Why focus on Sarcopenia?
"Muscle is an independent organ, the largest organ in the body." Just like fat tissue, it is involved in functions such as the secretion of hormones, like insulin, and influences biological processes like metabolism and inflammation. The independent role of muscle is underappreciated."
We focus on sarcopenia because we believe preventing and stopping it is the single best way to ensure a positive aging experience.
How do you know if you are at risk?
Symptoms of sarcopenia are particularly noticeable in the performance decline of daily activities that were once taken for granted, such as climbing stairs, getting out of chairs, or walking briskly. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms we strongly recommend that you come in for a Sarcopenia Screening immediately.

The good news is that research has shown the progression of sarcopenia can be delayed and even reversed given proper interventions. At VitalityHealth, we continue to lead scientific studies to develop the most up-to-date, evidence-proven and technology-backed solutions to help you BEAT SARCOPENIA!
