Sustein Gold 55+ is a nutritional supplement that is designed to provide the essential nourishment for the elderly group of people ranging from 45 – 65 years old to expedite the muscle mass recovery hence to build resistance against weakening conditions such as Sarcopenia.
At the late adult stage, majority of the elderly will suffer from a physical condition known as Sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is a syndrome characterized by progressive and generalised loss of skeletal muscle mass in the whole body or at appendicular level and in combination with poor muscle function. Elderly people will also lose their muscle strength, endurance and flexibility over time which will affect their coordination, stability, and balance of movement.
Besides the bones of elderly people will tend to shrink in size and decrease in density hence it will weaken over time and have higher susceptibility to fracture. This condition is not only caused by ageing but also when the individual has a sedentary lifestyle. Sarcopenia is a slow process which is only visible over time.
Moreover, it is also a known fact that as people get older, voluntary food intake decreases, increasing the risk of malnutrition and blunting muscle protein synthesis. Since malnutrition is known to accelerate sarcopenia, the nutrition intake of older adults must be monitored and balanced by ensuring that they meet the minimum recommended nutrient intake especially of protein, leucine and vitamin D which have a significant effect on muscle maintenance
Based on a recent study in Malaysia, the average lifespan of a male is approximately 73 years old while for a female is 77 years old. Despite having an increased lifespan, the quality of life of many older adults have been compromised due to the presence of sarcopenia which usually starts at an age of 40, however the effects may take decades to manifest.
Hence, Sustein Gold 55+ is specifically formulated as a high protein supplement packed with wholesome and beneficial ingredients which includes high quality dairy whey protein, leucine, creatine, vitamin D, Fructo-oligosaccharide which acts as a prebiotic and 28 essential micronutrients which is able in assisting the delay and when it is taken with proper exercise regimes, it will be able to even reverse the progression of Sarcopenia.
Each ingredient used in Sustein Gold 55+ formulation has its very own benefits to fight this condition. Whey protein which acts as the dietary protein and has a faster rate of absorption will assist in accelerating the transmission of signals to build and reinforce the strength of the muscle. Hence, whey protein intake is crucial in the dietary intake of elderly people to overcome the signal resistance to the muscle which cause muscle weakening. Sustein Gold 55+ is also formulated with both essential and non-essential amino acid namely leucine and creatine. Leucine is an essential amino acid in which the body is not able to produce by itself.
There are 9 essential amino acid and leucine is one of the most important of them, which is included in Sustein Gold 55+ formulation. The main function of leucine is it has the ability to build muscle and triggers the muscle protein synthesis in order to increase the muscle mass in an individual. The main non-essential amino acid included in this formula is creatine.
Creatine is naturally synthesized in our liver, however there is studies which shows depletion over time as we age. Thus, supplementing the creatine in our diet will assist the growth of the lean muscles and boost the muscular recovery to increase the muscle mass to fight sarcopenia by providing sufficient strength to the muscle. Sustein Gold 55+ is further fortified with calcium and vitamin D in order to improve the bone density and structure which will be able to reduce the risk of fracture during fall and also able to prevent osteoporosis. That is why Uno Nutrition formulate Sustein Gold 55+ as we care for the ones you love.
