Sarcopenia is the progressive loss of strength, stamina and muscle mass associated with ageing. With sarcopenia, our mobility is increasingly limited, impacting heavily on our independence and worsening our quality of life. Furthermore, reduced mobility has been linked to cognitive decline and a range of lifestyle diseases, such as type II diabetes.

This whitepaper discusses who is affected, what we can do to address muscle-loss, and how sarcopenia progresses, to help manufacturers create functional food and dietary supplements that break the vicious cycle of age-related muscle atrophy.
