BACKGROUND A major contributing factor to the loss of mobility in elderly people is the gradual and continuous loss of lean body mass. OBJECTIVES To determine whether supplementation of an amino acid cocktail daily for 1 year could improve the age-associated changes in protein turnover and lean body mass in elderly people. DESIGN Elderly (76+/-1.6 years) women (n=39) and men (n=38) were recruited for a double-blinded controlled study. Study participants were randomly assigned to either an… CONTINUE READING
