About this item
Contributors from a wide range of medical specialties explore the role of nutrition in mitigating the loss of muscle mass with age. In sections on how nutrition and other factors relate to sarcopenia, protein and exercise, and other therapeutic strategies, they discuss such topics as whether malnutrition-sarcopenia syndrome is the future of nutrition screening and assessment for older adults, novel insights on nutrient management of sarcopenia in the elderly, myofibrillar protein synthesis following ingestion of soy protein isolate at rest and after resistance exercise in elderly men, the pleiotropic effect of physical exercise on mitochondrial dynamics in aging skeletal muscle, muscle wasting and resistance of muscle anabolism: the "anabolic threshold concept" for adapted nutritional strategies during sarcopenia, and the rationale for antioxidant supplementation in sarcopenia.
