How does Ageless Muscle Work?Updated 5 months ago

The power of Ageless Muscle to combat losses in muscle mass and strength can be traced back to its four clinically-studied ingredients, which work uniquely and synergistically to help you stay lean, strong, and fit as you age:

  • myHMB®, an amino acid metabolite, is a superhero ingredient for muscle preservation and building, as it uniquely turns on muscle protein synthesis (i.e., muscle building) while also inhibiting muscle breakdown – a double whammy for building and maintaining muscle size and strength. With over 50 human studies, 40 review studies, and 4 meta-analyses proving its effectiveness, it has been shown to improve body composition, increase fat metabolism and decrease body fat, increase muscle mass and strength, reduce muscle damage and soreness, accelerate recovery from exercise, and improve functional reserve and muscle work capacity. 
  • Creatine, a naturally occurring compound found mainly in red meat and seafood, is the ultimate energy molecule that fuels one of the key energy systems for your muscles—the phosphagen system. This system fuels short, high-intensity activities essential to maintain your muscle mass, strength, and power as you age. As you can see, Creatine and HMB work on different pathways in the body, and along those lines, there’s great synergy between the two; that is, research shows that when combined, HMB + Creatine leads to even greater results – in terms of increasing muscle mass and strength – than either alone.
  • Betaine, a powerful nutrient that’s found naturally in foods like beets, seafood and spinach, helps pull water into your muscle cells and keep them properly hydrated, a critical factor for healthy muscle function.
  • Vitamin D helps unlock the benefits of HMB in your body, making it essential for healthy muscle function. Studies show incredible synergy between vitamin D and HMB; in other words, without adequate vitamin D levels, HMB won't work as effectively, if at all, and this is particularly true in older adults. In fact, research shows that the combination of HMB plus vitamin D increases muscle mass and strength in older adults even without exercise!
