Protein supplements high in the amino acid leucine promote muscle protein synthesis. Dutch researchers combined the results of 22 students that included 680 people, using a statistical technique called meta-analysis.

post workout protein supplementsResults were very encouraging.

Post-exercise protein supplements increased fat-free mass (mainly muscle) and leg press strength. The results were similar in younger and older people. Consuming a supplement after weight training containing approximately 25 grams of protein is an effective way to increase muscle mass and strength in people of any age.
