Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and play an important role in sports nutrition.
Essential amino acids: There are a total of 20 amino acids, nine of which are considered essential. Essential amino acids are those that the body cannot produce itself and therefore must be ingested through food. Essential amino acids include histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine.
Importance for muscle building: Amino acids are essential for muscle building and repair. In particular, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which include leucine, isoleucine, and valine, are essential for muscle protein synthesis. These amino acids support muscle building and can help prevent muscle breakdown during intense workouts.
Aminoacid supplementation: In some cases, athletes can take amino acids as dietary supplements to provide the body with additional amino acids. Amino acid supplements may be available in tablet, capsule or powder form. Popular supplements include BCAA preparations, which specifically contain the branched-chain amino acids.
Timing: The timingof amino acid intake can play a role. Taking them before or during exercise can help stimulate muscle protein synthesis during exercise and prevent muscle breakdown. Taking them after exercise can help with muscle recovery and repair.
Natural sources: Amino acids are found in a variety of foods. Protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, chicken, eggs, dairy products, legumes, nuts and seeds contain a variety of amino acids. A balanced diet that includes a variety of protein sources can help provide the body with the amino acids it needs.
It is important to note that a balanced diet containing a variety of macronutrients and micronutrients is always preferable. The use of supplements should be carefully considered and discussed with a nutritionist or physician to ensure that individual needs and goals are met.
