While it is already known that skeletal muscle mass declines with increasing age, this study aimed to evaluate the relationship between skeletal muscle mass and 10-year cardiovascular disease incidence in healthy 45+ adults. Findings from this study support the importance of skeletal muscle mass in the prediction of long-term cardiovascular disease risk among middle aged and older adults without any pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
Skeletal muscle mass in relation to 10-year cardiovascular disease incidence among middle aged and older adults: the ATTICA study
Research has shown that low vitamin D levels in adults aged 60 years and over are linked to impaired muscle strength and performance.
After age 30, you may begin to lose 3-5% of muscle mass per decade. In this series, the Try Guys wear a body suit developed by MIT that simulates an elderly adult and the physical changes that occur as you age.
The Evolution of Sarcopenia: Could muscle health be the most important determinant for healthy ageing?
As the global population continues to rapidly age, we continue to make advancements that are allowing people to live longer than ever before. John Burstow discusses the risk of developing age-related diseases and conditions due to longer life spans and how muscle health could play a vital role to help combat this.
More than two-thirds of older adults are managing more than one chronic disease. This article reviews a new study, conducted by the International Food Information Council and supported by Abbott, which found that heart and muscle health were the top two health topics that adults over 50 years old are paying attention to.
In this review authors look at several dietary supplements and how they could potentially support improvements in health, exercise adaptation, and/or recovery.
