The PRALEUCINE® concept is suitable for anyone who notices that their muscles need some support.

FEED YOUR MUSCLES FOR EVERYDAY STRENGTH

WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM PRALEUCINE®?

We’re so used to our muscles that we hardly notice them. It’s all too easy to forget to do a little extra to maintain and strengthen our muscles, even more so as we get older.

We need our muscles all day long. As soon as we get out of bed in the morning, we start using our muscles. Even by simply sitting in a chair we use our muscles. Our heart is the most important muscle, but we also use muscles to breathe. That’s why it’s important to take care of our muscles.

Getting fitter
A common problem in the elderly is loss of muscle strength and function which increases the risk of falls and bone fractures. Exercise and nutrition are an effective treatment method to improve muscle and bone health. The treatment that works best involves stressful activities (e.g. jumping), balance (e.g. standing on one leg) and mobility training (e.g. stretching). In addition, for strong muscles and bones, a combination of calcium, vitamin D and proteins is recommended. The effects of vitamin D and protein on muscle function are enhanced when you add leucine.

If you are bedridden
If you’re unlucky enough to be ill or injured, you can lose muscle mass up to three times faster. This is more difficult to recover from, so it’s important to pay extra attention to your nutrition. Just as you need oxygen to breathe, your muscles need proper nutrition to stay strong and healthy.

Grip strength is a good measure of muscle function
A person's hand grip strength is generally accepted as a simple way of estimating muscle strength. Lower grip strength is associated with functional limitations and a predictor of physical health problems and cognitive decline. The hand dynamometer can be used to measure the maximum hand grip strength.
