Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of muscle mass and strength caused by aging. Sarcopenia is one component of the Frailty syndrome. People lose 0.5-1% of
muscle mass per year after the age of 25. This loss accelerates in the 50s and accelerates again in the late 60s
and early 70s. Most authorities state that new muscle can not be created after 60.
Sarcopenia is characterized first by a decrease in the size
and strength of the muscle, which causes weakness and frailty. During sarcopenia, there is a replacement of muscle
fibers with fat and an increase in fibrosis. For
more information see the Wikipedia
A: No. There is currently no cure for Sarcopenia.
Scientists are working hard on finding a drug that will stop or reverse
Sarcopenia, and there are some promising candidates in the pipeline. But
there is currently no cure for Sarcopenia.
SMM™ is a dietary supplement that, when combined with
our specially designed exercise program, can slow the normal decline in
muscle mass. Some individuals may experience a significant
increase in muscle mass but we don't make that claim and that isn't the
purpose of SMM.
A: You need to take SMM™,
and exercise, for as long as you want to maintain your muscles. When you
stop taking SMM™ and stop exercising, your
body will return to the gradual loss of muscles mass rate based on your
age and physiology. However, you will be starting from a higher level.
A: Yes, there can be. Please see the the next FAQ and
the disclaimer page for details. You may be allergic to some ingredient -
although we haven't seen any allergies in our testing and we
intentionally avoided ingredients known to cause allergic reactions. You
must consume adequate fluids when taking SMM™.
Follow the directions carefully. SMM™
contains a small amount of caffeine so avoid taking SMM™ right before bedtime. Always consult your
physician before starting an exercise program or
using any supplement.
In general, anyone who has a condition where protein
processed should not take SMM™
. Also, anyone
with kidney or liver disease
should avoid extra protein in their diet. SMM™
provides such additional protein. Anyone who should not take stimulants should not take SMM™
because it contains a small amount of caffeine
Q: Will SMM™
interfere with my medications?
A: There are so many
medications, both over-the-counter and prescription, that it is impossible
to answer this question. If you are taking any medication, you must
discuss possible interactions with your physician and your pharmacist.
Take the bottle with you so your advisor can review the list of
Well, that depends. You will be adding
about 50 grams of protein to your diet. You will
also be adding a couple grams of cane sugar. If your
don't increase your exercise and keep eating just
the same, you might gain weight.
People respond differently to SMM. Some folks
tell us SMM acts like an appetite suppressor -
they're just not as hungry. Other folks have an
initial weight gain which levels off after the
If you increase your exercise and eat sensibly,
you should lose a few pounds as you replace some
fat with lean muscle.
Well, that depends. Folks who report
outstanding results (individual results will vary) tell us
that they've changed the way they eat. These folks
stop drinking beer and sodas, stop eating snacks,
and eat more protein at meal time.
Why? Because soda and sweet foods lose their addictive
properties and protein foods seem to 'taste better'.
Another weight losing effect is that as folks
feel stronger, they increase their activity. We've
had customers tell us that they're enjoying
activities that they'd given up years ago.
Just getting off the sofa is a great way to lose
a few pounds!
Now we're not claiming that SMM is a substitute for proper
nutrition. SMM is not intended to replace
meals. It's not a diet. But it can help you
lead a more active life and that can lead to weight
