Citrulline as a supplement for short bowel syndrome patients.

Citrulline as a supplement for short bowel syndrome patients. Only citrulline was able to prevent muscle atrophy and it was achieved independently from any noticeable effect on the gut in particular because citrulline and arginine share the same effect on mucosal ileal protein content. These results suggest that citrulline should be considered as a potential … Continue reading Citrulline as a supplement for short bowel syndrome patients.

Creatine is an inexpensive and safe dietary supplement

The benefits to older adults of creatine are substantial, *can improve quality of life, and *ultimately may reduce diseases associated with *muscle loss and *cognitive dysfunction. The well documented benefits of creatine supplementation in young adults, including increased lean body mass, increased strength, and enhanced fatigue resistance are particularly important to older adults. Higher brain … Continue reading Creatine is an inexpensive and safe dietary supplement

Therapeutic role of creatine

Therapeutic role of creatine Recent findings have indicated that Cr supplementation has a therapeutic role in several diseases characterized by atrophic conditions, weakness, and metabolic disturbances (i.e., in the muscle, bone, lung, and brain). Accordingly, there has been an evidence indicating that Cr supplementation is capable of attenuating the degenerative state in some muscle disorders … Continue reading Therapeutic role of creatine
