Protein Recommendations for Healthy Aging: Considerations for Quantity and Quality Nancy R.

Consider protein requirements with specific regard for healthy, active aging, essential amino acid intake, and the flexibility provided by current DRIs for respective dietary protein prescriptions; Translate the latest scientific findings on the role of protein quantity, quality and timing/meal distribution into practical meal plans designed for healthy aging; and Extend concept of amino acid density to the design of healthy eating patterns that incorporate high-quality protein sources to meet dietary protein recommendations. Protein is Fundamental to Life Protein is made up of building blocks and provides structural components for various proteins required for numerous physiological functions and optimal health Proteins Roles in

Food Protein Sources Routine exercise increases protein turnover Review of Protein Turnover: Effects of Nutrition Body/Muscle Protein A A Food Protein Sources Consuming protein reduces protein breakdown

NET Protein Balance Response to Nutrition and Exercise Exercise is essentially catabolic; energy is required for work Recovery is essentially anabolic; energy and rest is required to repair, rebuild, and maintain muscle and body protein Nutrients primarily protein need to be consumed to achieve an anabolic state, a positive NET balance Phillips et al., J Am Coll Nutr, 2005 Critical Role of Essential Amino Acids in Context of Protein Requirements and Recommendations has been Lost in Translation Only Essential Amino Acids Needed

to Achieve a Positive NET Balance MAA = 6g mixed amino acids EAA = 6g essential amino acids MAA + CHO = 6g mixed amino acids + 35g carbohydrate EAA+CHO = 6g essential amino acids + 35g carbohydrate Borsheim E et al., Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab. 2002 Leucine is Key Essential Amino Acid Phillips et al., Sports Med. 2014 Translating Evidence Regarding Protein Quantity

580 calories 33 g protein 2.3 g leucine 11.0 g EAAs Summary and Practice Applications 1. The RDA sets the minimal amount of dietary protein for most healthy adults to prevent deficiency and is based on nitrogen balance, not functional outcomes 2. Current evidence suggests that dietary protein intake 1.0 g/kg/d is recommended to maintain muscle mass, benefit musculoskeletal health, and support active aging 3. High quality protein sources are critical to the design of healthy, nutrient-rich, calorie-conscious eating patterns. Prioritize protein in breakfast and snacks Protein quantity does not necessarily equate to protein quality. Thank You!
