Science on protein, metabolic programming and long-term health

Growth & Development Obesity

Nutrition in early life can impact metabolic programming and epigenetics. Clinical studies suggest that the protein quality and quantity consumed during this period can influence metabolic programming and life-long health. Early life nutrition, can therefore, influence mechanisms that play a role in adiposity and risk of non-communicable diseases in later lie.
