For purity products Dr Levin walking back to the shop it's great to be here with you today Pat and we have a very exciting topic to cover today packed they were talking about strength and power how to get it back even if you're in your fifties sixties seventies eighties so if you want to feel better if you want to feel stronger this is some very important information we're going to cover today yeah this is an exciting topic talk to me about this important message today what molecule are we talking about and how it's impacting the lives of people who follow the science right we're talking about a new supplement its called ever strong and it features an exciting molecule called creatine now Pat a lot of our listeners may have heard of creatine I know you've used creatine right but for those that don't know about creatine it's mainly used in the Olympics circles professional athletes bodybuilders college high school athletes because it does something extraordinary and what I'm about to tell you is proven by hundreds and hundreds of human studies so here's what creatine does for us it helps us to get stronger more powerful helps put muscle mass on the body and it help protect us from losing muscle tissue as we get older we know that's a big part of aging not only that Pat great for the brain great from memory and helps promote bone strength as well so an amazing molecule that everybody needs to know about can you share some of the science and tell us why you're calling creatine one of the best kept secrets to healthy aging sure what we need to understand what creatine is that it's a natural molecule to the body it's in every single cell tissue organ in your system and its job in the body is to generate and maintain strength and power it's in every single cell in the body ninety five percent of it however is in your muscle tissue because that's what we tend to use it the most it powers up the muscles it's good for strong muscle contraction and it's important to help maintain strength and muscle contractions when you're using them over and over again for instance if you're working out at the gym if you're playing sports golf tennis anything like that it keeps your muscles powered up in their high energy state so they're strong and ready for action no Pat here's the key this is so important for those of us in our fifties sixties seventies you see we have lots and lots of creatine when we were young we had little service that was coming out of areas we had lots of creatine our bodies made a lot of it but as we get older like everything else we don't do that as well so we have less creatine in our muscles now the good news is that hundreds and hundreds of Uman studies show that when you supplement with creatine it goes to work or go straight to your muscles absorb easily it pumps up the creatine in your muscle tissue and you will get stronger you get more powerful not only that it help support memory and brain health and it helps support the strength of your bones you know we were talking before the show and you were talking about how elliptic athletes have been using creatine for years to enhance their strength and performance tell me more well this creatine is V. creamier sports nutrition supplement there's no question about that had you been used it bodybuilders know about it athletes know about it creatine is the premier sports nutrients you know back twenty twenty five years ago the Olympic athletes and their coaches of course we knew about it they knew it made you bigger and stronger and faster than it was natural for the body was supposed to be there but they were a little bit afraid to supplement with it because they were freed it might be considered cheating that it might be considered too much of an edge but back in nineteen ninety eight the international Olympic committee they came out the officially confirm that I'm quoting here creatine can be used by athletes to enhance their performance and now it's not just for athletes anymore right because the studies are clearly showing that for adults for people in their fifties sixties seventies this stuff is amazing and has this incredible new formulation we call it ever strong because that's exactly what it does it helps you get stronger and stay strong work with hundreds of human studies and it's the purest form of creatine money can buy the stuff from Europe the stuff is fantastic we should point out this naturally occurring in red meat and promised in order to get the amounts that are going to benefit you you have to eat large amounts of red meat like four pounds of red meat and that most people are going to do that right what about vegetarians they can be creating deficient exactly when I have a vegetarian that comes in here and their energy deficient and I put him on ever strong he noticed the benefits almost right away because they've been so low on a younger person out there it's staying away from red meat if you're staying away from meat in general this is for you you definitely want to add that ever strong side so obviously this works with athletes but you say creatine is going mainstream a lot of studies are showing that folks in their fifties sixties seventies and beyond creatine can be a cornerstone compound to help people stay strong stay healthy stay sharp stay vital right graphically I mean this is the ideal muscle enhancing strengthening muscle protecting nutrients for folks as we get older fifty posters like you and me Pat let's go to a couple of studies on seniors distance so this will be one on the guys and one of the girls okay first on the guys love the title of this one creatine supplementation improves muscular performance in older men a study done at several American universities a group of men get this at age fifty nine to seventy two Hey you know we know that's not when people are known for getting stronger right right so this was just a one week study people need to understand that that's how effective and rapidly this stuff works get this the guys are creatine they put on four pounds of lean mass reg muscle tissue for those that don't know that it shows the build the muscles and the heart rate the muscles nicely they increase the strength of their chest press by seven percent the increase the strength of the leg exercises they were doing by fifteen percent Pat they could get in and out of a chair more times faster without using their arms on top of that it could generate more power on a stationary bike Pat this happen in one week when I think about that it's really quite incredible all right but what about the women out there did they get those kind of benefits do as well will it actually help women in their fifties sixties and seventies get stronger too absolutely let's go straight to another study let the title on this one as well creatine supplementation improves muscular performance in older women published in the European journal of applied physiology thirty women age fifty to seventy one of course the good either creatine or placebo that's the way they do these things again a one week study the women on creatine increased their bench press by almost four pounds the increase their leg press by over eleven pounds and they had better balance and agility so fifty to seventy one year old women not.

Coming up next
