Protein Three Times a Day Makes Seniors Stronger
We’ve already discovered here that protein is not only vital for senior citizens, but that they may not be getting enough. A new study backs this up, and goes a step further, showing that “even distribution of daily protein intake across meals is independently associated with greater muscle strength” in older adults. The research, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, has significant implications since seniors often do not consume adequate protein at all three meals.
