I’ve got a cousin a few years older than me who was always strong as an ox. When I was a kid, he was practically Paul Bunyan in my eyes.
Now, when I see him, I don’t see a guy who can chop down a tree with one swing of an axe.
He can barely mow his own lawn!
Yes, Father Time robs us of plenty as we get older, including our strength. I say it’s time to steal it back — fast — because new research spots a quick trick to regaining that lost muscle.
And you’re not going to believe what it is.
It’s the extract of a tree bark from the French maritime pine. I know, this sounds like I’ve lost my acorns — but bear with me here, because I’m not barking up the wrong tree.
An incredible new study shows this extract can stop the loss of muscle and give you back your strength.
No more embarrassing calls for help because you can’t do things for yourself, and no more struggles with life’s everyday chores.
In this study, seniors in their 70s were put through a light exercise program. Some got a French maritime pine bark extract called Pycnogenol, while the others didn’t get anything.
Two months later, there was a night-and-day difference as the folks who got the real deal were stronger and tougher by every measure.
They were more than three times better able to carry heavy objects than folks who didn’t get the supplement. They had two and half times the improvement in the ability to climb stairs. They were even able to walk more than twice the distance of those who didn’t get the supplement.
This wasn’t just a matter of FEELING strong. They WERE stronger — because tests revealed that the folks who took the supplement had 40 percent lower levels of the protein that escapes in urine as your muscle melts away.
So not surprisingly, the seniors who took Pycnogenol improved their overall fitness scores by 46 percent, compared to the folks who didn’t get the stuff.
This is a major breakthrough, friend, because you lose 1 to 2 percent of your muscle every year once you head north of 60. Some folks lose even more… they shed two or three times that level.
When it gets that bad, it’s known as sarcopenia, a muscle-wasting disorder that leads to frailty, disability and an early death.
You don’t have to be one of them.
Along with Pycnogenol, creatine supplements are proven to help you to regrow lost muscle so you stay strong in your golden years.
