Functional impact of high protein intake on healthy elderly people.


Decline in muscle mass, protein synthesis, and mitochondrial function occurs with age, and amino acids are reported to enhance both muscle protein synthesis and mitochondrial function. It is unclear whether increasing dietary protein intake corrects postabsorptive muscle changes in aging. We determined whether a 10-day diet of high [HP; 3.0 g protein x kg… (More)
