Resistance training, creatine and protein in frail elderly

What is the effect of resistance training with co-supplementation of creatine and protein in frail elderly?

Frailty represents one of the most common public issues currently, causing muscle dysfunction and body composition disturbances. Evidence shows beneficial effects of resistance training, protein supplementation and creatine supplementation in frail older adults. However, studies combining and comparing the effects of all 3 are lacking.

This study showed that co-supplementation with creatine and whey protein was well-tolerable and free of severe adverse effects in frail older adults. Resistance training and supplementation increased muscle function parameters in all participants. Creatine did not enhance the effects of resistance training and protein supplementation in this population.
