what makes muscles grow?

Muscles are the body’s health engines. Sarcopenia is the gradual loss of muscle mass that can affect people in their 30s and beyond. The main symptoms of sarcopenia are decreased muscle mass and strength. As a result, other symptoms and effects of sarcopenia include frailty, problems with mobility, falls and fractures, decreased activity levels (which only makes sarcopenia worse), loss of independence, weak bones, and weight gain from lack of activity. Sarcopenia treatment and prevention includes exercise, increasing overall dietary protein, choosing protein wisely, upping your intake of omega-3s, balancing hormones, upping your vitamin D intake, consuming more anti-inflammatory foods, decreasing your inflammatory foods intake, limiting alcohol consumption or avoiding alcohol, and quitting smoking.
