Just like old people, elderly rats lose muscle mass because their bodies make less muscle protein. Researchers at INRA in France have discovered that anti-oxidants may be a way to do something about this. Elderly rats that get extra rutin [structural formula below], vitamin E, vitamin A, zinc and selenium in their food manufacture the same amount of muscle protein as young rats, according to INRA.
