Abstract:

Sarcopenia is an age-related loss in lean body mass accelerated by poor nutrition and physical inactivity. To counteract this loss of muscle, patients should consume protein in adequate quantities and at proper times. This article investigates the effects of physical inactivity on lean body mass loss and the ingestion of protein on lean body mass accretion.
