Role of dietary protein in the sarcopenia
is just crossing into the Popularization Phase and is currently perfectly poised for marketing into the health food/specialty channel and among very health conscious and condition-specific consumers.
As mammals age, muscle mass and strength decrease progressively, a phenomenon known as sarcopenia

But the two want more data before concluding that declining oxytocin levels cause sarcopenia
A loss of fast twitch fibers, glycation of proteins, and insulin resistance may play an important role in the loss of muscle strength and development of sarcopenia
This protein 'gap' can lead to loss of muscle mass, or sarcopenia
Other articles examine sarcopenia
