UltraMeal Advanced Protein Sarcopenia Medical Food - Dutch Chocolate

UltraMeal Advanced Protein by Metagenics provides support for the nutritional management of patients with sarcopenia muscle loss. This advanced formula provides essential amino acids, including added leucine, to support the healthy aging of skeletal muscle and to help address sarcopenia, the age-associated loss of skeletal muscle mass. Each serving provides 20 g of protein and amino acids, including 10 g of essential amino acids of which 5 g are branched-chain amino acids. Combined with appropriate resistance exercise, supplementation with essential amino acids and especially of branched-chain amino acids may help improve skeletal muscle mass. Using the UltraMeal Advanced Protein supplement can also help prevent sarcopenia from getting worse.

Half of the protein intake provided by UltraMeal Advanced Protein consists of essential amino acids for better support of muscle protein synthesis. Compared to more common dietary proteins, essential amino acids (and especially branched-chain amino acids (BCAA)) appear to be more rapidly absorbed and better utilized by skeletal muscle for the synthesis of new muscle tissue and muscle mass. The proprietary blend of pea protein also supports healthy gut function.

UltraMeal Advanced Protein used for sarcopenia treatment also features cocoa polyphenols to help maintain endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which contributes to healthy blood flow. Cocoa polyphenols provide nutritional benefits including nitric oxide synthesis in blood vessels, which supports healthy vascular function and muscle retention.

Additionally, UltraMeal Advanced Protein sarcopenia supplements contain additional nutritional benefits including 25 essential vitamins and mineral blend to support protein synthesis and healthy metabolic function and includes 4 g of prebiotic fiber. These key components can help with the nutritional management of sarcopenia.

Age-Related Muscle Loss and the Benefits of Protein Supplements

Typically, after the age of 30 muscle mass begins to decline naturally by 1-2% each year. This decline accelerates after age 60 to 3-5%, resulting in a total reduction of 30% in muscle mass. This common age-related muscle loss for both men and women is commonly referred to as sarcopenia. It is most prevalent in individuals over the age of 70, and studies have correlated the loss of muscle with an increased risk for falls, functional decline, and disability in older adults. One of the central mechanisms of sarcopenia is anabolic resistance - a reduction in protein synthesis by muscle tissue. This means that the body has difficulty absorbing and using protein to maintain muscle mass. Protein supplements have been shown to support muscle retention and increase the protein synthesis.

With the help of medical professionals and medical food, dietary protein can help support better muscle health and better muscle function in older adults to address sarcopenia. The UltraMeal Advanced Protein blend contains both proteins for muscle repair and essential amino acids for protein synthesis in the muscles. This protein supplement can be taken to help support muscle retention, along with a healthy diet and exercise. Always consult your primary care physician or healthcare practitioner before starting a dietary supplement regime, like UltraMeal Advanced Protein.

Overall Rating

I have been taking this for a few years and it is a great way for me (a vegetarian) to get additional protein. I've never been one for the taste of protein powders, but I normally mix this in a blender with milk and a banana and it tastes pretty good.
