July 11, 2017
Sarcopenia, a loss of muscle mass and function, is common during aging as well as during the progression of various (chronic) diseases. Muscle health is important because it allows mobility and independence. In our own facilities and in collaboration with partners, Nutricia Research conducts in-depth research in the field of muscle and protein metabolism.
“Our research into muscle is extremely important as the potential benefits of nutritional intervention are not limited to one health area but instead cover a number of disciplines, including oncology and physical frailty. By preserving or helping rebuild muscle in these patients, we can make a real difference to their lives.”
