The key ingredient in meat that will keep you strong
For millions of seniors, getting older means getting weaker -- and getting weaker means turning frail and setting yourself up for falls, crippling injuries, and even death.
And as I told you yesterday, it can all be traced back to shrinking muscle.
But you can take action now to avoid it -- SAVE your muscles, STOP the wasting, and even REVERSE the damage -- and all you have to do is ignore everything the mainstream tells you about muscle protection.
If you haven't asked your own doc about this yet, I'll save you the copay and tell you exactly what he'll say: Eat a low-fat diet and get regular exercise. Join a gym, sweat to the oldies, Zumba the night away -- torture yourself in the name of "fitness," and all your muscles will magically grow back.
What a load of bunk!
All that exercise will do is wreck your joints and strain your heart -- because the REAL key to keeping your muscles strong isn't living with blood, strain, or tears. It's with the healthy everyday movements I mentioned yesterday and a diet rich in meat.
Along with essential proteins and healthy fats, meats (especially beef) contain an amino acid that's critical to muscle health. It's called creatine -- and if you're getting up there in years, you'll likely want even more than what you can get from diet alone.
You'll need a supplement, and this is where you have to be careful.
A lot of what's out there is aimed at preening bodybuilders with huge muscles and tiny brains. This stuff can contain far too much creatine per serving for seniors -- and that's not all.
They can also contain sugars or dangerous sugar substitutes, artificial flavors, and a whole bunch of other stuff you don't need. And many of them also contain ingredients aimed at boosting testosterone production.
Now, you know me. I'm all for boosting T levels -- but you have to do it the right way, or you could face some unintended consequences. The neckless mutants who take this stuff may have huge muscles... but they're positively tiny somewhere else.
How do you think they fit into those itty-bitty man-bikinis?
And of course, women definitely need to be careful with testosterone -- unless they want a gig as a bearded lady in the local circus.
So make sure you get your creatine. But get it from healthy meats and a sensible supplement that contains nutrients aimed at seniors and normal folks -- not gym rats with shrunken junk.
