Athletes are often conflicted about which types of protein should be consumed and at what times… Good news –– the data suggests that a full spectrum of amino acids is necessary for optimal muscle tissue repair and building. Yes, the three BCAAs will provide a spike in muscle protein synthesis (MPS), but if the body doesn’t have the building blocks it needs to actually repair the muscle tissue, then the MPS spike will ultimately do nothing for muscle growth.
Remember, the nine essential aminos are called "essential" for a reason - you must get them in via diet or supplementation since your body cannot synthesize them itself!
A full spectrum protein profile will promote an anabolic environment for a longer period of time, as increased protein in the body will prolong the muscle protein synthesis effect. If we do not have protein in our system to spike muscle protein synthesis (MPS), we lose out on possible gains and muscle building effects.
