Muscle Protein Synthesis

Muscle protein synthesis refers to the biological process of building and repairing muscle tissue.

There’s a constant cycle between muscle protein breakdown (MPB) and muscle protein synthesis (MPS). About 1% of muscle protein is turned over daily.

The rate of protein synthesis of the actual muscle fibers, is a short-term marker of muscle hypertrophy. That’s why quality protein consumption is so important.
