Increasing Muscle Mass With Age...

Researchers at the University of Florida recently found:

  • Dietary interventions involving protein supplementation improved functional and/or strength with age

Replacing low testosterone along with resistance training has been shown to prevent the accelerated loss of muscle mass with aging.

Testosterone has also been shown to up-regulate the genes that are involved in increasing muscle mass.

In summary, diet, exercise, and replacing low testosterone have all been shown to be highly effective at preventing this serious issue.
