Muscle Loss Can Be Slowed With Myostatin Inhibitor

Lifestyles - Thu, 08/06/2015 - 12:22
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - As we age, it's natural to lose both muscle mass and bone density. In fact, according to research, muscle loss starts as early as 30 years old.

The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way.

To understand how to prevent muscle loss over time, you have to understand the science behind muscle growth.

One key regulator of muscle growth is a protein called myostatin. Myostatin exerts an effect on both muscle hypertrophy and hyperplasia, increasing both the number of muscle fibers and fiber sizes. Hypertrophy refers to the increase in the size of muscle cells. In contrast, hyperplasia refers to an increase in the number of cells.

In layman's terms, myostatin regulates how large muscles can get.

It follows that by inhibiting this naturally occurring protein, it would be easier to build muscle.

"So when you get rid of the myostatin gene entirely, you see more muscle fibers, and then you get bigger muscle fibers," Se-Jin Lee, a professor at Johns Hopkins, told NPR in an interview.

One bionutritional supplement that is getting a lot of attention is MYOS Corporation's Fortetropin, a myostatin inhibitor that has been clinically shown to demonstrate positive effects on both muscle thickness and lean body mass. Fortetropin is the active ingredient in MYOS' Re Muscle Health nutritional products. The "Re" in "Re Muscle Health" stands for Rebuild, Rejuvenate, Results.

"The data from the study conducted in our human performance laboratory clearly demonstrates that Fortetropin resulted in significant muscle gains in recreationally trained individuals," said Jacob Wilson, an assistant professor at the University of Tampa, where the study was conducted.

MYOS Chief Medical Officer Robert Ashton said the daily use of Fortetropin combined with exercise "could be beneficial in improving lean muscle mass, which has significant therapeutic effects for overall health, including regulating insulin and glucose levels and combating osteoporosis."

Adding nutritional supplements, like those found at Re Muscle Health, may help slow the effects of muscle loss. The products, which can be used daily to supplement a sensible workout routine, include bars, powders and meal-replacement shakes, and are formulated to help protect and preserve lean, healthy muscle tissue. The products contain a full day's serving of Fortetropin, and 20 grams of protein.
