As we age, our body loses much of its natural electric energy, similar to a battery gradually losing its charge. Between the ages of 30 and 50, we experience a slow but progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass (10%), replaced mostly by adipose (FAT) tissue and thinning connective tissue. Another 40% is lost between the ages of 50-80. In addition to the loss of muscle mass, aging brings about a decrease in muscle strength, a slowing in muscle reflexes, and a loss of flexibility, all contributing to the degeneration of our entire system. Digestion slows down, circulation, respiration, the ability to fight off infection, the list goes on and on.
