Broad spectrum amino acids better digested through bacterial supplementation

This randomized, double-blind, crossover study recruited healthy men (n = 14) and women (n = 16) between the ages of 18–55 years of age. Participants were assigned to ingest 13 daily 25-g doses of a milk protein concentrate or an identical dose of milk protein concentrate plus a probiotic formulation. Blood plasma samples were assayed for concentration of 20 different amino acids. Results showed that a wide variety of amino acid concentrations in the blood and absorption rates were increased when ingested alongside probiotic supplementation. This proves to be an important finding for individuals who have compromised digestion, particularly for the elderly and those who require higher protein intakes.
