Most studies suggest that a low protein intake is associated with sarcopenia. The effectiveness and safety of ER for sarcopenic obesity remains unclear. Many of these studies recommend a dietary protein intake of 25 to 30 grams of high quality protein per meal to prevent sarcopenia. While cheese and milk protein are referred to as possible protein sources there is no reason to look to these acidic forms of proteins. Quality vegetable sources of protein are an obvious better choice. A diet that includes foods high essential aminos acids and leucine as well as supplementing HMB (β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate), Lysine, Arginine and vitamin D have proven to improve muscle quality in sarcopenic elderly people. Many studies have shown the effectiveness of these nutritional factors for sarcopenia.
The addition of these supplements must be combined with physical activities to develop a better management for sarcopenia. Further studies, preferably with larger numbers of elderly subjects, will be needed.
