1. I think this is a valid point. One thing I want to say about less utilization of aminos with whey: just because amino acids gets oxidized, does not mean it did not have a physiological effect on the body prior to oxidation. My lab constantly points this out. The entire RDA is based on maximizing efficiency - the point of intake at which amino acid oxidation starts to rise. But we know that the benefits of amino acids on satiety and muscle growth DO NOT occur until they go beyond this point. So while you would like to maximize effeciency, it is not everything.
2. This was a great study, but it does have a lot of limitations. Mainly, it was in vitro...but I still think it is wise to take anti-oxidant sups, and quite possible that it will improve protein synthesis.
