Effect of Potassium Bicarbonate and Vitamin D Insufficiency on Aging Skeletal Muscle.

Ceglia, Lisa.

Abstract: Background: Age-associated, low-grade metabolic acidosis and vitamin D insufficiency are potential contributors to skeletal muscle loss and impairment. Reducing endogenous acid production with alkali therapy lowers markers of muscle protein breakdown, but effects on muscle morphology are unknown. Also, whether alkali therapy modifies the effect of vitamin D insufficiency on muscle has no... read more
