Title: Protein: Timing is Everything - Research Explores Protein's Role in Health and Disease
Speaker: Douglas Paddon-Jones, PhD
This webinar is restricted to NPA members only.
New research published in Am J Clin Nutr and The Journal of Nutrition suggests that consuming a moderate amount of protein at three meals throughout the day has the potential to support healthy aging by positively influencing muscle growth and repair, glucose regulation and satiety and weight management.
Join Douglas Paddon-Jones, PhD to learn about this new body of research and discover practical ways to help people make small, meaningful changes to their diet to achieve optimal health by incorporating 25-30 grams of protein at each meal. One CPEU is applied for the webinar.
