HMB Supplementation in Addition to Multicomponent Exercise in Old Adults

2019-02-06 19:08:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Evidence supports the fact that multicomponent exercise and β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) supplementation are, separately, effective in improving old adult's health and palliate functional metabolic diseases in the elderly. However, the true effect of HMB supplementation combined with a tailored exercise program in frail old adults is still unknown. Thus, the aim of the HEAL study is to assess the effects of the combination of a daily multicomponent exercise and resistance training intervention in addition to HMB supplementation on old adults' health.

Description

Evidence supports the fact that multicomponent exercise and β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) supplementation are, separately, effective in improving old adult's health and palliate functional metabolic diseases in the elderly. However, the true effect of HMB supplementation combined with a tailored exercise program in frail old adults is still unknown.

Thus, the aim of the HEAL study is to assess the effects of the combination of a daily multicomponent exercise and resistance training intervention in addition to HMB supplementation on old adults' health.

The findings of the HEAL study will help professionals from public health systems to identify cost-effectiveness and innovative actions to improve older people's health and quality of life, and endorse exercise practice in older adults living in nursing homes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.

Diet modification and physical exercise to improve the ability to carry out daily tasks and perform physical activities.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.

Physical activity which is usually regular and done with the intention of improving or maintaining PHYSICAL FITNESS or HEALTH. Contrast with PHYSICAL EXERTION which is concerned largely with the physiologic and metabolic response to energy expenditure.
