In search of an effective method to prevent muscle wasting that comes with illness and aging, researchers have located a natural compound that is very promising.
The findings reported in the June issue of Cell Metabolism (a Cell Press publication), identify a natural component of apple peels known as Ursolic Acid as a promising newnutritional therapy for the widespread and debilitating condition that affects nearly everyone at one time or another.
