Research Paper Title Skeletal Muscle Disuse Atrophy and the Rehabilitative Role of Protein in Recovery From Musculoskeletal Injury. Background Muscle atrophy and weakness occur as a consequence of disuse after musculoskeletal injury (MSI). The slow recovery and persistence of these deficits even after physical rehabilitation efforts indicate that interventions designed to attenuate muscle atrophy and… Read More
Would The Elite Special Forces Benefit From Human Growth Hormone Enhancement?
Human Growth hormone (hGH or HGH), also known as growth hormone or somatotropin, is a protein made in the pituitary gland and passed from there into the blood stream. GH has effects on virtually all the organs of the body – it stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. It… Read More
Older People, Fish Oil & Muscle Volume: Any Connection?
Many claims have been made for the benefits of fish oil derived n-3 (or w-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), though none appears to have strong evidence (BMJ, 2015). A new addition to the list is the prevention of muscle loss in older people. 40 healthy people aged 60-85 were randomised to n-3 PUFA pills whil… Read More
Research: Muscles; Big, Bigger & Not So Big!
Research Paper Title Differential Response of Skeletal Muscles to mTORC1 signaling during Atrophy and Hypertrophy. Background Skeletal muscle mass is determined by the balance between protein synthesis and degradation. Mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) is a master regulator of protein translation and has been implicated in the control of muscle mass. Inactivation of… Read More
