Sarcopenia, or muscle catabolism (loss), is a major but largely ignored health issue until it becomes critical (usually in the aging population, but the same process happens to everyone to some degree). Maintaining and increasing lean muscle mass is vital to health and is key to successful weight optimization and maintenance. People generally lose muscle mass as they age with poor nutrition, lower protein intake, and decreased physical activity. In an ever-increasing spiral, lean body mass is replaced with body fat, which in turn produces inflammatory cytokines (small cell-signaling protein molecules) and aromatase, which converts testosterone to estrogen, leading to low testosterone levels, particularly in men. This leads to increased body fat, decreased levels of testosterone, reduced hormone production, low energy levels, and numerous diseases of aging.
