Amino acids help against sore muscles

Do you like to train hard, but don’t you like the muscle ache afterwards? Take a shake with essential amino acids. Britisch research has shown that amino acids help against sore muscles. Rugby players and American football players who took water with essential amino acids before and after their work-out had less muscle ache and then their teammates who didn’t take in the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine.

Essential amino acids can’t be created by the human body it selves, so they have to be taking in by eating the right food or drinking the right drinks. They play a big role in our metabolism. Without the amino acids transportation and storage of nutrients within the body wouldn’t happen. Now British research has shown that a special group of these amino acids – branched chain amono acids – help muscles to recover quickly and prevent loss of muscle strength directly after the workout. Leucine, isoleucine en valine are the amino acids that do the trick.

If you want to ‘eat’ your amino acids, you want to eat meat (I don’t, but it contains a lot of amino acids) fish and soy. Lentils and beans are a good source as well.  

If you want to know: essential amino acids are: histidine (sesame, seeds, peanuts), isoleucine (almonds, lentils, rye), leucine (brown rice, beans), lysine (wheat), methionine (cheese, milk), fenylalanine (almonds, sesame, peanuts), threonine (eggs), tryptofaan (bananas, milk, seeds) and valine (wheat, rye, mushrooms (not the white ones).
Non-essential amino acids (the human body can make them) are: alanine, asparagine, cysteïne, cystine, glutamine, tyrosine and hydroxyproline.
