As we age, there’s no denying that our body isn’t the same as it once was. We have new aches and pains and come to realize that certain activities we used to do without even thinking about are now more difficult. The main reason for these problems is because as we age, we lose muscle mass. Thanks to new research and equipment, you can slow down the aging process by regaining some of your lost muscle mass.
It’s not just hype, your body truly changes when you turn 50, whether you’re a man or a woman. Men and women gain that dreaded belly fat and men lose muscle elasticity. Both men and women over 50 also need a longer time to heal from an illness or injury. Hospitalizations tend to become more frequent because of the loss of muscle mass and bone density.
