Muscle for Mental Health


Age-related decline, be it mental or physical, is a brutal fact of life, the price you pay for taking so many trips around the sun. An exhaustive research review, the findings of which were published in the journal Current Osteoporosis Reports , recently established a connection between maintaining muscle mass and strength into your twilight years and staving off
mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. Scientists hypothesize that muscle mass and brain function must share some common pathophysiological pathways, and that robust skeletal muscle somehow nourishes the growth and health of neurons in the brain. Don’t view your trips to the weight room as part of young man’s lifestyle or something you’ll outgrow. This is just one more stone of a mountain of evidence to show that muscle is the key driver in vibrant longevity.
