Protein Strengthens Our Bodies

Did you know that protein strengthens our bodies? We use it to build and maintain bones, skin, and muscles. But as we age, we naturally lose muscle mass—up to 8% per decade after 40.

We are joined by nutrition expert Dr. Paul Wischmeyer to talk about how we can get that much needed protein in our diet.

Dr. Wischmeyer shares the importance of eating protein every day, since our bodies don’t store it the same way that we store carbohydrates and fat. One way we can get protein is from eating meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, and other soy-based foods.

Another option is Ensure Enlive advanced nutrition shake. It has 20 grams of protein, plus HMB, which works with protein to help maintain and rebuild muscle.

If you or someone you know has experienced muscle loss, see your health care physician.
