    Question Amino Acids good or bad?

    I see good and bad information regarding amino acid supplementation. Is is true that elevation of amino acids cause insulin resistance? I thought insulin resistance is when the body's insulin is all outta wack. Well insulin is the driver for amino acids to enter the cell right. So does the insulin spike really matter on a grand scale after supplementation of AA for someone who is trying to increase insulin sensitivity? I thought AA increase nitrogen retention when provided around the clock??? The only thing that can occur is gluconeogenesis when depleted of glucose. But if one is doing strength training with hiit, this sounds like a good thing to spare muscle tissue. Right? Not to mention the use of glucose for superior brain development. I also believe their is fatty acid gluconeogenesis. I am I on the right track?

    Distraction is an obstruction for the construction.

    “The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultraviolence.”

    Most free form aminos are insulinogenic, but taken periworkout, you're fine since exercise temporarily makes you more insulin sensitive.

    Insuinogenic enough to decrease insulin sensitivity?

    or

    Insulinogenic enough to stimulate insulin to reuptake glucose into the tissue cells?

    Not even close. People become insulin resistant due to chronically high body fat and little to no activity over a very long period of time.
    Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it.

    Guys, Amino Acids are loaded in Meat. You are getting tons of Amino acids. You are over analyzing amino acids. This is what builds or preserves your muscle. You cannot avoid it. Amino Acid powders is a waste of money and you are just making your pocket lose weight.


    Below on the left is the amount of amino acids in only 3 ounces of chicken breast (25 grams of protein). The numbers on the right is the amount in a typical Amino acid supplement.

    Note, BCAA consist of only Isoleucine, Leucine, Valine. I bolded the amounts in 3 ounces of chicken. The BCAA powder(average price $30) is exactly the same amount as the below 3 oz chicken breast, which is half of a chicken breast and only 25 grams of Protein and in a typical Keto diet, we eat about 160 grams.

    This means in one day of eating your required protein, and beef has more amino acids, Its like eating a half of tub of BCAA powder.

    3 oz Chicken Breast Amino Acid Supplement
    390 mg Tryptophan .55 mg
    1412 mg Threonine 35 mg
    1765 mg Isoleucine 24 mg
    2509 mg Leucine 52 mg
    2836 mg Lysine 169 mg
    925 mg Methionine 9 mg
    428 mg Cystine .55 mg
    1328 mg Phenyalanine 37 mg
    1128 mg Tyrosine 6 mg
    1659 mg Valine 41 mg
    2015 mg Arginine 129 mg
    1037 mg Histidine 11 mg
    1823 mg Alanine 160 mg
