Recently released, the Senior Protein Intake Sunwarrior report highlights that as individuals age, they lose muscle mass and strength. The report also acknowledges that aging joints need to be supported by healthy, strong muscles and that it is essential that older people exercise and eat a balanced diet to maintain muscle mass, stability and to reduce falls and bone breakage.

To develop and maintain muscle mass states the report, seniors need to consume more protein than they did when they were younger. The recommended daily allowance for protein, according to the report, is just .8 grams per kilogram of body weight. However, the Harvard Medical School, states the report, recommends that the daily intake for seniors who exercise (resistance training) should be between 1 to 1.3 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.

Based on the information published by the Harvard Medical School, the report suggests that a 175-pound gentleman who exercises needs approximately 79 to 103 grams of protein daily, compared to the recommended daily allowance of just 63 grams. The more exercise this man does, suggests the Sunwarrior report, the higher his protein intake needs are.
