For Older Adults, Good Nutrition and Exercise Are Key To Staying Healthy & Active

at work all of the major muscle groups. Building muscle mass increases coordination, balance and even reduce the risk of falls, according to the CDC. Increased muscle also helps to burn more calories so it also contributes to maintaining healthy weight, said Dr. Franco.

The other part of the muscle-building equation is nutrition, which can be a major hurdle for older adults who often don't have the appetite for protein-rich foods or creamy shake-based nutrition supplements.

"BeneVia's fruit juice formula was developed to be light and tasty, but packed with a proprietary protein blend - including the amino acid leucine - that helps build muscle mass four times more effectively than other protein sources," said Robert Wolfe, PhD, Professor of Geriatrics at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and author of dozens of research articles on protein and aging.

The proprietary protein and amino acid blend available in BeneVia® outperforms weightlifting alone in building muscle. Together, though, simple weightlifting exercises and BeneVia® intake have been clinically shown to drive optimal muscle growth, which can help older adults maintain a healthy weight profile and stay healthy throughout life.

"BeneVia® has its roots in the world's best clinical nutrition research, so we're pleased that new research continues to reinforce our emphasis on physical activity and optimal nutrition," said John Troup, CEO of HealthSpan LLC, maker of BeneVia®.

"The recent research findings not only point to ways of improving healthy living, but also provide a guide as to how nutritional support can play an important role in managing our health as we age. BeneVia's Strength & Energy and Heart products provide a great tasting and convenient way to help achieve this benefit," he concluded.

BeneVia® is now on shelves and available nationally through online retailers. For more information abo
