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...
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.
Vitamin D is involved in many physiological functions that decline with age, and low levels of the substance contribute to frailty and increased risk for negative health outcomes. Conversely, frailty itself may contribute to lower vitamin D by reducing...
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.
Fish oil supplements may enhance the benefits of resistance training in older people and help combat the “age-related alterations in strength and physical function associated with activities of daily living”, says a new study.
Almost 50 million people in Asia-Pacific are suffering from sarcopenia, and this figure is expected to rise, creating a huge need for supplements and functional food innovation to help alleviate the problem.
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.
