Living Healthy at Any Age
Aging can create many physical changes, including wrinkles and muscle loss, that impact us all. At the same time, men and women age in specific ways. Women, for instance, develop more and deeper wrinkles than men.
One study found that around age 50, the aging process shows more prevalently in women’s faces. Menopause, when the levels of hormones such as estrogen fluctuate, likely contributes to this condition.
As you age, you also lose collagen, the body’s most abundant protein. Collagen provides structure to your skin but also bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Studies show that combined with resistance training, supplementing with collagen powder could reduce the muscle loss that can occur with age.
Age-related muscle loss, called sarcopenia, can begin after 30. At that age, you can lose three to five percent of your muscle every decade.
Overall, men lose more muscle mass than women as they age. Over his lifetime, a man may lose 30 percent of his muscle mass. Muscle loss can decrease mobility while increasing your risk for fractures and falls.
Regardless of gender, you have plenty of control over these and other conditions. With the right approach, you don’t need to accept problems like wrinkles and weaker muscles as you age.

Healthy Aging Perspective
Everyone gets older, but the signs of aging, such as the loss of muscle, joint pain, wrinkles, and age spots, can begin to appear early in life.(1) Older people are one of the fastest growing populations in the world today.(2) People live longer today than ever before. In fact, it is expected that by 2050, people over the age of 80 will make up 4.3 percent of the world population.(2)
As you add years to your life, you want to look and feel your best, and following these healthy eating and lifestyle behaviors can help improve the aging process.
