Pertaining to anabolism; an anabolic changes, or processes, more or less constructive in their nature.
The building up of proteins from simpler molecules in the body, (such as proteins forming from amino acids). This generative process results in increased lean muscle mass, stronger bones, and a greater energy supply. Anabolic hormones include DHEA, testosterone, and growth hormone.
The phase of metabolism in which simple substances are synthesized into the complex materials of living tissue.
The building up of the body substance; the constructive phase of metabolism by which a cell takes from the blood the substance required for repair and growth, building it into a cytoplasm, thus converting a nonliving material into the living cytoplasm of the cell. This can lead to increased muscle mass, stronger bones, and a greater energy supply. Hormones classified as anabolic consist of DHEA, testosterone, and growth hormone.
A term used to describe the body's tendency to build or construct muscle tissue.
The process by which simple substances are synthesized into the complex tissue of living tissue.
Building up of tissues in the body, or constructive metabolism.
Refers to nutrients or dietary patterns that have a muscle building effect in the body.
Meaning that it builds muscle mass, the opposite of catabolic.
"Muscle building", a general description (rest after training is "anabolic"), the opposite of Catabolic.
of or related to the synthetic phase of metabolism
characterized by or promoting constructive metabolism; "some athletes take anabolic steroids to increase muscle size temporarily"
A type of reaction or series of reactions in which complex molecules are synthesized from simpler ones; the opposite of catabolic.
Relating to the phase of metabolism where simple substances are transformed or synthesized into complex materials of living tissue. Lifting weights at a high level of intensity triggers anabolism.
Referring to the "building up" of tissue, such as muscle growth. [See Metabolism
Literally, "muscle-building"; often mis-understood because of its connection with anabolic steroids, which are banned substances designed to regenerate muscle-tissue at an abnormally fast rate. All "good" physical training should be anabolic in its effect. (See also CATABOLIC)
Pertaining to constructive synthetic metabolic processes by which organisms convert substances into other chemical structures.
Pertaining to the putting together of complex substances from simplier ones, especially to the building of body proteins from amino acids.
When the body is in a state of growth. When in an anabolic state, the body is able to synthesize new muscle tissue.
Building up of tissues in the body. It is a destructive metabolism.
Refers to the actual building process of tissues, mainly muscle, in the body.
Metabolic condition in which new molecules are synthesized (growth).
Affects digestive system and nutrition due to its ability to promote tissue growth, especially the synthesis of proteins. Also able to affect endocrine system and hormone function as tissue growth is largely hormone regulated. to top of page
Pertaining to the putting together of complex substances from simples ones, especially to the building of muscle protein from amino acids.
Anabolic compounds: Allow the conversion of nutritive material into complex living matter in the constructive metabolism.
