Post-exercise Protein Intake for Active Children
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Start date||October 2011|
|End date||January 2014|
|Trial size||36 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01598935, 10.44.NRC|
Today, there is an important lack of knowledge on the effects of dietary protein on protein metabolism after physical activity in children. Here, the investigators will measure changes in whole body protein metabolism using minimally invasive techniques and stable isotope methodology at rest and after physical activity with the intake of milk protein.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||double blind (subject, investigator)|
Whole body protein balance
time frame: Participants will be followed for 10 days prior to assessment of whole body protein balance.
Whole body protein metabolism, metabolites
time frame: Participants will be followed for 10 days prior to assessment of whole body protein metabolism and metabolites
Male or female participants from 10 years up to 12 years old.
