Default Robb question on a study you did with Tipton

In reading this I have a question. What so you think of the EAA supplements like "Vendetta"?


Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 283: E648-E657, 2002

Elisabet Børsheim, Kevin D. Tipton, Steven E. Wolf, and Robert R. Wolfe

The results of the current study indicate that ~3.5 ± 1.1 g of muscle protein were synthesized during the 3 h after the first drink in one leg, or 7.0 ± 2.0 g in both legs, on the basis of irreversible loss of phenylalanine and the composition of muscle protein. This represents ~27% of ingested EAAs, because each gram of muscle protein synthesized includes both EAAs and NEAAs. When account of the water content of muscle (~73%) is taken, this would represent a net gain of ~26 g of muscle tissue synthesized in response to the drinks. This magnitude of gain in muscle mass would therefore require many weeks of comparable response to become detectable by available means to quantify changes in muscle mass, during which time all variables such as activity and other nutritional intake would have to be absolutely controlled.

Cass-
Different Wolf! I think EAA/BCAA's are pretty legit for PWO nutrition but I'm not familiar with that product.

I know the Poliquin crowd loves PWO BCAA's...this si a central feature of Cordains Paleo diet for Athletes. Seems to really enhance recovery.
