Product highlights: A unique combination of ingredients for combating sarcopenia
All through our lifetime, our muscles are continually being renewed: every day, muscle cells are destroyed and replaced with new ones. As we grow older, our body loses this ability to renew. More cells are destroyed than are replaced, and this leads to age-related muscle loss.
The phenomenon of sarcopenia can be described as significant muscle wastage, which leads to:
- Reduced muscle strength and mass
- A higher risk of falls and fractures
- A higher risk of loss of independence
At a time when our life expectancy is increasing by 7 hours every day, it is important to find solutions that help us grow old in favourable conditions.
A revolution in the field of age-related muscle loss, SARCOFONTIL® has a unique combination of ingredients:
- Leucine, an essential amino acid which stimulates the building of muscle tissue.
- Vitamin B6, which facilitates assimilation of amino acids and therefore facilitates synthesis of muscle protein.
- Plant-based Vitamin D, which helps reduce age-related muscle wasting while favouring synthesis of muscle protein.
- And HMB (hydroxymethylbutyrate), a compound that is naturally present in the body, is used to reduce degradation of muscle proteins and favours their syntheses by optimising the metabolism of leucine.
SARCOFONTIL®, a simple way of preventing and combating age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia).
SARCOFONTIL® is a foodstuff used for special medical purposes.
So when should I use SARCOFONTIL®?
- From age 50 onwards, in order to prevent age-related muscle loss,
- In order to limit the progression of sarcopenia once it is diagnosed,
- After an operation and/or a stay in hospital, in order to speed recovery and regain muscle mass (convalescent phase),
- If you have to lead a sedentary lifestyle, which can make sarcopenia worse,
- In elderly people with reduced appetites and in cases of malnourishment,
- Persons hospitalised at home or in an institution.

Recommendations: To combat sarcopenia and effectively maintain muscle function, it is advisable to eat an adequate and balanced diet, most notably one that provides the required quantity of proteins for muscular synthesis. Regular and suitable physical exercise is also important. Low-intensity exercise that provides resistance, such as light weight-lifting, chest expanders, aquacise, cycling etc are ideal.
