Muscle is key for hormonal health, vitality and longevity.

Did you know that having muscle benefits you well beyond just body composition and mobility.

Having muscle is not just about looking good in a bathing suit!

If you have muscle, your body actually functions better and this is especially important as we age. We can lose up to 10% of our muscle each decade without changing anything!

Check out these benefits of having muscle:

✅ Muscle is your metabolic currency. The stronger and healthier your muscles, the more carbohydrates and fat your body burns.

✅ Muscle helps you to regulate blood sugar and blood lipids.

✅ Muscle reduces inflammation. Muscle can be considered an endocrine organ as it secretes myokines when contracted which creates a systemic anti-inflammatory environment. Myokines are, proteins that help regulate metabolism in all other tissues in the body.

✅ Muscle increases your immune response and cognitive function!

✅ Muscle improves bone density.

You can stimulate and protect muscle by eating more protein and through resistance training.

Since aging bodies process protein less efficiently, we need more of it to maintain muscle mass and strength.

Bottom line – want to combat aging? Life weights, eat more protein and always eat your veggies!!
