Element Nutrition, Inc. (Burlington, Ontario, Canada), has launched Rejuvenate, a patented muscle health and repair supplements that the firm says has been development for 17 years, and subject to 25 peer-reviewed published studies demonstrating its efficacy. The product, which is a blend of essential amino acids, targets middle aged individuals who may be dealing with age-related muscle and strength loss, known as sarcopenia.

“Muscle deterioration is becoming a worldwide epidemic that’s pushing forward timelines on preventable disease states and causing otherwise healthy adults to lose their independence,” said Stuart Lowther, founder of Element Nutrition, in a press release. “We’ve been working on developing a low-cost nutritional supplement with one of the world’s leading researchers in protein and amino acid nutrition and now have a solution to this health crisis that can easily help prevent muscle loss and rebuild muscle, even if exercise is not an option. Rejuvenate is the first supplement of its kind to generate positive muscle response without exercise and when used with exercise, doubles its ability to rebuild and repair muscle.”

In extreme cases, for example, supplementation with Rejuvenate increased the strength of knee and hip replacement patients recovering from surgery by 800%1, and helped patients on bed rest for 28 days to gain muscle while those who did not take the supplement lost muscle.2 The product comes in single-serve pouches as a powder that can be easily mixed in water. Each serving contains only 5 calories, and is free of sugar, dairy, and gluten. The company recommends that consumers drink one 8-ounce glass of Rejuvenate per day to get the desired results.
