Protein Article Search The article Amino Mixers discusses how when certain types of amino acids are integrated they will activate the human body to take advantage of the synergistic effect. According to Stoppani numerous studies have proven that when “combined these three amino acids can boost an athletes physical performance” (2006). For instance, arginine and glutamine can assist in the revival of tired muscles, decrease muscle break down after intense workouts, and helps strengthens the body’s ability to carry oxygen throughout the blood stream in experienced athletes. Amino acids are also extremely important for muscle growth as well as aiding in the body’s fuel source during training sessions.

Glutamine is the most readily available amino acid in the muscles and is essential to muscle function and helps muscles cells to be more efficient, create aerobic fuel, produce bicarbonate, and it even supplies energy to the immune and digestive systems (Stoppani, 2006). In conclusion, when athletes unite these three amino acids before and after intense workouts they can decrease fatigue and muscle damage, in addition to muscle recovery and development.
