Activ Vite is rich in Collagen Hydrolysate and Calcium, the vital ingredients for the formation of healhty bones and protein for maintaining muscle mass, it also contains magnesium and Vitamin C, essential for the continued maintenance of strong bones and teeth.
Bone is made up of two major ingredients: Calcium Phosphate, which gives bone its strength and Collagen, which gives bone its flexibility.
The proportion of these two ingredients is maintained at a constant level to ensure that the bone structure is strong enough to support us. If insufficient Calcium Phosphate is present, bones degenerate and become weak. If insufficient Collagen is present, bones become brittle and break very easily.
The entire process of maintaining healthy bone is subject to hormonal control. Hence, as many women reach the menopause the hormonal control of bone maintenance is disturbed and in many cases formation can no longer keep up with the breakdown of the bone, resulting in brittle bones and an increased number of fractures.
Another consequence of ageing is Sarcopenia - defined as age related loss of muscle mass and muscle performance. With a sedentary lifestyle, researchers estimate the loss of muscle mass to be:
– Up to 8% per decade in the age range of 40-70 years
– Up to 15% muscle loss per decade after the age of 70
Delay and counteract the onset of Sarcopenia & Osteoporosis:
Scientists and health professionals often recommend a combination of physical exercise and nutritional supplements to delay and counteract the onset of sarcopenia & Osteoporosis. Protein consumption is one of the most crucial nutritional factors for maintaining muscle mass and muscle function while aging, particularly when protein is consumed after moderate, age appropriate exercise.
