Sarcopenic Support Plan
Sarcopenia is the age-related degenerative loss of muscle protein mass, strength, and endurance. It leads to increased morbidity as you age, especially after the age of 40. In the developed world, roughly 40% of the population is sarcopenic. Physically inactive people can lose as much as 3% to 5% of their muscle mass per decade after age 30.
Sarcopenia is a significant component in the development of frailty. It is a syndrome characterized by the progressive and generalized loss of mass and strength, resulting in physical disability, falls and fractures, loss of independence, immobility, and death.
Sarcopenia is often caused by:
- Biological aging leads to reduced activity of anabolic (repair and build) hormones such as DHEA, testosterone, estradiol (in women), and thyroid hormones (sluggish thyroid).
- Poor liver detoxification keeps the body in a catabolic (wear and tear) state.
- Elevated levels of cortisol, leading to weight gain.
- Lack of exercise.
- Poor absorption of proteins.
