Results: Body composition and the concentrations of urinary metabolites were not affected by BCAA supplementation, whereas clearance of plasma lactate after recovery from exercise was enhanced by BCAA supplementation (P< 0.05). Plasma aspartate concentration was increased (P< 0.05), whereas plasma glutamine, hypoxanthine and uric acid concentrations were decreased (P< 0.05) by BCAA supplementation. Conclusions: The findings suggest that BCAA supplements not only provided additional substrate to meet the …
