Great question: Research shows that age related physical impairments can be reversed by 30 gm protein supplementation immediately after your intense resistive workout (for strength), dietary restriction of calories to promote weight loss (lean body effects), and creatine supplementation. Muscle mass will increase with strengthening. Enjoy

At what age can you drink supplements to build muscle mass?

Exercise & protein: You may take supplements at any age, but to build muscle mass you need to exercise and do more excercise. Weight training may be helpful. Diet alone will not add muscle mass.
