Beat the Clock: Fighting Age-Related Muscle Loss
None of us want to slow down. But beginning around age 35, physical changes in muscle mean each of us inevitably begins to lose muscle strength and mass. Left unchecked, most of us will lose around 30% of our muscle mass in a lifetime, leading to loss of function, inability to participate in many of the activities we enjoy, possible loss of independence, and a range of poor clinically associated outcomes. Much of this decline is not inevitable however.
In this webinar, you’ll learn the biology of muscle, changes that occur in aging muscles, and the nutritional and exercise tools backed by research to slow muscle loss, and instead continue to thrive with age.
