Muscle Loss During Old Age
Starting at age 50, many people begin to muscle loss, and decrease in strength. This is known as sarcopenia, and it is quite common in older age. However, recent studies have shown that muscle loss in old age can be prevented. We tell you all about it!
How does muscle loss occur in old age?
Muscle mass gradually decreases after the age of 30. After that age, 3-8% of muscle mass is lost every 10 years. This increases after the age of 60.
This is the main contributing factor to disability and dependency in the elderly. Faced with the high risk of falls and fractures, many 65-year-olds begin to feel unable to perform certain tasks.
The main thing to do to prevent muscle loss is to maintain a life full of physical activity. Exercise is essential to strengthen muscles, and has been shown to be effective in delaying and preventing sarcopenia.
Exercising at least three days a week generates significant benefits in both young and old people. This is something that contributes to physical independence.
On the other hand, it is also essential to maintain a good nutritious protein diet, especially fast absorbing Amino Acid, broken down and digested form of protein. This will significantly help to strengthen the body’s muscles. A healthy life equals a much more pleasant aging.
So far there is no specific treatment for muscle loss. Various hormonal treatments, protein-rich nutritional treatments, and exercise have been studied. Even treatments to influence the immune system have been contemplated.
But unfortunately none have been effective enough so far. The most advisable thing to do is to take preventive measures for this from a young age.
