On May 10th, ILSI Europe organised a free webinar on nutritional strategies to support healthy ageing. In the last century, we have added 30+ years to our life expectancies, but healthspan has not kept pace. We cannot reverse ageing, but we can extend our healthspan by changing our lifestyle. Please join us as we explore nutrition to improve health and age!

Dr Everson Nunes presented the latest insights on the current scientific evidence from randomized clinical trials regarding dietary protein supplementation to increase lean mass and strength. Prof. Philip Calder described findings from human trials that have investigated the effect of bioactive omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) on muscle protein turnover and on muscle mass and function. Possible mechanisms of action will be described. Lastly, Prof. Sue Shapses described how protein has multiple effects on maintaining a healthy body with aging, including evidence for bone health.
