Title   Proteins and amino acids in postexercise recovery
Full source     Science & Sports, 2004, Vol 19, Iss 5, pp 228-233

Recent data. - Recent evidence suggests an interest for the intake of 
nitrogenous substances during the anabolic post-exercise phase. Modest amounts 
of indispensable amino acids stimulate net protein gain and might contribute to 
long term training adaptations in muscle. Proteins play a subsidiary but 
limited role in glycogen resynthesis. Regarding other functions theoretically 
susceptible to be modulated by specific amino acids, for instance cysteine and 
glutamine, no quantitative evidence exists today demonstrating that amino 
acid-specific supplements would benefit healthy athletes.
