Combat Muscle Loss With Protein

Getting enough protein in your diet is crucial for building and maintaining muscle mass especially as you age.  Age related muscle loss known as sacopenia can begin in your 30s and it accelerates with age if left unabated.  Sacopenia can lead to muscle weakness, fatigue, insulin resistance, and injury.

Increased protein consumption, and strength training are two of the most effective ways to combat muscle loss.  0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight (0.36 grams per pound) has been the normal recommendation for daily protein intake for years.  However, new studies show that 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight (0.45 to 0.68 grams per pound) may be more beneficial in building, maintaining and reducing muscle loss.

I have branded a great nutritional supplement to help you meet your daily protein needs.  It's called Protein My Whey.  Each serving of Protein My Whey has:
