A simple way to keep your muscles strong as you get older (and it isn't exercise)
This one step can improve aging muscles and
boost your immune system
By Janet Zand O.M.D., L.Ac
It's normal for our muscles to lose tone and become a bit flabby as we age. But just because it's normal, it doesn't mean it's good.
Not only are flabby muscles unsightly, they're also a sign that we're losing muscle mass and strength.
Losing muscle mass makes it harder to do the things you take for granted. Like walking up stairs. Lifting a bag of groceries. Or recovering your balance instead of falling.
Losing strength also makes you more prone to injuries that can keep you from enjoying the activities you've loved for years. It's a major reason people lose mobility and end up in nursing homes.1
We all want to stay strong and vital for as long as possible. So many of us turn to exercise. While a regular exercise program can help, it's often not enough. We need to feed our muscles, too.
The Highest Quality Protein You Can Eat
If you're concerned about aging muscles, bones, and your immune system, then whey protein could be one of the most important nutrients to add to your diet.
As you can see from the chart below, whey protein has the highest biological value of any protein you can consume. Including beef. That means it has all the essential amino acids your body needs for muscle-building, immune support, weight control, and more — in the right amounts.

What's the best food for muscles? Protein. Your body craves protein for building muscles and for healing faster after a workout or an injury. Protein is a vital "building block" for enzymes, hormones, bones, skin, cartilage and blood, too.2
The problem is, as we get older, it's hard to get enough protein. We tend to eat less protein. And the protein we do eat is not digested as well as when we were younger.
Poor digestion means poor absorption. So you may think you're eating plenty of protein but you're still not getting enough into your muscles and tissues.
The Best Way to Get More Protein Into Your Diet
When it comes to keeping your muscles strong, you need a well-absorbed complete protein with all the necessary fats and amino acids. The top two sources are eggs and dairy. Of these, one protein stands out.
Ounce for ounce, whey protein from milk is the best muscle-building, fat-burning nutrient on the planet. That's because it has the highest amount of protein for the fewest number of calories.
It contains all the amino acids your body needs, including the ones you have to get from your diet. Plus it's easier to digest than beef or egg protein. So whey protein is absorbed faster into your bloodstream, where it can quickly help you build muscles and repair tissues.3
But not all whey protein is created equal. Many whey products today are nutritionally deficient and over-processed. What's more, many come from cows that have been fed growth hormones and antibiotics and all sorts of stuff you don't want in your body.
How to Choose the Best Whey Protein Powder
So how can you get the benefits of whey protein from milk and avoid these dangers? Here's what I look for:
A whey protein concentrate, not an isolate. Isolate may have a slightly higher percentage of protein. But it's more processed. So I prefer a whey concentrate, which still has the nutritional cofactors like healthy fats, lipoic acid and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). These cofactors make whey concentrate a more complete and natural immune-boosting, whole food. Not an over-processed supplement ingredient.
More Than a Muscle-Builder
The benefits of adding whey protein to your diet go well beyond building stronger muscles. They also include:
Stronger bones. Whey protein contains lactoferrin, which stimulates the osteoblasts that grow new bone cells.
Greater endurance. In both animal and human studies, eating whey protein helped improve strength and endurance.
Lower cholesterol and blood sugar. Adding whey protein to your diet can help you better manage your cholesterol and balance your blood sugar, too. Especially if you are carrying a few extra pounds.
Healthy blood pressure. There's evidence that whey protein can help you maintain healthy blood pressure and vascular function. Whey protein has a group of substances called kinins that can lower blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels.
Faster recovery. Adding whey protein to their diet helped patients recover faster after injuries. It also fights infections and helps you bounce back faster after surgery.

