Can Exercise Turn Back the Hands of Time?

As we age, our bodies succumb to muscle loss and the effects of gravity begin to impact our physical health and appearance. But exercise can slow parts of the aging process.

 

Understanding the Aging Process

As we get older, our muscles shrink and weaken in a natural process is known as sarcopenia. This degenerative loss of muscle tissue triggers mitochondrial dysfunction and causes the body’s primary method of energy production to slow down. According to a 2007 study, a typical human being experiences “a strength loss of about 1.0% per year” that accelerates with each passing decade.

 

What is the Solution?

The 2007 study found that older individuals “were able to improve strength by approximately 50% to levels that were only 38% less than that of young individuals.” In essence, this confirms that seniors actively engaged in regular weight training can close the strength gap between themselves and counterparts nearly 40 years younger—from 59% to 38% (a 36% improvement rate within a mere six months of study).

Researchers responsible for the study made the discovery that, in fact, “healthy older adults show a gene expression profile in skeletal muscle consistent with mitochondrial dysfunction and associated processes such as cell death, as compared with young individuals.” Basically, genetic patterns of aging-caused muscle loss in non-exercising older, adults are linked to problems with our cellular energy factories.

They also went on to state that, following a period of resistance exercise training in older adults, “We found that age-associated transcriptome expression changes were reversed, implying a restoration of a youthful expression profile.”

In layman’s terms, regular and consistent weight training can reverse nearly 40 years of muscle aging and help to restore vitality.

 

Boosting Exercise Effectiveness and Recovery

While weight training on its own is a proven way of turning back the hands of time, older men and women can benefit even further by adding all-natural supplements to their healthy lifestyle, bolstering the effectiveness of their exercise regimens as well as boosting muscle recovery and minimizing soreness.

For increased recovery and muscle support, consider PerfectAmino™. One tablet is equivalent to one gram of protein, and this all-natural amino acid supplement is meticulously tested to enable the body to utilize 99% of its contents and to encourage protein synthesis, boosting the immune system and enabling faster healing. Therefore, you can push yourself further and make more positive gains without hurting yourself.

And speaking of soreness, we often experience swelling and inflammation when we push our physical boundaries.

For a healthy way to combat muscle inflammation, try adding BodyHealth Inflam-Arrest to your nutrient intake. Featuring NuSorb™ technology for enhanced bioavailability— fused with a formulation of certified organic turmeric, ginger and wild-crafted Boswellia extract—it’s a quick and highly effective way of tackling chronic inflammation so you can get back to those weights and recover from years of muscle reduction.

Compared to conventional approaches, this restorative dietary supplement works beautifully in conjunction with PerfectAmino™ and consistent weight training to protect your body and health.

While we can never fully step back in time, through a sensible, nutrient-dense diet, supplements, regular weight training and determination, you can feel years younger.

What Raises and Lowers Growth Hormone Levels Naturally?
What Raises and Lowers Growth Hormone Levels Naturally?

by Dr. David Minkoff April 08, 2021 6 min read 0 Comments

Growth Hormone (GH or HGH) is one of the most important hormones in regard to muscle gain and fat loss for men and women:

 It increases muscle mass, increases protein synthesis, strengthens bone, internally makes your metabolism “younger,” and is, to a large degree, “anti-aging” in its effects. And it does this in large part by stimulating the uptake of amino acids in the cells. 

In fact, GH is so closely tied to amino acids, that not only does GH stimulate the uptake of aminos, but taking aminos stimulates the release of GH to get the cells to take in the aminos.

So-called “energy drinks” litter the shelves in health food stores and grocery stores. Each brand promises to deliver the energy boost you need for workouts or just to make it through the day.

The sad truth is that most commercial drinks and drink powders come with a steep price to your health.

Most of the popular brands contain stimulants such as caffeine and high levels of sugar. They make you feel jittery and wired, with a crash that comes soon after.
