On March 15, Muscular Development Store responds to an article published on the Care 2, detailing causes of muscle loss and ways to prevent it.
According to Care 2, sarcopenia is the medical term for muscle loss and lack of strength as a result of aging. The article says sarcopenia is basically osteoporosis but for the muscles, a sign of physical disability and linked to problems in balance, vitality, fractures and accidents.
Your muscles, according to Care 2, are healthiest during your late teens to mid-20s. After the age of 25, muscle mass slowly declines around 10 percent. Muscle mass in people age 50 or older reduces as a rapid rate. The article says an 80-year-old person has a muscle mass a little more than half of what it was when they were 20.
Care 2 reports the only way to really prevent sarcopenia is to keep building and strengthening muscle mass as you continue to age.
Brian Turner, a spokesperson for the Muscular Development Store, says people suffering from sarcopenia should consider taking creatine and implementing a daily weight-training program to keep their muscles strong.
Turner says a big problem is motivating older people to exercise. In order to maximize results, Turner suggests older people use creatine to accelerate muscle growth. “Creatine is a natural muscle-building supplement that you can use as you train,” he says. “For older people, exercise is an essential way to keep muscles active. Aging muscles contribute to a lot of accidents and falls. I recommend mixing some creatine powder into a shake and drinking it before doing some weightlifting.”
Turner suggests consulting a doctor before conducting any exercise program or taking supplements.
