Whether you’re approaching 30, are well into your 40s, pushing 60, or beyond, maintaining muscle mass is vital to your overall health and longevity. And while resistance training is key to building and maintaining muscle as you age, what you fuel your body with is just as, if not more, important. One easy way to help build muscle as you sleep is by providing your body with the right nutrients shortly before bed.

Why Muscle Is Important as You Age

There are numerous reasons why it’s important to build muscle as you age. For instance:

  • More muscle means you enjoy a higher metabolic rate, so you burn more calories even when at rest. This can help you manage your weight more effectively.
  • Regularly lifting weights not only builds stronger muscles but also builds stronger bones, which can reduce the risk of fractures if you fall.
  • Strong muscles enhance mobility, coordination, and balance, which can all help prevent falls to begin with. Stronger muscles also support healthier joints.
  • Having enough muscular strength also helps promote independence. You’re better able to lift objects, climb stairs, or even get out of your chair or in and out of your car.
  • Unfortunately, we’re more likely to face various disease states as we age. Having a good amount of muscle helps us better manage arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, back pain, and more. Muscle mass can also help improve insulin sensitivity, support a healthy balance of inflammation, and promote cardiovascular health.
  • Building your body also boosts your brain. Studies suggest there’s a link between muscle strength, physical fitness, and cognitive function.
  • Exercise is well known for releasing endorphins, which improve mood and reduce feelings of depression or anxiety. Plus, remaining physically active throughout life and building a strong, healthy body can boost self-esteem and improve overall well-being.

Fueling Your Body to Grow Muscle (Even as You Sleep)

In addition to working out to build muscle, you also need to provide the proper nutrients. That starts with good-quality protein sources, such as protein powder, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, milk (preferably organic and grass-fed), quality meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and plant-based protein to provide your muscles with amino acids. Other nutrients that have been shown to support muscle growth include creatine, HMB, and vitamin D.
