Maintaining mobility is key for older adults to remain independent and participate actively in society. Loss of muscle mass, strength and physical function below a critical threshold is called sarcopenia and is associated with delayed recovery from illness. Sarcopenia is a strong driver of frailty, which is characterized by reduced reserves and resistance to stressors.
By 2050, over 200 million people expected to suffer from Sarcopenia

An adequate amount of high-quality protein can help preserving muscle mass, thus improving quality of life
