Why focus on Sarcopenia?
We focus on sarcopenia because we believe preventing and stopping it is the single best way to ensure a positive aging experience.
"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."
-Dr. Bette Caan Kaiser Permanente of Northern California Division of Research
Progression of the disease is associated with an increased risk of:
» Falls & Fractures
» Certain Cancers
» Parkinson's Disease
» Heart Disease
» Cognitive Decline
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!
