Nutritional Support for Age-Related Muscle Loss

UltraMeal® Advanced Protein provides support for the nutritional management of patients with sarcopenia.

Description

Servings Per Container:  14

This advanced formula provides essential amino acids, including added leucine, to support the healthy aging of skeletal muscle and to help address sarcopenia, the age-associated loss of skeletal muscle mass.

Each serving provides 20 g protein and amino acids, including 10 g of essential amino acids of which 5 g are branched-chain amino acids. Combined with appropriate exercise, supplementation with essential amino acids and especially of branched-chain amino acids may help improve skeletal muscle mass.

Half of the protein provided by UltraMeal Advanced Protein consists of essential amino acids for better support of muscle protein synthesis. Compared to more common dietary proteins, essential amino acids (and especially branched-chain amino acids) appear to be more rapidly absorbed and better utilized by skeletal muscle for the synthesis of new muscle tissue.

UltraMeal Advanced Protein also features cocoa polyphenols to help maintain endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which contributes to healthy blood flow. Cocoa polyphenols augment nitric oxide synthesis in blood vessels, which supports healthy vascular function.

Additionally, UltraMeal Advanced Protein contains 25 essential vitamins and minerals to support protein synthesis and healthy metabolic function and includes 4 g of prebiotic fiber.
