Efectos de los suplementos de proteína y aminoácidos de cadena ramificada en entrenamiento de fuerza: revisión bibliográfica

Jordi Rabassa-Blanco, Imma Palma-Linares

Resumen


Introducción: Los suplementos de proteína y aminoácidos de cadena ramificada (BCAAs) son consumidos por la población buscando una serie de efectos fisiológicos y metabólicos sobre el rendimiento y recuperación, entre otros. Objetivos: Revisión de las publicaciones más recientes que estudien los efectos del consumo de suplementos de proteína y BCAAs en entrenamiento de fuerza en diferentes parámetros fisiológicos y metabólicos.

Material y métodos: Estudio descriptivo de revisión bibliográfica. Se realizó una búsqueda específica de palabras clave en la base de datos PubMed y estrategia de bola de nieve. Criterios de inclusión: estudios realizados en humanos de ≥ 18 años sin patología, metaanálisis, revisiones sistemáticas y ensayos clínicos controlados aleatorizados en inglés y español relacionados con el consumo de suplementos de proteína y/o BCAAs en entrenamiento de fuerza y sus efectos sobre el daño muscular, respuesta anabólica en la recuperación muscular, ganancia de masa muscular y fuerza, composición corporal y fatiga.

Resultados: 64 estudios identificados mediante la ecuación de búsqueda, 20 cumplieron con los criterios de inclusión. La media aritmética de los sujetos participantes fue igual a (30,59 ± 24,47).

Conclusiones: Los suplementos de proteína podrían tener un efecto positivo en el aumento del rendimiento y la masa muscular, pero hacen falta más estudios para esclarecer su posible beneficio sobre la composición corporal, la fatiga, la atenuación y reducción del dolor y daño muscular. La leucina tiene efecto en el aumento de la masa muscular y su función en población de edad avanzada. Los BCAAs podrían actuar sobre la atenuación de la fatiga central y en la mejora del rendimiento.
