The administration of proteins during sleep is an effective way to promote muscle growth. Combined with electrostimulation muscle growth can again be given an extra boost. That is evident from PhD Bart Green at Maastricht UMC +. Green consumed investigated how proteins are converted in the body into muscle tissue and how to promote a smart way its production. Sarcopenia, is the medical term for the loss of muscle mass and strength. It is a process that is particularly associated with aging. As a result of sarcopenia, the independence and mobility and reduces the risk of admission to a hospital or healthcare facility bigger.

Plasma carotenoids, tocopherol and retinol research in the age of 35-74 years in six European countries.


Plasma carotenoids, tocopherol and retinol research in the age of 35-74 years in six European countries. Nutrient status may change with age. We analyzed plasma carotenoids, α- / γ-tocopherol and retinol, and compared them with age, demographic characteristics, and eating habits (assessed by a short food frequency questionnaire) in a cross-sectional study of 2118 men and women (age-stratified 35 -74 years) of the population in six European countries. Older age was associated with lower lycopene and α- / β-carotene and higher β-cryptoxanthin, lutein, zeaxanthin, α- / γ-tocopherol and retinol levels. Significant correlation with age were observed for lycopene, α-tocopherol, α-carotene and β-cryptoxanthin. Age was inversely associated with lycopene and this...

Scientists want more research into environmental factors and dementia


Experts have drawn up a new list of environmental factors that may influence the development of dementia. This list includes, among other power lines, a vitamin D deficiency and exposure to air pollution.

For this study were screened 4,784 examinations. Dementia is mainly associated with lifestyle: high blood pressure, smoking, obesity, diabetes, depression, low educational attainment and genetic factors.

Salmon farming is not as healthy as five years ago, the amount of omega-3 appears to be halved. The cause lies in the nurseries.


Researchers from the University of Stirling have discovered this, the BBC writes. "About five years ago contained 130 grams of Atlantic salmon about 3.5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids," says researcher Douglas Tocher. "This is the recommended weekly amount." "Now the amount of omega-3 halved in the same amount of salmon. Instead of a single serving of farmed salmon we now need twice as much food to get enough omega-3," said Tocher. Omega-3-acids are unsaturated fatty acids that promote brain development and help against high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and rheumatism. To combat overfishing in the oceans, fish farmers changed the diet of salmon. The feed consists of only 20 per cent of fish, the rest is plant foods. Five years ago, there was eighty percent of the food that...
