"If you want to age gracefully, this study shows that proteins taken after exercise keep your muscles strong and fit," said Gerald Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal.

"You've got to feed your body with the proper nutrients after a work-out. Fortunately, protein shakes are cheap, readily available and some say taste good," added Weissmann.

The study has been published in the FASEB Journal.
