Muscle loss: A problem that doesn't just occur with age

Muscle loss is a natural process that occurs with age. But it can also become a problem at a young age.

Why?

The answer is simple: we don't move enough.

The normal daily routine of most people in our society consists of many hours of sedentary work:

From bed to the breakfast table ( sit ), into the car-bus-train plane ( sit again) to the desk ( sit again) lunch break ( sit? ) back to the desk ( sit some more), home by car ( sitting right?) Dinner with the family (at the table, of course, sitting ), sometime later some TV...maybe lying down!

Over 40 years ago, the saying reached me: “ Use it or lose it ” or: “ The flesh must be flayed ”! (Joseph Hölzl)

Our muscles, together with the ligaments, tendons and fascia, form the supporting system of our body. Thanks to our balanced muscles, our body stays upright, the spine is supported and we can achieve incredible feats. It's all a question of doing it regularly!

When muscle mass decreases with age, it is called age-related muscle loss, also known as sarcopenia. However, this is not a fate that is inevitable for you!

Two components are particularly important for preventing muscle loss:

The supply of the right nutrients and vital substances and of course, you guessed it, exercise!

Make sure you get the right protein supply

Muscles are made of proteins, so you should definitely eat a diet rich in protein if you want to maintain and build muscle.

Proteins are the basic building blocks of all life . They consist of chains of individual building blocks. These individual building blocks are called amino acids.

All human proteins are made up of 20 - 23 different amino acids .

Of these, 8 amino acids are vital (essential). These essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body itself and must therefore be supplied through food .

All other amino acids are non-essential amino acids and can be produced by the body itself from the essential amino acids.

Leucine , for example, is one of these essential amino acids. Leucine, together with the amino acids valine and isoleucine, is known for its muscle building abilities.

Leucine is the most studied amino acid and is considered the most important amino acid for stimulating muscle building . This can be explained by the fact that leucine is supposed to stimulate insulin secretion, and insulin in turn stimulates protein synthesis.

Of course, the body should not only be supplied with enough leucine, but also with all other 20 amino acids so that it functions well.

Which protein product can we recommend in this case? Of course our MAP Amino - this week with a 10% discount!

Recommendation for optimal success

Take our MAP Amino before and after your sports program . Best taken together with a natural carbohydrate source. By a natural source of carbohydrates we do not mean a chocolate bar or toast with jam, but rather, for example, a banana, honey or 1 to 2 dates.

When combined with a carbohydrate source, insulin output and the muscle-building effect due to leucine are particularly high .

Do sports as you get older

You won't be able to avoid exercise/sport if you want to maintain or rebuild muscle as you get older.

Of course, the muscles won't grow much just by consuming proteins. So if you are still able to exercise, do it !

If you already suffer from isolated physical limitations, find ways to train around them. There are so many different options .

If you are very restricted in your movement and are unable to do sports, then taking MAP Amino is still highly recommended .

An American study has shown that amino acids apparently stimulate the body-building metabolic processes of muscle tissue even without exercise. This can reduce muscle loss in old age . (1)

Quote from Josef Hölzl

Daily training in the gym is a balance to my many sedentary activities (working on the computer or reading books). After training I feel balanced again, which also benefits my sleep.

The fact that I like my appearance better and can do many things that many younger people have to give up on, increases my quality of life enormously! This is the time for me.

MAXIMUS: The natural booster for muscle building and performance

Our HS Activa MAXIMUS is a dietary supplement that is intended to increase the body's testosterone level with a special combination of active ingredients. Testosterone is an important hormone for muscle building and performance.

The ingredients of MAXIMUS are:

  • Tribulus Terrestris: A plant traditionally used in Chinese medicine to increase libido and physical performance.
  • Maca: A root that is also said to have a positive effect on libido and physical performance.
  • Zinc: A mineral involved in the production of testosterone.

How does MAXIMUS work?

The ingredients of MAXIMUS are intended to reinforce each other's effects and thus naturally increase the body's testosterone level. This can lead to a number of positive effects including:

  • Building muscle: Testosterone is an important growth factor for muscle cells. An increased testosterone level can therefore promote muscle building.
  • Improved performance: Testosterone is also involved in the production of energy. An increased testosterone level can therefore increase performance.
  • Decreased body fat: Testosterone can inhibit the conversion of carbohydrates to fat. Increased testosterone levels can therefore contribute to a lower body fat percentage.

Who can take MAXIMUS?

MAXIMUS can be taken by men and women. It is particularly suitable for people who:

  • Want to promote your muscle building
  • Want to increase your performance
  • Want to reduce your body fat percentage

How is MAXIMUS taken?

MAXIMUS is taken in the form of capsules. The recommended daily dose is 3 capsules. The capsules should be taken with sufficient liquid.

MAXIMUS is a natural dietary supplement that can increase the body's testosterone levels. This can lead to a number of positive effects including muscle building, increased performance and reduced body fat.

However, it is important to note that MAXIMUS can only develop its full effect in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Tongkat Ali - the versatile root from Indonesian folk medicine

Tongkat Ali, also known as Eurycoma longifolia, is a plant native to Southeast Asia. It is traditionally used in Chinese medicine to increase libido and physical performance . In recent years, Tongkat Ali has also been studied as a muscle building supplement.

The effect of Tongkat Ali on muscle building is attributed to various factors. For one thing, Tongkat Ali contains compounds that can increase testosterone levels . Testosterone is an important hormone for building muscle because it is involved in protein synthesis. On the other hand, Tongkat Ali can stimulate the activity of growth hormones . Growth hormones are also involved in protein synthesis and play an important role in building muscle .

Studies that have examined the effects of Tongkat Ali on muscle building show that Tongkat Ali can increase muscle strength and muscle mass. A study of 40 men who took Tongkat Ali for 12 weeks found a significant increase in muscle strength and muscle mass. Another study of 30 men who took Tongkat Ali for 8 weeks also found a significant increase in muscle strength and muscle mass.

The results of these studies suggest that Tongkat Ali may be an effective means of increasing muscle growth. However, further studies are needed to investigate the long-term effects of tongkat ali on muscle building.

However, it is important to note that Tongkat Ali can only develop its full effect in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Legal notice : The possible uses of the root extract in Indonesia are for your information only. We offer Tongkat Ali exclusively as a fragrance powder. Fragrance powders are not suitable for consumption. This is not a dietary supplement.
