Aging has been associated with a reduced muscle protein synthetic protein intake, termed anabolic resistance. Physical activity performed protein intake increases the use of protein derived amino acids for muscle protein accretion in senescent muscle. Thus, the level of physical activity may be fundamental to maintain the anabolic protein intake with aging.
