A growing body of evidence is suggesting muscle metabolism may also play a role in the prevention of many chronic diseases, such as type-2 diabetes and osteoporosis. However, research shows current protein recommendations may not go far enough to contribute to healthy muscle development.
Sarcopenia is a condition associated with a loss of muscle mass and strength in older individuals. Prevention of this debilitating disease is especially important to ensure people can continue to live well and independently since loss of muscle can decrease stamina, lessen the ability to perform daily tasks and lead to an increased risk of falls and bone fractures. While there is no single cause, insufficient protein intake may be a key contributor to this condition, which can significantly compromise overall quality of life as we age.
