Introdução: A proteína tem importante papel na hipertrofia, pois auxilia como substrato para síntese muscular e energia para a realização da contração muscular, sendo importantes componentes na base dos alimentos. Na hipertrofia são necessários os aminoácidos essenciais. A oferta de nutrientes antes, durante e pós exercício físico, é um agente primordial na resposta de adaptações musculares ao treinamento. Objetivo: Apontar os mecanismos no processo de hipertrofia muscular, mostrar através de estudos a diferença na resposta anabólica diante da suplementação de proteína de origem animal e vegetal. Materiais e métodos: Foram incluídos no estudo somente ensaios clínicos randomizados, meta-análises e revisões sistemáticas realizados em humanos, publicados nos últimos 10 anos. Conclusão: Os resultados apontam para maior síntese naqueles que utilizam a suplementação a partir da proteína de origem animal.
