Has anyone really persued improving anabolic process as this can help improve recovery from inflammation, oxidative stress, improve immune function etc. I think many of us do a few of these things indirectly as alot of treatments cross over. The opposite of anabolism is catabolism which is a necessary process to create energy by breaking down more complex substances for energy but with ongoing stress of things in me/cfs like infections, inflammation etc this process is tipped to far in favour of catabolism. Most of us have hormone profiles that are out of whack which is a good indicator that the anabolic/catabolic process isnt in our favour. So anabolism is about growth and recovery, so adequate rest and protein /nutrition are important for this. Most sports are big into this has it helps improve their performance. Many use things like amino acids(BCAAs) high doses of glutamine, creatine and others. So can others share their personal experience and post some good links that we may find helpful. This isnt a topic i have seen mentioned much on this site but i think an important one and closely related to some of the threads on inflammtion etc that have been posted lately. cheers!!!
