Muscles are important for everyday physical tasks like picking things up, reaching for something, opening a jar, or getting up from a chair. But as we age, we lose muscle mass, which results in weaker balance, less strength and movement.
Muscle loss is the aging factor that's rarely discussed, and most people accept its signs – such as loss of strength and energy, as a natural part of aging.4
