As we age it becomes increasingly important to take care of ourselves. Muscle mass decreases, balancing becomes more difficult, bone mineral density & size decreases, etc. Today I want to talk about Sarcopenia and what you can do about it.
Sarcopenia is age related muscle loss.
Taking care of your body at an early age is important since the symptoms of sarcopenia can begin as soon as 30 years old. Sedentary people lose between 3% to 5% of their muscle mass every decade after turning 30 - this is sarcopenia at work. The only way to stay ahead of the aging process is to stay active for as long as possible!