From grass-fed cows. Most dairy cows live in crowded, unsanitary conditions. They spend their days walking around in dirt and manure "pastures." They eat hay, not grass. No wonder they're given antibiotics to prevent disease.
Grass-fed cows, on the other hand, produce milk with higher amounts of immune-supporting nutrients like alpha and beta lactalbumin. And higher amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that can protect your heart.4
Free from toxins, including pesticides and chemicals. Your whey should also be ultra-filtered. That means it's carefully filtered to remove impurities while preserving immune-supporting fats and amino acids. Manufacturers of cheap whey protein process their whey with acids. And the residue from these acids can be toxic.
Seriously high protein content. When I look at a protein powder, I look at how many grams of protein per serving. With some products, it's only 5 or 8 grams of protein. That's about as much as a single egg. So I look for at least 15 grams of protein in each serving. If you can get 15 grams of protein in one serving, you're really boosting your daily protein intake.
No artificial ingredients. Your protein powder should be sweetened with a natural sweetener like Stevia, instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners.
An Easy Way to Make the Right Choice
I've been using whey protein for years. But when I learned about the many problems with whey protein powder, I went searching for a product that met all of my requirements.
It wasn't easy! There are so many different brands, trying to choose the right protein powder can drive you crazy. So I did the work for you. I did a lot of digging. And what I came up with will end your confusion — and help restore your lost muscle tone.

I spoke with my colleagues at Advanced Bionutritionals. Together, we formulated a new, high-quality protein powder made from pure whey protein imported from grass-fed cows in Germany. It's called Advanced Protein Powder. And here's something else you should know about it...
The One Nutrient Everyone Over 50 Should Have
Did you know a fast-absorbing protein like this can be even better at limiting muscle loss in older adults than in younger people?6
It's true. Whey protein is not just for athletes and bodybuilders. In fact, it might be even more important for the rest of us.
Recent studies show that whey protein can slow down muscle loss due to aging.7,8 It can help build muscle in those over 65.9 And in another study of elderly adults, eating whey protein helped them strengthen the big skeletal muscles that are so important for balance and mobility.10 These are the muscles that keep you safe from crippling falls. And there's even more good news...
It's a Potent Antioxidant and Immune Booster!
Whey protein also strengthens your immune system. It's packed with nutrients that enhance your immunity, such as lactoferrin, beta-lactoglobulin, and immunoglobulins.
In addition, whey protein contains an important amino acid called cysteine, which has been shown to boost your glutathione levels.11 Glutathione is your body's master antioxidant and detoxifier.12 It helps your body defend itself against infections, free radical damage and toxins.
Whey protein also supports your intestinal health. It acts as a "prebiotic" to help you digest your food better and produce antibodies that fight germs and bacteria.13
It's Not Just for Smoothies or Protein Shakes
Chances are you've tried a protein shake before as a meal replacement or as a healthy snack. But you can get the health benefits of Advanced Protein Powder in many other ways than a blended drink. For example...
Stir some Advanced Protein Powder into oatmeal or granola to increase your protein at breakfast. (Oatmeal with a dab of peanut butter and protein powder is a nutritional powerhouse with protein, carbs and essential fats.)
Use protein powder in your favorite recipes, like soups, salad dressings, and casseroles.
Sprinkle some on cottage cheese for a healthy, high-protein snack. Add a few teaspoons of honey or cinnamon for extra flavor.
Add protein powder to yogurt. The natural vanilla flavor in Advanced Protein Powder will liven up fat-free, unsweetened yogurt. Add fruit for even more flavor and antioxidants.
Bake with protein. It's a great way to make your favorite cakes, cookies, muffins, pies or frozen desserts a bit healthier.
Advanced Protein Powder is one of the simplest ways to get this amazingly versatile nutrient into your diet. Ask for your risk-free trial today!
For all these reasons, I tell my patients to add a whey protein shake to their daily diet. It's the best way I know to keep your muscles strong and toned, your immune system healthy and your energy levels high.

Here's another interesting fact about Advanced Protein Powder that shows it's truly one of the most versatile foods you can eat.
It can help you control your weight — whether you want to lose weight or gain a few pounds!
If you are looking to slim down, you can have a protein smoothie with fresh vegetables or fruit as a meal replacement. It helps you shed pounds without losing the lean muscle you need to stay healthy.
If you are looking to maintain your weight or even add a few pounds (as so many of us are, after age 60), have a protein shake as a snack or at bedtime.
If you are looking to strengthen your muscles, simply have a protein shake before or after exercise. The extra protein and amino acids can really ramp up your body's natural muscle-building ability.15
Advanced Protein Powder is especially helpful in your 60s, 70s and 80s, when you may not have as much of an appetite as before. It's a quick, easy way to add protein to your diet.16
