The Evolution of Muscle Health – Could this be the most important determinant for healthy ageing?

Bone health – most particularly osteoporosis – has been on the mainstream health agenda for the past two decades, a fact that has led to much better diagnosis and management of the condition. But what about muscle health? Skeletal muscle mass is responsible for our ability to move and function and is essential to overall health and wellbeing. We now know that muscle mass begins to decline from around the age of 40. This decline, compounded over many years as we age, can have huge health and quality of life implications. In this presentation John Burstow discusses:

  • Why muscle health is becoming a major emerging category within consumer healthcare
  • What we can learn from the evolution of bone health to apply to muscle health
  • Solutions on the horizon for preserving muscle mass as we age
