The Recipe For Aging Gracefully And Adding Life To Your Years

No one wants aging to happen to them, and yet.

While eventually we'll all lose the fight, that doesn't mean we can't go down swinging, and the good news is the recipe for aging without frailty is exceedingly straight forward and was recently spelled out in a systematic review published in the British Journal of General Practice.

The magic formula the 46 included studies pointed to? A mix of regular strength training with regular protein supplementation.

Spelled out a bit further?

20-25 minutes of strength training 4x per week and the purposeful inclusion of protein with every meal and snack (or alternatively, two daily protein supplements providing 25g of protein each).

Though the aforementioned formula won't guarantee a long life, the evidence certainly suggests it'll help to provide a better one adding life to your years if not years to your life.
