Food for special medical purposes
The product is intended for dietary management in people at risk of muscle-mass loss, due to, among others, periods of immobilisation, and recovery and rehabilitation, as well as those related to age, sarcopenia, and chronic diseases, and in people with increased protein requirements at risk of malnutrition or being malnourished.
A unique composition of ingredients protein derived from high-quality whey-protein concentrate, HMB, creatine monohydrate, zinc in the form of highly digestible Albion® amino acid chelate, and vitamin D for maintaining muscle mass.
Food for special medical purposes. Contains sugars and sweeteners.
As studies show, HMB contributes to the preservation of muscle mass in the elderly, and may be useful in the prevention of muscle atrophy resulting from immobilisation or other factors.
Creatine is an amine naturally found in the human body, mainly in the muscles, which is synthesised from three amino acids - methionine, glycine and arginine. In muscle tissue, it is primarily stored in the form of the phosphocreatine involved in the resynthesis of ATP during muscle contraction. Studies conducted so far confirm the potential therapeutic effects of creatine administration on the improvement in the quality of life, through the increase in strength and increased resistance to fatigue, and the prevention of bone-mass loss in elderly.
PROTEIN is one of the main factors positively influencing the preservation of muscle mass, and, as shown by research conducted by the Institute of Food and Nutrition, the elderly sometimes tend to consume too-low amounts of this substance.
In addition, maintaining protein intake during periods when muscles are not being used stops the loss of muscle mass; the loss of muscle mass has numerous negative consequences for health.
Zinc plays an important role in many biochemical pathways, and participates in some cellular functions, including immune response.
A recent European study of 102 elderly people found that 44% of them had Zinc deficiency, and 20% had significant Zinc deficiencies.
The preparation has been enriched with vitamin D, whose deficiency is common among people living in Central Europe, including Poland, and is associated with a decrease in muscle function, and Zinc, which plays a role in regenerative processes, e.g. during recovery.
