Special Issue in Nutrients: Nutrition for Musculoskeletal Health
Sarcopenia, the progressive and generalized loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength/function associated with aging, increases the risk of a vast array of adverse health outcomes, including falls, morbidity, loss of independence, disability, and mortality. As such, sarcopenia poses a huge socioeconomic burden in developed countries. The development and implementation of effective interventions against sarcopenia are therefore a public health priority. A deeper understanding of the intimate mechanisms of muscle aging is also necessary to identify relevant biological targets for specific intervention. Indeed, the contemporary management of sarcopenia relies on exercise and specific nutritional recommendations.
The aim of this Special Issue is to address all the aspects related to the correlation between nutritional status and muscle health, as well as potential interventions to prevent and to treat sarcopenia.
As such, we invite you to submit your latest original research or review articles to this Special Issue.
