Signs your muscles are getting stronger

After the age of 40, adults can use up to 8% of muscle every proceeding decade. This biological process is called sarcopenia and though it cannot be stopped, it can be slowed down.7 Working on your muscle health can help you gain independence and you become motivated to do more. Make sure that you are supporting your muscles with a balance of good physical activity and muscle supporting nutrition with high quality proteins like HMB (Hydroxymethylbutyrate) that slow down the breakdown of muscles in Ensure Gold with HMB for Muscles. Vegetarian or people who don’t drink milk can get their full share of HMB too with Ensure Gold Plant. 2, 6

Stronger Legs

Your legs are bearing a majority of your body weight and they are good indicators of your health. Healthy leg muscles enable better blood flow of oxygen and other nutrients, thus reducing inflammation and muscle stiffness. With an improved skeletal structure in your leg, balance is improved with reduced risk of injuries or aggravating previous ones.1 Lack of stiffness in the muscles also improves sleep quality as you are less likely to be woken up from pain. With higher quality sleep, the body has more time to rest and do repairs. Physical activity in general reduces blood pressure, body fat, and onset of related health conditions.2

Less Joint Pain

Muscle quality matters because every other function depends on the contraction efficiency to move. With improved strength, there is less stress on the ligaments and tendons surrounding the joint, thus decreasing pain symptoms.2, 4 Keep in mind, when working on joints and legs, to do warm ups. It will kick start, so to speak, the muscles and lubricate joints for better range of motion.3 Better range of motion? You do not have to worry about slipping a disk or misaligning a joint when making sudden movements.5

Motivated to Do More

There is no better motivator than feeling much steadier on your legs. A healthier lifestyle benefits you and loved ones by not having to worry about you. Since exercises like yoga, walking, or gardening can be done at home, add light machines for improvement. Stationary bikes, stepping machines, or even manual treadmills can add variety to the type of workout you want with an outdoor-like experience.2, 3, 4

Once you get started, you will want to do more and live a healthy diet with no compromise. Important nutrients to remember for muscle strength are high quality proteins, Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Calcium. Especially HMB (Hydroxymethylbutyrate), which is one of the best nutrients for preventing muscle degradation.

But it is less likely that a senior will eat enough food to get the recommended amount. For this very reason, Ensure Gold with HMB for Muscles went through many years of research to provide 1.5 grams of HMB per two servings, equal to what you get from 6,000 avocados. Enriched with high quality proteins, 28 vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Calcium, just 2 servings of Ensure Gold with HMB for Muscles with food a day, a senior can see improvements in leg and joint strength within 8 weeks*.  For vegetarians or people who don’t drink milk, Ensure Gold Plant is an alternative choice to not miss out on Ensure’s variety of nutritional benefits.
