Undernutrition, also known as protein energy undernutrition, is common among older Australians, with an estimated 10-44% at risk. Weight-loss in older adults is associated with loss of muscle mass with a risk of adverse outcomes.
Protein requirements for older people are actually approximately 25% higher than for younger adults. The recommended dietary intake for people aged ≥70 years is approximately 1g protein per kg body weight.
Whey protein is rich in the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) – L-leucine, L-isoleucine and L-valine – which are essential for supporting healthy muscles.
Ageing is typically associated with a loss of bone and declined total body calcium and vitamin D. Calcium, together with vitamin D, prevents negative calcium balance and reduces the rate of bone loss. A diet rich in calcium and vitamin D reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
Clinical trials with daily supplements of these nutrients demonstrate a significant reduction in the rate of age-related bone loss and the incidence of fractures, especially of the hip. In addition to calcium, other minerals including copper, magnesium, manganese and zinc appear to contribute to maintenance of bone density with age.
While ageing on its own may contribute to dysregulation of the immune system, undernutrition seems to be one of the main factors leading to poor immune responses. Protein-energy undernutrition is associated with decreased lymphocyte proliferation, reduced cytokine release and lower antibody response.
Micronutrient deficiencies reported in older people, such as zinc, selenium, iron, copper, vitamins A, C, E and B6 and folate, have important influences on immune functions.
IsoWhey Advanced contains Litesse® - a soluble non-viscous fibre that is well tolerated, less likely to cause the rapid gas production and subsequent gastric discomfort associated with the consumption of certain fibres, and, as a fibre, contributes to a balanced gastrointestinal tract.
