The TRUTH About Muscle Weakness (and How to Stop It)
Dear Turapür Today Reader,
Let’s face it. We all have days where we don’t feel very ‘strong.’
Whether it’s struggling to carry in bags of groceries, feeling exhausted during routine yardwork, or just lugging a box into the attic, we’ve all said to ourselves…
“I was a lot stronger when I was younger!”
Now you’ve probably been told by your friends, family, and even your doctor that this is all part of ‘getting old.’
And yes, it’s normal to lose some strength as you age.
But for millions of Americans over 50, their muscles and strength are deteriorating and they are becoming weaker by the day.
And it not just a result of getting OLD.
Here’s the shocking truth…
Muscle weakness later in life is caused by a condition called sarcopenia.
If you haven’t heard of it, sarcopenia is quite common. This disease affects nearly one in 10 adults over the age of 50.
And for these folks suffering from sarcopenia, it’s often a mystery as to ‘why’ they have it.
According to research, sarcopenia is caused by an imbalance between signals for muscle cell growth and teardown signals. Cell growth processes are called “anabolism,” and cell teardown processes are called “catabolism.” This imbalance leads the body to become RESISTANT to normal muscle growth signals… thus leading to muscle “loss” at a rapid rate.
Factors like a sedentary lifestyle, nutrition, inflammation, and even stress can all accelerate your chance of developing sarcopenia later in life. And severe cases of sarcopenia can even lead to a decrease in overall life expectancy.
But there is good news.
There are simple steps you can take today to fight sarcopenia!

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
The best thing you can do is stay active.
And no, you DON’T have to start a grueling exercise routine.
Even just taking daily walks has been found to prevent and even REVERSE sarcopenia. One study found that adults over the age of 65 that stuck to a walking routine for six months actually increased their overall muscle mass!
Beyond getting up and moving, consider taking a vitamin D supplement. Studies have found that vitamin D deficiency is common with sarcopenia.
Be sure to have a conversation with your doctor if you are concerned about your strength levels.
