Why is protein important for good mobility?
Protein helps to maintain muscle mass and growth, which supports our movement.
Studies show that adults from the age of 30 lose as much as 1% of muscle mass each year. Maintaining adequate levels of lean muscle mass through protein intake and adequate exercise – together with good bone and joint health – is essential for good mobility, as we get older.
