Recommended Food

A mixture of plant and animal protein sources can be effective in supplying amino acids for muscle tissue. Some people do well on plant protein sources, but others need an ample amount of animal protein for optimal results.

The general recommendation for protein intake for adults is approximately 50 grams daily. Some patients require closer to 100 grams for muscle-mass growth.

Foods to Avoid

Avoid simple sugars and process foods that are devoid of nutrients.

The top 7 vitamins and supplements have shown to help Sarcopenia:

Prescription for Natural Cures by James F. Balch, M.D. and Mark Stengler, N.M.D.

General Recommendations

Being inactive is a big risk for sarcopenia. Patients who are bedridden can lose up to 9% of their lower-extremity muscle mass. We recommend resistance training two to three times weekly to help build muscle. Work with a certified trainer so that all your muscle groups are being enhanced.
