It’s common to lose some muscle mass as you age. As this muscle loss progresses, it affects your gait, balance, and overall ability to perform daily tasks. We’ve all seen elders who can’t stand long enough to cook in the kitchen or walk to the bathroom, for example. And we’ve all seen elders run marathons or lift heavy weights. What’s the difference? Part of it is decreased physical activity throughout the day.
Extreme muscle loss is a common condition that affects 10% of adults over 50 years old, but most elders experience this loss to some degree. It can decrease life expectancy and quality of life.
Clearly, this is a vicious circle. People with age-related muscle loss often experience weakness and lose stamina. This can affect their ability to carry out physical activities. A reduction in activity then leads to further muscle mass loss.
And let’s not forget the long list of chronic suboptimal nutritional concerns.
For a long time, researchers have believed that this deterioration was inevitable. But now we treatments that prevent or slow down this process.
In this detailed webinar, we’ll discuss nutrients, foods, exercise and hormones to combat this common problem.
Stay strong well into elderhood. You’ll live longer and stronger, with less pain and more stamina.
