    how much amino acids can the body absorb per day.

    Anyone know how much amino acids the body can absorb per day?
    How much of each is optimal per day?
    Is there a minimum of each that should be consumed per day?

    Thanks in advance and I'll rep anyone that helps out. Any links to studies would be appreciated as well. Anything I searched for turned up supplement companies promoting bcaa supplements.

    Eat 1g/lbs of protein a day. Get it from varied sources.

    Congratulations, you have achieved your amino acid requirements for the day.

    So the individual aminos don't really matter, it's just your overall protein intake that is important?

    Of course they matter, otherwise bodybuilders wouldn't be so concerned about getting most of their protein requirement from "complete" sources.

    As above, if you eat to your requirement of protein every day, and get it from a wide variety of animal sources, you're doing just about everything you can, and need, to do.




    If you want to dig deeper, Google "Dr.Layne Norton Leucine study."
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    As long as the sources are varied, yes.

    EG if you ate only 90 slices of bread for your protein for a few weeks, you may be lysine deficient.
