Ensure Build Preserve Muscle

Adults between the ages of 40 and 65 years old should be on “high alert” and take active
steps to strengthen your muscle and body for overall health.

Why do you need to keep your muscles strong?

As we age, we lose muscle mass. When losing
muscle mass we face higher risk of:

Immobility
Increased Falls
Physical and Mental Fatigue
Loss of Independence

Your muscle loss starts
earlier than you think!

 

After 40, we start to lose muscle mass and that can be as much as 33% of muscle mass loss between 40 – 80 years old.*

*Baier S et al,JPEN.2009;33(1):71-82.

You can build strength with a protein rich diet!

Fill your plate with protein, calcium and vitamin D.
