As we get older, our bodies naturally lose muscle mass.

As we get older, our bodies naturally lose muscle mass, resulting in an increased risk of falls, mobility problems and frailty in elderly people. Canadian scientists have recently demonstrated that eating enough protein divided equally among three daily meals is the best way to remedy this problem.
