Did you know that over 40-year-olds might lose up to 8 per cent of their muscular mass every decade? After the age of 70, the pace of decrease may double. Sarcopenia, or advanced muscle loss, affects roughly one-third of persons over the age of 50. Muscles are crucial for organ function, skin health, immunity and metabolism, as well as for common physical acts like picking things up, reaching for something, opening a jar or getting out of a chair. To put it another way, keeping muscle mass as you become older is critical to living a happy and healthy life. "Muscle loss is an ageing factor that is rarely discussed, and people accept its signs, such as a loss of strength and energy, as a natural part of ageing," says Ganesh Kadhe, Associate Director Medical and Scientific Affairs at Abbott Nutrition. "However, muscle fitness can often predict how we will age and remain active and independent."

The good news is that you may assist, prevent or delay muscle loss by taking the appropriate precautions. While muscle loss is unavoidable as we age, it does not have to be.
To stay strong as you age, start following the tips below to fuel and keep muscles fit for years to come!
1. Engage in regular exercise, including resistance training, to maintain muscles and strength.
2. Eat good source of protein from lean meats, eggs and beans; aim for 25-30 grams of protein at every meal.
3. Choose a balanced diet full of veggies, fruits, whole grains, proteins, healthy fats and key vitamins and minerals like calcium and vitamin D.
4. Consider taking other muscle health ingredients, like HMB.
5. Talk to your healthcare provider about nutrition, especially if you are ill, hospitalised or recovering from surgery, to manage illness-related muscle loss.

Explori-dating: While what we're looking for has changed but this hasn't necessarily made dating super serious.

Looking ahead to 2022, more than half of daters in India would describe their approach to dating as exploratory (55 per cent).

Power PDA: With vaccination rates increasing, PDA is back in a big way and it looks like it's not just the celebrities that are into it. 73 per cent of single Indians on Bumble say that they are more open to public displays of affection post-pandemic.
Samarpita Samaddar, India Communications Director, Bumble said: "If the last two years have taught us anything, it's that people are being more mindful of what they are looking for in a partner and more intentional about dating at their own time and pace. As we head into the new year, there is a sense of hope and excitement around dating, both virtual and IRL, as India lifts restrictions across states. With over 70 per cent of single Indians looking to 'reset' their dating lives, 2022 looks likely to be a big year for romance."

Holo, Tezos and potentially HUH Token are cryptocurrencies that have made long term holders a lot of money or could produce excellent profits in the future. Holo and Tezos may not have been heavily in the public eye in the grand scheme of cryptocurrency because more significant currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum exist. However, when examining the data, Holo and Tezos have produced large amounts of profit for those committed to holding the crypto.
HUH Token could be the next opportunity for people to purchase and hold. The token is currently in presale, however, that presale is ending very soon and anyone who misses out may regret it in the future. As demonstrated by Holo, Tezos and many cryptos before and after them, early investments will allow holders to benefit in the long run and even potentially in the short run.
Follow NewsGram on Quora Space to get answers to all your questions.
Holo is a distribution platform that focuses on hosting decentralised applications, otherwise known as DApps. Their framework is also quite unique as it does not require blockchain technology to create these DApps. HoloFuel is replacing Holo (HOT) once it has been thoroughly tested and released.
The lowest accessible price point that an investor could have purchased Holo was at $0.0002189. According to www.coinmarketcap.com. Purchasing $1000 worth at that low point and selling it at the highest market price of $0.03157, would have resulted in a value of just over $140,000.
Tezos is a blockchain network that revolves around smart contracts. Tezos was developed so that it can constantly be improved and evolve over time without any major issues. This gives them an advantage over other coins that were created early on the crypto timeline without much scope for the future. Tezos has also seen support from exchanges like Binance and Coinbase. They allow Tezos to be staked on both of these market-leading exchanges.
Tezos was available from as little as $0.3146. Purchasing Tezos with $1000 would grant you just over 3000 coins. Selling this for Tezos's highest price, $9.18, would result in a return of almost $30,000.
HUH Token is in presale and therefore could produce profits that exceed the existing data for Tezos and Holo. Tezos and Holo's profits were achieved by holding onto these cryptocurrencies and getting in early to watch the value increase over time.
The amount of HUH Token you own will increase over time simply through holding onto the currency. When people purchase and sell HUH Token, everyone holding the currency will receive more of it. This happens because a small fee is attached to each of the transactions that take place, the fee is then reallocated to all holders' wallets.
HUH Token is providing one million dollars worth of liquidity; this will be split evenly among Pancakeswap and UniSwap. The creators of HUH Token have also stated that they will be incorporating more exchanges as soon as possible. This signifies to many that HUH Token are aiming to continue developing and improving their project for a long time. The liquidity will be locked in for two years demonstrating their commitment to the project.
The potential for HUH Token is extremely promising. The features discussed here are only some of the many ways HUH Token is exciting to potential buyers. It is encouraged that anyone interested visits their website to find out more. Many current and future holders will be hoping the HUH Token surpasses the profits made by Holo and Tezos. With more people than ever involved in cryptocurrency, this should be feasible in much less time.
