Auvergne found.
A combination of amylopectin and chromium may double the muscle protein synthesis rate compared to what was seen when using whey protein alone, says a new study using Nutrition 21’s patented Velositol ingredient.
Protein from soy or from whey is equally effective for synthesis of
muscle protein after endurance training, suggests an animal study
that may challenge the perception that athletes should avoid soy if
reproducible in humans.
