This study will examine the effect of leucine-enriched protein supplementation, alone and in combination with long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC n-3 PUFA), on muscle mass and f...
In the present study the investigators aim to determine whether leucine supplementation can augment muscle mass and strength and improve body composition in healthy elderly men
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel study to assess the effects of β-hydroxymethylbutyrate (β-HMB) combined with a resistance training program, after an acute proces...
This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled supplementation trial tested the hypothesis that nutritional supplementation with whey protein, essential amino acids - mainly leucine - v...
the results from animal studies and preliminary human studies show that carnitine availability and acetylcarnitine concentrations are low in insulin resistant states such as with type 2 di...
Creatine supplementation, immediately before and immediately following resistance training, has been shown to increase muscle mass and strength. However, the effects of pre- exercise and post-exercise...
L-arginine supplementation has been related to increased maximum strength and improvement of hemodynamic parameters in several diseases. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of L-arginine s...
The proposed benefits of protein supplementation on the skeletal muscle adaptive response to resistance exercise training in older adults remain unclear.
Limited trials examining the effect of exercise and nutrition supplementation in older people with sarcopenia are available.
High-fat (HF) diets in combination with sedentary lifestyle represent one of the major public health concerns predisposing to obesity and diabetes leading to skeletal muscle atrophy, decreased fiber d...
Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
Any food that has been supplemented with essential nutrients either in quantities that are greater than those present normally, or which are not present in the fortified food. The supplementation of cereals with iron and vitamins is an example of fortified food. Fortified food includes also enriched food to which various nutrients have been added to compensate for those essential nutrients removed by refinement or processing. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of O-acetylcarnitine from acetyl-CoA plus carnitine. EC 188.8.131.52.
