Amino acids provide energy?

Nov 24th 2015 at 11:45 PM

There are still quite a few misconceptions regarding the use of muscle contraction and energy sources during high intensity weight training. When executing repetitive workouts involving more power, a substantial proportion of energy comes from sources other than carbohydrates.

Then when muscles contract, they tap deposits of adenosine triphosphate (ATP, a vital substance for the processes all cells, the only form of energy used on the physiological activity) in the first seconds

The compound used for refilling these deposits is Creatine Phosphate (CP). For this reason, creatine supplements have taken so widespread in the world of bodybuilding and weight training to those who have. Creatine is composed of three amino acid arginine, methionine and glycine.

Therefore, to maintain levels of creatine phosphate and adenosine triphosphate grown, we need these three amino acids to be at appropriate levels in the blood. It is true that amino acids creatine may be provided by food classic but the growth levels in the blood is much slower because of digestion, that besides fats and carbohydrates which often come bundled and are not always necessary .

So free forms of amino acids or a combination of amino acids and creatine can provide direct energy source for strength and power.

Amino acids help you lose weight?

To lose weight, two processes must occur: first, should be accelerated mobilization and circulation of stored fats in the body and secondly, fats must be transported and converted into energy in the mitochondria.

A number of nutrients can support this conversion of fat into energy and amino acid including methionine which, in sufficient quantities, can improve the transport and metabolism of fats. When we are in the period of weight loss, defining and try to maintain the low calorie, supplements of amino acids, including BCCA's and glutamine, can help to compensate for the loss of the calories in food and also supports our muscles, liver and immune system, essential elements to optimize body composition.

Also carnitine is another supplement found in many beverages and supplements for room that is involved in fat metabolism. Carnitine prevents fat storage by transporting the mitochondria of cells, where it is further transformed into energy. Carnitine bring benefits to those who Heart disease sufferers.

Tyrosine also has some beneficial effects on weight loss, primarily because it stimulates the production and release of catecholamines, hormones and initiates fat burning metabolism.

Along with this benefit for weight loss, supplements tyrosine can prevent the development of an intolerant inhibitoarele appetite, thus easing your work when you try to drastically reduce your calories. Equally, tyrosine improves appetite inhibitoarelor effects, making smaller doses to AICA more significant. Often, tyrosine, phenylalanine is used with the production of catecholamines.

Leucine, in addition to start-up this protein synthesis and maintenance of muscle mass (which already improves metabolism, thus burning fat), manages and prolong the feeling of fullness.

A 2006 study showed that supplements of leucine accompanied by diet lead to a drop of up to 22.4% higher than if only a diet is followed.


Sedative effect helps weight loss because it regulates the sleep hormone levels and insulin levels thus assuring proper metabolism of glocozei. And as you probably know, lack of sleep leads and increase appetite.
