PUBLISHED IN CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS IN NUTRITION (#CDN)... Skeletal Muscle Acute and Chronic Metabolic Response to Essential Amino Acid Supplementation in Hypertriglyceridemic Older Adults
Supplementation with essential amino acids plus arginine is a promising nutritional approach to decrease plasma triglyceride concentrations, which are an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease.
The authors of this study examined the effects of eight weeks of essential amino acids plus arginine supplementation on skeletal muscle basal metabolite concentrations. Moreover they looked at changes in metabolic response to acute essential amino acids plus arginine intake, emphasizing mitochondrial metabolism in adults with elevated triglycerides, to better understand the mechanisms of lowering plasma triglycerides.

Study Published in #AJCN in Altmetric's Top 5% of Scored Research... Later Circadian Timing of Food intake is Associated with Increased Body Fat
Weight gain and obesity have reached alarming levels. Eating at a later clock hour is a newly described risk factor for adverse metabolic health; yet, how eating at a later circadian time influences body composition is unknown. Using clock hour to document eating times may be misleading owing to individual differences in circadian timing relative to clock hour.
The authors of this study found that the consumption of food during the circadian evening and/or night, independent of more traditional risk factors such as amount or content of food intake and activity level, plays an important role in body composition and is associated with increased body fat.
