Protein is key for building muscle; not only does it give you a better body definition, but it also helps to burn calories. Whatever age you are, eating protein will help firm and tone to protect for the future. After the age of 50 we lose 1 to 2% of muscular mass each year, our strength declines around 1.5% per year and even by up to 3% after the age of 60.
The loss of muscular mass has a big impact on health, strength and the ability to burn calories. Loss in bone mass is also a problem and is associated with low protein intake. An adult should consume 0.8 g protein per kilo body weight while those over 50 should take 1 – 1.2 grams of protein per kilo body weight.

"With 70% of the immune system located in the gut its really no surprise to learn that what you chose to fuel your body with will unsurprisingly have a direct impact on the health of your skin and how it presents itself to the outside world. The gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients from the food you eat, excreting waste and housing both helpful and harmful bacteria. There are many factors that prevent the gut from absorbing the necessary nutrients from food and the skin, hair and nails are often the areas we notice these changes first and become most frustrated with." - Jessica Shand, Naturopathic Nutrition Advisor and Health Coach
