How Aging affects your Muscles and How Supplementation can help!

The following links point to just a few of the available research, information, and opinion concerning Sarcopenia. We've included a few research articles intended for the scientific community. But, most of the articles are written for laymen.  We've added a few "Tidbits" or brief statements taken from a variety of sources.

Please note that Strongage SMM™ doesn't include all the vitamins mentioned in the Vitamins section. Some vitamins have mixed effects - especially DHEA. We felt it was best that you investigate the risks and benefits of such ingredients for your self. This is an area where on size does not fit all. In the future we will be posting links to articles written by members of our staff. We're also considering offering selected vitamins for those who wish to add them to their daily routine.

Vitamins – Why we recommend

·         Vitamin D – Even more essential  as we age

o   After examining evidence in support of raising recommended daily intake of vitamin D, IOF researchers issued a new position statement specifically aimed at older adults

1) Daily intake of 800 to 1,000 IU
2) Daily intake of 2,000 IU for those who have osteoporosis, get limited sun exposure, or are obese

Americans, young and old, have been found in many studies to be quite low in vitamin D.

Dieting alone may not help stave off type 2 diabetes; muscle mass, strength important
low skeletal muscle mass and strength — is often found in obese people and older adults; it has been hypothesized that sarcopenia puts individuals at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.

SAMe and DHEA both provide antidepressant and anti-inflammatory effects. While evening doses of SAMe may cause sleep issues due to a "stimulating effect," DHEA promotes sleep.
