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.
