Title: Does the human body require more proteins during the day or night?
Post by: tkadm30 on 04/07/2018 09:14:30
Hi,

How exactly does sleeping may enhance protein synthesis? [1]

Could it be possible that light cycles have any effects on protein metabolism? [2] 

What do you think?

Background theory: Plants require proteins to build cells during the night. I assume the same biochemical requirements are present in human protein metabolism.   :)

I have read somewhere that our handling of proteins is different when we are asleep. That would make sense as it would allow repair processes without the interference of activity.
Canít recall reference, but will keep an eye out.
