Boosting Muscle Mass for Seniors

Losing muscle as you age? Add some protein to your diet. A recent study found that eating protein can build just as much muscle in older adults as younger adults. Researchers studied two groups of men and women, one group included participants over 65 years old, the other group was comprised of people in their thirties and forties. The researchers took blood samples before and after the groups ate protein. They found that within 5 hours of eating the protein, both groups, the older and younger, showed a similar increase in muscle building protein. It's very common for older people to lose muscle mass as they age, which increases their risk of illness and falls. So it's critical for senior citizens to continue building muscle. The best way is not only adding more protein to your diet, but exercise as well!
