Recent study revealed that ingesting 5.6 g BCAA immediately after training stimulate a 22% greater response of muscle protein synthesis (MPS) compare with a placebo (1). However, ingesting a 20 g dose of whey protein stimulate MPS by 49% compare with a placebo (2).
The effect of ingesting BCAA is 60% less compared with whey protein.
Don’t spend your money buying BCAA.
There is no difference in MPS was observed between 20 and 40 g doses of whey protein. The intake of whey protein stimulate a greater acute response compared with casein and soy protein intakes (2).
The best strategy to increase MPS immediately after exercise is intake 20 g of whey protein.
