Research shows that maintaining muscle mass and strength all your life is possible with good nutrition and an active lifestyle, and perhaps some natural supplements.
Growing up, a healthy, well-nourished and active child should get stronger and stronger over time.
The same is expected of young adults, who may be engaging in their favourite sport or undergoing training as part of national service.
However, as people approach middle age, commitments as working adults and parents can make it difficult to maintain an active lifestyle. At the same time, it’s thought that losing muscle tone and strength is a natural, inevitable part of aging.
Maintaining muscle mass保持肌肉
Yet, research has shown that men can keep their muscle mass if they stay active and work out.
Earlier studies suggested that people after 40 lose 8 percent or more of their muscle mass each decade of aging, which means less strength and mobility, which leads to less independence for the elderly.
But more recent research shows that this is not a foregone conclusion, with exercise a crucial factor. A university of Pittsburgh study of 40 athletes aged 40-81 showed that all of them were fit, trained four or five times a week, and competed frequently.
The study, according to one researcher, suggests strongly that people don’t have to lose muscle mass and function as they grow older. “The changes that we’ve assume were due to ageing and unstoppable seem actually to be caused by inactivity. And that can be changed.”
