Eating in Space: Does Nutrition Matter?
Tufts Bed Rest Study
Using the Wolfe bed rest study as our prototype, and keeping the same protocol so that we could compare between studies, a second study was designed and implemented at Tufts University, with Dr. Carmen Castaneda-Sceppa as Principle Investigator. This study expanded on the original project by adding both an exercise component and a timing component (optimal time between ingestion of the supplement and performance of the exercise). The purpose of the study was to determine if an amino acid supplement, plus a resistance exercise program, plus optimized timing of supplement intake to exercise, would have a synergistic effect on muscle atrophy.
