It is inevitable that we all will lose muscle mass as we age, but there is a solution that can help – HMB + Vitamin D3
At some point in time, 100% of the population will be affected by age-related muscle loss. In fact, muscle loss accelerates starting at age 40. By 80, the average person will lose 30 – 40% of their muscle mass and 20-40% of their strength.
How to Improve Muscle Health
“We should all be using something to stem the problem of muscle loss, because once we notice it, it may be too late,” comments Larry Kolb, president of TSI USA LLC
The best way to reduce age-related muscle loss is to build up a muscle reserve. This can be hard without the right diet and training regimen. But there is a proven ingredient combination that can help.
A year-long study found that HMB and Vitamin D3 improved muscle function in older adults, even without exercise. HMB helps boost muscle health by stimulating protein synthesis while reducing protein breakdown. High levels of Vitamin D have also been associated with greater strength and superior muscle function, especially in older adults. This study helps indicate how these nutrients can benefit an entire generation of people.
With more than 20 years of research, 50 human studies, 40 review articles, and 4 meta-analyses, HMB has been proven to be effective in supporting muscle health. Want to learn more behind the research? View our studies here.
