CheckPoint– Protein Article Search Amino Mixers is an article that talks about how when particular types of amino acids are mixed together they will jumpstart the human body in order to take advantage of the synergistic effect. Stoppani believes that a lot of studies have actually showed that when “combined these three amino acids can boost an athlete’s physical performance” (2006). For example, glutamine and arginine can help each other in the revival of tired muscles, limit muscle break down after powerful workouts, and assists in strengthening of the body’s ability to carry oxygen through the blood stream in professional athletes. Amino acids are very important for the growth of muscles as well as assisting in the body’s fuel source during extreme training sessions.

Unformatted text preview: Leucine, isoleucine and valine are three amino acids that supply the body with energy. 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). So in conclusion, when athletes use these three amino acids before, during and after an intense training session, they can limit fatigue, muscle damage, and also assist in muscle recovery and development.
