Wisdom does NOT come with age...

 Wisdom comes from learning, and learning is the process of making mistakes and making the proper adjustments. We all know those people who are 51 going on 21...

In many ways, we can make a similar analogy with our bodies..

Most people assume that with age comes physical pain, lack of mobility and strength, but this is only true if and when we stop moving.

Sure, we will inevitably lose muscle over time, but we can significantly slow the process down if we keep moving. 

One thing that is very true about aging is that the recovery process can slow down, which means our nutrition becomes even more important. 

If you only focused on one nutrient, protein would be the one we suggest you pay the most attention to. 

Why is protein so critical as we age?

  1. As we age, we lose our muscle mass quicker. Strength training and eating enough protein, can help preserve that muscle mass and even increase it. 
  2. Protein is the building block of muscle and it is needed for proper recovery. If we do not properly fuel our body to recover our muscles, it will be hard for our body to maintain and repair muscle properly.
  3. The strength of our bones rely on protein. As we age, we are more susceptible to osteoporosis and other bone related issues. Protein along with exercise can help combat the decline in bone density and strength.
  4. Protein is essential for the proper functioning of the immune system. The strength of our immune system starts to decline as we age making us more susceptible to illnesses. With proper protein intake, our body can produce necessary antibodies to help increase our immune response.
  5. As we age, our skin breaks down easier and we are more susceptible to sores and wounds. Protein is vital for the repair and regeneration of tissues in the body.

Now the question arises... how much should I be having?

I'm glad you asked! Generally speaking, you can have anywhere from .7 to 1.0 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Getting this amount of protein through your food everyday may seem difficult at times, so that is why taking a Whey protein supplement can help you reach those targets.
