Increasing Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) is all the rage nowadays. But instead of guzzling down protein every few hours to drive MPS, maybe you can just stay in ketosis, instead….. ——————————————— Over the last thirty years several labs have shown that ketones can curb inflammation associated decreases in muscle cell anabolism. (e.g. ketones are anticatabolic.) This new review published by Andrew Koutnik & @dominic.dagostino.kt explores some new mechanisms and details about how ketones influence the anabolic balance in muscle tissue.
