Table 2 Plasma essential amino acid concentrations in sedentary (NonEx) and exercised groups of rats administered water (Control), LEAA (AminoL40; 1 g LEAA/kg), or LEAA + glucose (AminoL40G; 1 g LEAA + 1 g glucose/kg) after exercise

From: Co-ingestion of carbohydrate with leucine-enriched essential amino acids does not augment acute postexercise muscle protein synthesis in a strenuous exercise-induced hypoinsulinemic state

  1. Data are shown as mean ± SEM (n = 6 for the NonEx and AminoL40 groups, n = 5 for the Control group, and n = 7 for the AminoL40G group). Different letters denote significant difference (P < 0.05)
