08/12/2011 - Healthy Aging with BiPro Whey Protein

There are things that get better with age, and then there are things that require a little more attention as we get older.

Our bodies fall into the later category – with age our bodies have different fitness and nutrition needs in order to stay healthy.

Studies have shown that muscle mass declines with age, starting in the 40s and picking up speed after about age 50. Good nutrition and adequate amounts of high quality whey protein, such as BiPro Whey Protein, can help maintain strong muscles during aging.

Whey protein is an excellent source of the essential amino acid, leucine, which plays a key role in promoting muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth. BiPro Whey Protein is easy to digest and can be easily added into smoothies and other soft foods to ensure you get the protein your body needs at any age.

Another benefit of whey protein for seniors is the ability to help prevent bone loss. A recent study conducted at Boston University showed that elderly individuals who consumed low levels of protein had a significant loss of bone density four years after the start of the study, especially in the hip and spine areas. A nutritious diet including whey protein may help keep bones and muscles healthy and strong.

So talk to your doctor about adding a high quality whey protein, like BiPro, to your diet along with an exercise plan to keep your body healthy for many, many, many years to come!
