One of the big challenges for older adults, who want to continue to live independently, is loss of muscle mass. As we all get older we lose some of our strength, and body functions. Performing simple tasks, like opening a bottle, can become difficult for you, and the ones you love, if your muscles waste, or become weak. This muscle condition is commonly known as sarcopenia and is widespread in Malaysia, and globally. Adding healthy nutrition supplements with protein, and other essential vitamins and minerals, will build and maintain your body’s strength and help you to age gracefully.
Proteins build muscle strength
Numerous scientific studies have identified protein as key for muscle health in older adults. As we get older our body’s metabolism slows down and this makes us less responsive to amino acids, compared to younger people. You, and the ones you love, can overcome this by consuming more protein that generates responses in your body similar to younger people. There is also a lot of scientific evidence that muscle plays a key role in preventing chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Obesity is the most predominant factor limiting mobility in older adults. So the more protein the better.
Good quality matters
We all eat fast food from time to time. It’s tasty and whatever we know or think about about a hamburger or some chicken nuggets they fill us up and make us feel satisfied, quickly. It’s important to treat yourself, and the ones you love, every now and then to something that you like to eat but for your regular diet it’s quality that matters if you want to age gracefully. For older adults the quality of protein that you consume may be the most important part of your healthy diet. Most animal proteins are considered high quality such as red meat, poultry, and eggs. If you are vegetarian, or vegan, or simply don’t eat much animal protein then you will benefit from adding some healthy nutrition supplements to your regular diet.
