We all want to live our best lives even as we age.
In The Natural View podcast with Todd Pauli and Maggie Jaqua, they have special guest Shawn Baier, VP of Business Development at TSI Group, to discuss healthy aging, overlooked components, and nutritional ingredients to promote healthy aging.
Healthy, Active Aging
There are many various categories to focus on when we talk about healthy aging like joints, bones, and cognitive health. One area that tends to get overlooked when it comes to healthy aging is muscle health.
Unfortunately, we will all experience age-related muscle loss and if not addressed at all it can become a debilitating issue. Our muscles carry out the physical demands of life and preventing muscle loss is easier than trying to restore lost muscle mass and strength.
Muscles Meet myHMB
The good news is there is an ingredient that is clinically proven to help prevent muscle loss – myHMB, scientifically known as beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate or HMB.
HMB in the past has been predominately known as a supplement for bodybuilders to help build muscle and improve recovery, but there is an array of research showing its potential in aging demographics to help prevent muscle loss during times of inactivity like bed rest after an illness or injury. HMB can benefit any individual that wants to improve quality of life as we age.
Healthy Aging at a Cellular Level
We all experience oxidative stress in our lives, and while we can mitigate some of it, we cannot eliminate it. Factors such environmental factors, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, alcohol, overexercising can all cause oxidative stress and when excessive oxidative stress happens it creates highly reactive molecules called free radicals and these can have a negative impact on the health of our cells and bodies.
A Radical Approach to Cellular Health
Hobamine, or 2-hydroxybenzylamine (2-HOBA), is a naturally occurring compound that is at the forefront of new developments to support cellular health, particularly as we age.
Hobamine (2-HOBA) works by rapidly capturing specific reactive compounds formed by oxidative stress. This capture prevents those compounds from binding to and damaging other cellular components like proteins, lipids, or DNA and impeding normal function of the cell.
