It’s a loss everyone will start to experience after that milestone 30th birthday but few people wake up to the reality of its effects until it’s staring back at them at age 50.

Researchers are now stressing that sarcopenia is not just associated with frailty and appearance as a result of age-related muscle loss, but it’s also the key component behind chronic diseases including diabetes, and can cause major complications in certain diagnoses such as cancer. Studies also suggest that muscle strength and health can more accurately predict the likelihood of death by heart disease than monitoring blood pressure.

Sherry Torkos, a holistic pharmacist and author of more than a dozen books on natural health and healing says people who have more muscle mass just live longer because they can combat disease, and that the primary problem with age-related muscle degeneration is that doctors don’t prescribe anything for it because other than recommending resistance training, which they often don’t do, there is no pharmaceutical treatment to reverse muscle loss. Sherry shares three rejuvenating muscle moves you can make to stave off sarcopenia and regain control of potentially life-threatening diseases that are influenced by lack of muscle.
