If you’ve reached your 50s or 60s, your body’s needs for dietary protein may have taken an unexpected turn upward.

Muscle and strength are known predictors of physical function, metabolism, and overall health for aging adults.

Finding a way to keep muscle while losing body fat is a primary goal during the aging process.
Beginning around age 30, we begin to lose muscle and gain body fat every year. Specifically, age-related muscle loss occurs at an average rate of three to five percent per decade between the ages of 30 and 60 and accelerates significantly after age 60. This is a serious concern since abnormally low muscle mass, know as sarcopenia, is linked to loss of strength and mobility, culminating in unhealthy aging and frailty.
