UltraMeal® Advanced Protein provides support for the
nutritional management of patients with sarcopenia. 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 protein and amino acids, including 10 g of
essential amino acids of which 5 g are branched-chain amino acids.
Combined with appropriate exercise, supplementation with essential amino
acids and especially of branched-chain amino acids may help improve
skeletal muscle mass.
Half of the protein 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) appear to be more rapidly
absorbed and better utilized by skeletal muscle for the synthesis of new
UltraMeal Advanced Protein also features cocoa polyphenols to help
maintain endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which contributes to
healthy blood flow. Cocoa polyphenols augment nitric oxide synthesis in
blood vessels, which supports healthy vascular function.
Additionally, UltraMeal Advanced Protein contains 25 essential vitamins
and minerals to support protein synthesis and healthy metabolic
function and includes 4 g of prebiotic fiber.
