Anti-Aging: Reversal of Muscle, Bone and Cartilage Loss with OrthoRejuv™ Fortified Miracle Protein
Physicians at Bella Milagros along with anti-aging researchers around the world continue to conduct clinical studies on sarcopenia, osteoporosis, and athlete joint degradation. We have formulated OrthoRejuv, our proprietary blend of bone and joint health supplements. Our proprietary OrthoRejuv fortified Miracle Protein products are formulated to stop and reverse orthopedic degradation due to aging and extreme athletics. In addition to our original Miracle Protein, we are now offering our Miracle Protein fortified with OrthoRejuv instead of manufacturing OrthoRejuv capsule supplements.
Muscle mass loss (sarcopenia) due to normal and abnormal aging processes. Our current studies reveal that muscle mass loss begins at age 50. Muscle mass loss is a natural process that may become severe leading to functional impairment, disability, falls, frailty, and the loss of independence. Accelerated muscle mass loss is caused by increased visceral (belly) fat mass, inflammatory enzymes released by visceral fat cells, poor protein intake, and a sedentary lifestyle.
Muscle mass loss can be reversed and stopped if weight bearing exercises and a high protein diet rich in branched chain amino acids, B vitamins, calcium, and fiber is consumed daily. Physicians recommend a daily minimum of 85 grams of protein of which 40 grams should be branched chain amino acids (especially: leucine - Miracle Protein contains 4089 mg per pouch!!). Studies reveal that increased muscle mass and strength decreases all-cause mortality and mortality from cancer and chronic diseases.
Findings of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT) conclude, "combination glucosamine and chondroitin is effective in treating moderate to severe knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA).(1)"
The results from this groundbreaking multi-center trial were presented in its entirety at the 2005 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and gives hope to the 35 million Americans who suffer from osteoarthritis. GAIT tested whether glucosamine and chondroitin used separately or in combination, and in comparison to placebo and prescription celecoxib, are effective in reducing pain and improving functional ability in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Jason Theodosakis, M.D., a member of the steering committee for the $14 million NIH study, concludes: "The supplements glucosamine and chondroitin offer effective treatment to the millions of Americans who suffer from osteoarthritis. One very significant finding of GAIT is that the supplements actually outperformed the prescription drug for those with moderate to severe knee pain thus offering relief for those who need it most."
