Sarcotropin® is a medical food containing ingredients that oppose sarcopenia, the progressive loss of muscle or lean body mass (LBM) that occurs during aging. There is scientific evidence that sarcopenia can be at least partially reversed with resistance exercise.
Nonetheless, while it is most common in physically inactive individuals, sarcopenia also occurs in people who remain physically active throughout their lives. This suggests that physical inactivity is not the only contributing factor to sarcopenia and that improper nutrition, a decline in hormones, insufficient micronutrients and other negative factors are also contributing causes.
In such instances sarcopenia may also be effectively managed with protein-energetic substances that are anabolic to the muscles of aging adults.
