The #1 challenge to truly aging well, is holding onto your muscle. We start to lose muscle in our 30’s if we don’t protect it.
Muscle is critical for movement and balance so you can stay active and healthy and maintain your independence.
So, what is the key to holding on to muscle as we age?
High-quality protein helps with exactly that - and much more. In fact, protein is key to heart health, immune health, metabolic health and recovery from illness and injury.
Every cell in your body is made of protein. Your brain, skin, connective tissue, heart muscle, and organs all depend on protein to function. Without enough protein, you deteriorate faster than you should.
How Much Protein Do I Need?
Medical research says that over the age of 40, you should get 30 grams of high-quality protein, 3 times each day to maintain muscle.
Just remember “30-30-30”. 30 grams, 3 times per day, spread out. When you spread protein intake evenly throughout the day, it’s more effective.
What Type of Protein?
Lean meat like chicken, fish, and eggs are high quality protein, but UNJURY® Protein is best because it’s super high in leucine, an amino acid (protein building block) that is important for making new tissue.
