Did you know that your body composition changes as you age?
Yes, I know…Im not thrilled by that news either!
Age-related bone loss (osteopenia and then osteoporosis if severe) we are mostly familiar with, but are you aware that a similar age-linked phenomenon affects your muscles as well?
The process is called sarcopenia – loss of muscle mass that occurs with ageing. All this can lead to weakness, loss of function, decreased strength and power, mobility problems, decreased balance and activity levels and increased stiffness.
Now for the good news!
There are easy ways to prevent or even reverse age-related muscle-loss.
Lifelong health, why not!
