Consuming a complete nutrition drink fortified with EPA and BCAA for three weeks may increase muscle mass and strength in elderly with inadequate protein intake, according to a new randomised blinded placebo-controlled trial.
Barcelona-based Bioiberica has reported that its Mobilee-branded hyaluronic acid matrix ingredient for mobility may play a role against sarcopenia by boosting muscle cell size and production, and protecting against muscle damage.
A new review by authors from Parma, Italy, has explored the role of gut microbiota as a mediator of the myoprotective effects associated with key polyphenolic compounds, finding that their interaction with gut microbes alters effectiveness against age-related...
There is compelling evidence to support intake of leucine-enhanced amino acid supplements alongside low-level exercise to reduce sarcopenia in older female haemodialysis (HD) patients, according to latest research.
Taking protein supplementation with resistance exercise training has shown to shorten the time needed to acquire normal speed walking speed in elderly suffering from knee osteoarthritis and sarcopenia, according to findings from a 12-week study.
Diet-derived carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin may help mitigate frailty risk and age-related declines in musculoskeletal health due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, according to a study published in the journal Experimental Gerontology.
A “groundbreaking” dileucine ingredient that boosts muscle protein synthesis much faster and to a greater extent that leucine, ‘the gold-standard’ amino acid for muscle, will hit shelves in a consumer product , the co-founder of Ingenious Ingredients...
Supplementation with Lacticaseibacillus casei 63 (L. casei 63) may help reduce sarcopenia in frail elderly people by promoting insulin sensitivity, metabolic efficiency, and muscle protein anabolism, according to a French study.
Six months of fish oil supplementation may modestly increase skeletal muscle strength in healthy, independent older people, says a new study from scientists at the Mayo Clinic and Concordia University of Wisconsin.
A 12-week RCT funded by Mitsubishi Corporation Life Sciences has shown that nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) intake has significantly improved certain aspects of muscle mobility, especially gait speed and left grip strength – which the company says presents...
A group of experts in Asia has finalised 14 consensus statements around muscle health in healthy elderly and those suffering from sarcopenia, including recommendation for protein, leucine, and L-carnitine supplementation.
A new dileucine ingredient that leads to over 40% more muscle building potential than leucine alone is being commercialized by start-up Ingenious Ingredients, with the company already “vetting exclusive top-tier distribution and marketing partners”.
Adding Kerry’s GanedenBC30 probiotic to milk protein may boost the absorption of select amino acids, such as arginine and isoleucine, while other amino acids were more quickly absorbed, says a new study.
Recent research suggests that at looking the microbiome changes that result from increased protein and fiber consumption could be a better way to design nutritional plans that decrease the incidence of sarcopenia and obesity in older adults.
Aging populations and the growing threat of degenerative muscle loss (sarcopenia) will provide a lucrative category for brands to target, say industry experts, but the current recommended daily intakes for protein are simply nowhere near enough.
