  • Body builder protein powder increase life expectancy 10 years

    Very interesting indeed!


    A protein powder favoured by body builders could hold the secret of a long and healthy life, scientists believe.

    Dissolved in water, the mixture built muscle, boosted fitness and improved balance and co-ordination.

    Tantalisingly, the powder, which can be bought from health food shops and online, increased life expectancy by 12 per cent.

    The amazing results come from animal experiments, but, in human terms, this would equate to an extra 10 years or so of life.

    The Italian researchers believe that taken daily from middle-age, the 'elixir of life' powder could help millions look forward to a healthier old age.

    I am a wheelchair bodybuilder and there are many supplements we use that are of great benefit to non bodybuilders for general health.

      Such as......? I've been drinking protein shakes (100g/day) for about 6 months and taking 5g creatine/day for about 5 weeks. What else do you use that is beneficial and won't break the bank? Thanks.

        Those 2 are big ones, but then theres Glutamine its sold for cell volumizing BUT is is also important in helping nerve health. Then there's EFA's and Omega 3's for joint health and digestion. Taking BCAA before bed will help slow down muscle cannibalization for a few hours over not taking it.

        It also all depends on your situation and body's needs. But if you think about it we natural bodybuilders do the most to improve our body so just goes to make sense theres a lot of cross over for general health for others. Just like natural Test boosters also for keeping what muscle we have. They were designed for natural body builders.

        I started BBing after I found out I had M.S. and it keep me out of a chair for over 10 years. Bone degeneration and arthrits is the most to blame for me even ending up in it now. My avitar pic is from last fall and I am 44 years old.

            BCAA - wonder supplement for SCI

            BCAA - known as Body Builder supplement can actually play much important role in rehab process

            Jan, what an interesting question! I am not sure that the production of decorin is substrate limited. In fact, a quick perusal of the factors that affect decorin's role in overcoming inhibition and regulate its synthesis and secretion suggest that the situation is quite complicated. Nevertheless, it would be interesting to see if BCAA supplementation will increase its expression in extracellular matrix of the spinal cord.

            Decorin is ubiquitously expressed by many connective tissues, where it "decorates" collagen. It may itself sport a side-chain that includes chondroitin-6-sulfate and thereby inhibit growth. Decorin, however, also bind growth factor receptors, including epidermal growth factor, receptor tyrosine kinase receptors (which include neurotrophins), insulin-like growth, and low density lipoprotein receptors, through which it may affect other receptors, such TGF-beta receptor [source]http://www.sinobiological.com/article.php?id=458&gclid=CNDrgcuL5qwCFcfd4Aodwjo0N g[/source]. These interactions with growth receptors may overcome its growth inhibition properties [source]http://mcr.aacrjournals.org/content/6/5/785.full.pdf[/source]

            Recently, the Davies group [source]http://brain.oxfordjournals.org/content/134/4/1140.abstract[/source] reported that decorin reduces expression of semaphorin 3A messenger RNA, in addition to suppressing levels of chondroitin-6-sulfate proteoglycan production. The mechanism apparently depends on a nuclear factor "activator of transcription factor 3". Semaporins are well known to be growth cone guidance molecules [source]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semaphorin[/source].

            In 1993, Haneman, et al. [source]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8354878[/source] reported that decorin is highly expressed in peripheral nerve and central nervous system. In rat spinal cord, apparently motoneurons and other neurons express the decorin mRNA [source]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8354878[/source]. The factors that govern synthesis and secretion of decorin core protein are complicated [source]http://www.jbc.org/content/280/52/42774.full.pdf[/source], including N-linked oligosacharides, which promote folding of the molecule and interaction with molecules that help fold and secrete the molecule.

                  creatine will give you energy,which translates into more intense workouts, thus building muscle...what u need to be concerned with is that you have to drink plenty of water...it makes you retain water..it will give your muscles a fuller look.....but be carefull because you end up peeing more often...not sure how it would affect cathing, since i dont cath..and i took creatine for years pre sci

                      I'd like to know more about this for my son Robbie. He is 16, T4 complete, works out 2x week but is losing weight. He needs protein, energy, more upper body strength. His appetite is not what it should be. Suggestions please? I know NOTHING about protein drinks or supplements so please give me the basics.

                      Thanks!!!

                        If your protein supplement contains casein (and most likely it does), be cautioned:
                        Cancer (from Wikipedia)
                        T. Colin Campbell's The China Study (2005), a book about one of the largest nutritional studies ever conducted, describes a direct correlation between casein administered to rats and the promotion of cancer cell growth when exposed to carcinogens. Aflatoxin (a potent carcinogen) was administered to these rats over a 2 week dosing period. The rats were given a 1 week post-dosing period before beginning the test (promotion period). During the promotion period, one group of rats was put on a 5% casein protein diet and another group on a 20% casein protein diet. None of the rats on 5% casein protein developed foci, precursors to cancerous cell growth, and every rat on 20% casein protein developed the pre-cancer foci. It should be noted that all test groups were fed a 20% casein diet for a total of 5 weeks (2-wk acclimation, 2-wk dosing, 1-wk post-dosing) prior to the 12 week promotion period in order to survive the initial aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) dosing, regardless of whether they were in the 5% or 20% test groups.
                        Other studies conducted by Dr. Campbell on humans confirmed this correlation between the amount of casein protein consumed and the promotion of cancerous cell growth. Basically, he discovered that cancer growth could be turned on and off by adjusting the amount of casein protein in the diet.[22] A 2001 study suggests another milk protein, whey protein, but not casein, may play a protective role against colon tumors in rats.[23] According to a study from the Australian Dairy Council, casein has antimutagenic effects.[24]

                          SHARON....i would 1st try to get him to eat proteins (chicken/tuna.) ..as well as supplementing ...as far as drinks/shakes go....they fall under different types .
                          .
                          "meal replacement" drink/shakes...which have protein but also higher in carbs which are ok for energy, and are usually heavier and filling..

                          "protein powder"...which is low carbs, high protein and have aminos, etc..good to take after a workout to help repair/feed muscle..usually mixed with water or high fructose drink(grape juice is best)..allows for better absorbsion into the muscle

                          "weight gain"powder.....stay away from these..

                          my favorite has always been "MYOPLEX" made by EAS.. the "original" shake has 42 grams of protein, also vitamins/minerals..300 calories..only 6 gram fat..1 packet mixed with about 15 oz water/ice mixed in blender..makes a nice shake..kind of a meal rplcmnt with high protein

                          be carefull with the higher protein content....some people have stomach issues when ingesting a high gram count at once...if thats the case for u..they do make ones that only offer 20 grams or so per serving....the myoplex never bothered me.....100 %whey protein is best if your just getting a straight "protein powder"...shouldnt cause stomach issues....

                          hope this info helps, feel free to ask questions, u can msg me on my profile...

                              I was a power lifter/body builder before my accident and was on a high protein low fat diet. Egg whites, Tuna and Chicken were huge along with protein shakes and supplements. I cut out the protein shakes and supplements when I got injured seven months ago but still eat the same. Lots of protein and fruits and vegetables but low fat, no sweets. I went to the doctors for a UTI last thursday and they told me I was on the path to getting kidney stones due to my protein intake and that I had crystals in my urine. I'm not sure if this is because I am female? But just thought Id add this in there so people dont go protein crazy. I just increased my water intake and still eat the same though hoping that will help.
