The importance of Muscle Health as we age
As we get older, we tend to start losing muscle mass. In fact after the age of around 45 years old, we lose around 1% muscle mass each year, which means that by the time we are 65 years old, we may have lost a quarter of our muscle mass or even more!
This is an alarming fact to most people. In fact there is a medical term for this and this is sarcopenia. See how our Maintaining Muscle product can help keep you strong and active.
The importance of Bone Health as we age
Bones are living tissue that includes the combination of bone tissue, nerves, cartilage and connective tissues, with blood vessels supplying important nutrients to the bones.
By the time we reach 30 years old, our bones have reached peak bone strength and mass, with post 40 being the start of bone mass decline. This is significantly speeded up in post-menopausal women, though men do not escape this bone loss with age. See how our Strong Bones product can help keep you moving and active.
The importance of Joint Health as we age
As we all age, our joints tend to give us pain from time to time and in some cases the pain can be considerable. But why does this happen as we get older?
In essence, at the end of each of our bones, is a smooth lining of protective cartilage and other soft tissues that also produce a liquid called synovial fluid. It is the combination of this soft cushion of cartilage and the synovial fluid that helps our joints remain mobile and healthy. See how our Healthy Joints formula is designed to help keep you moving and active.
The importance of Maintaining Energy as we age
Staying active as you get older is probably the most important thing you will do in order to have a long and healthy life, whether this is at pre-retirement and still working hard, or whether this is post retirement.
A failure to keep active as we age, can lead to an overly sedentary lifestyle, which if continued, can lead to rapid loss of muscle mass and strength and bring on the onset of frailty far too early on in life. No-one wants to lose strength and mobility as they age. See how our Fighting Fatigue formula can help keep you feeling energised and active.
