NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:

 

This placebo-controlled study examined if supplementing trained cyclists with branched amino acids during training season affected select body composition, performance, and immune variables. Cyclists received either 12 g/day (6 g/d L-Leucine, 2 g/d L-Isoleucine and 4 g/d L-Valine) of either branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs, n = 9) or a maltodextrin placebo (PLA, n = 9) over a 10-week training season.

A significant interaction existed for body mass-normalized relative peak power (19% increase in the BCAA group pre- to post-study, p=0.01), and relative mean power (4% increase in the BCAA group pre- to post-study, p=0.01).

A significant interaction for neutrophil number existed (p=0.04), as there was a significant 18% increase within the PLA group from the pre- to post-study time point (p=0.01). Chronic BCAA supplementation improves sprint performance variables in endurance cyclists.

 

Effects of chronic BCAA supplementation on Wingate variables in cyclists

Effects of chronic BCAA supplementation on Wingate variables in cyclists

Pre-study (pre) and 10-week post-study (post) Wingate variables.

panel a: A group × time interaction was observed for peak power (p = 0.02), and the BCAA group increased peak power by 20 % compared to the pre-study time point (**p = 0.01) .

panel b: A group × time interaction was also observed for relative peak power (p = 0.01), and the BCAA group increased relative peak power by 19 % compared to the pre-study time point (**p = 0.01) .

panel c: A group × time interaction was observed for mean power (p = 0.01), and the BCAA group increased mean power by 4 % compared to the pre-study time point (**p = 0.01) .

panel d: No group × time interactions was observed for relative mean power (MP).

 

Given that BCAA supplementation blunted the neutrophil response to intense cycling training, BCAAs may benefit immune function during a prolonged cycling season.
