Herbs To Increase Protein Synthesis
Anything other than exercise, sleep, and protein that increase protein synthesis? I've heard ginseng and ginger increase protein synthesis.
I'm very confused :does sarcoplasmic hypertrophy requires testosterone and protein synthesis process? If not how muscle sarcoplasm is increased?
Body building ;: Exercise build up muscle saroplasm. Sarcoplasmic hypertrophy essentially means enlargement of muscle cells ; hence size of muscles. Sarcoplasm is the basic raw material of muscle cells in which all the other cellular material is embedded. It requires adequate protein intake. Your natural body testosterone suffices ; no extra is needed, in fact can be dangerous. ...Read more
Does ginger root increase protein synthesis? Does ginseng increase growth hormone or testosterone?
No: Neither one does either. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more
Sulbutamol (Beta2 androgenic Agonist), if consumed before weightlifting, does it burn fat and increase protein synthesis? Many studies on animals onl
IsB2 adrenergic receptor agonist usually used for relief of bronchospasm in asthma and COPD marketed as Ventolin or Proventil (albuterol). It is also used in Obstetrics to delay premature labor and lowers potassium in the blood.
Report shows it burn fat and increase performance of athletes. The drug's bronchodilating effect may have improved respiratory adaptation at the beginning. Of

I lifted heavy weights yesterday. I only slept 4 hours. Since protein synthesis is elevated for 24 hours, does it mean my training efforts was wasted?
Not really: GTP has more to do with second messenger systems for hormones. ATP is your energy currency. ...Read more
Antibiotics: Yes. Great google question. How do antibiotics work? ...Read more
Does caffeine (100-120 milligrams) inhibits protein synthesis completely? I only have one strong coffee a day, morning or before lifting weights.
Disappointing: Despite a lot of hope -- and a lot of bogus stuff online -- nobody's been able to show that a diet rich in antioxidants prevents or treats any common illness, slows aging, or slows the normal background mutation rate. This may not be what you, or your teacher, want to hear. But I'm afraid it's the truth. Antioxidants are probably the greatest disappointment in medicine in recent times. ...Read more
Does seroquel/ quetiapine lets say 50-75 mg. Affects glycogen synthesis or protein synthesis? I asked my doctor he said "i don't know".
Pretty obscure: Question. I'm not surprised your doctor didn't know. I looked for information myself. I STILL don't know. What literature I found was dense, difficult to comprehend and contradictory. ...Read more
Why there is hyperlipidemia in liver disease despite decrease level of protein synthesis in such case?
No: If you don't metabolize your lipids, they will accumulate in your blood. ...Read more
Will nicotine (in the form of ecig not cigarette) cancel out the effects of protein synthesis and building muscle when bodybuilding?
First, muscle is: Basically protein. So why would you want to negate protein synthesis if you are building tissue. Second nicotine whether you eat it, inhale I one way of another or rub it on is still nicotine. Nicotine is a stimulant and released some additional proteins and neurotransmitters in your body. Nicotime is an addictive drug with many unhealthy side effects. ...Read more
SEROQUEL"quetiapine"raises prolactin levels, does that means protein synthesis is inhibited completely? Or insignificantly? Will it affect muscle growt
Not likely: Quetiapine has the least propensity to raise prolactin levels (hyperprolactinemia) and therefore is likely to have little or insignificant effects on muscle growth. However, individuals vary in their response to medications and hyperprolactinemia is considered a rare side effect of Quetiapine. You could request labs to measure your prolactin levels. Great question! ...Read more
Everything: You eat is broken down into small building blocks and metabolized into calories of energy. Your body then uses this energy to generate proteins, fats, carbohydrates or whatever else it needs to manufacture. Insulin is an anabolic hormone which does stimulate protein synthesis, but increasing your Insulin levels does not lead to muscle building. ...Read more
Are cephalosporin and chloramphenicol antibacterial antibiotics that target cell wall and protein synthesis?
Does caffeine inhibits protein absorption in the stomach? Does it affect protein synthesis? To what extent?
No evidence of this.: Caffeine should not affect protein absorption much. Since caffeine can cause things to move faster through the digestive tract, theoretically the time available to digest and absorb nutrients is decreased. However, the body overall is very good as digesting and absorbing protein, so this change in speed should not affect much. ...Read more
