Stop Muscle Loss

As we age and in particular as men age natural testosterone levels decrease. With this decrease in levels the bodies’ ability to create or even maintain muscle mass also decreases. This lowering of testosterone levels is very slight around the mid twenties but accelerates considerably from about 50 years old onwards. Muscle loss of 1kg per 12 months is common and in some cases even more. With this muscle loss comes a loss in strength and also a greater load being placed on joints and the entire skeletal structure.

Also as we age the bodies’ ability to assimilate nutrients from food intake decreases. So to get adequate nutrition to maintain muscle mass, your food intake has to be increased which means more calories consumed and the likelihood of increased body fat. This is not what we want.

One of the most effective ways to approach this loss of muscle mass is to supplement your diet with a quality brand Whey Protein powder. Supplementing with protein powder will give you the extra protein required for your body to retain muscle mass, with out the extra calories which will be stored as body fat.

OPTIMUM Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey powder is the biggest seller worldwide. Whey Protein Isolates (WPIs) provide the purest form of whey protein available today. So the biggest percentage of the entire protein in our product is Whey with the second protein ingredient being the premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate. The combined result of these two superior Proteins is an impressive 24 grams in each serving. That will certainly give you the boost you need to recover and retain muscle.
