Aging is characterized by a progressive loss of muscle mass. A decrease of muscle protein synthesis stimulation has been detected in the postprandial state and correlated to a decrease of muscle protein synthesis sensitivity to leucine in vitro. This study was undertaken to examine the effect of a leucine-supplemented meal on postprandial (PP) muscle… CONTINUE READING
