My watch list  


Hyperaminoacidemia is an excess of amino acids in the bloodstream (the amino acid pool) which some researchers believe can lead to an increase in both protein synthesis and protein breakdown through protein oxidation, with an overall positive nitrogen balance. A positive nitrogen balance indicating more construction of lean tissue than destruction, leading to an increase in lean mass in the body. Large increases of protein in the diet for the purpose of hyperaminoacidemia for purposes of increases in protein metabolism for the purpose of gaining lean mass is termed the anabolic drive.
