Vitamin D not only plays a key role in maintaining bone strength, it also plays an important role in muscle growth.

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.
