The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty.

The Truth About Whey Protein And Your Nasty Belly Fat

A simple way to keep your muscles strong as you get older (and it isn't exercise) 
This one step can strengthen aging muscles, boost your immune system, and even help you manage your weight.
It’s normal for our muscles to lose tone and become a bit flabby as we age. But just because it’s normal, it doesn’t mean it’s good.

Not only are flabby muscles unsightly, they’re also a sign that we’re losing muscle mass and strength.

Losing muscle mass makes it harder to do the things you take for granted. Like walking up stairs. Lifting a bag of groceries. Or recovering your balance instead of falling.

Losing strength also makes you more prone to injuries that can keep you from enjoying the activities you've loved for years. It's a major reason people lose mobility and end up in nursing homes.

We all want to stay strong and vital for as long as possible. So many of us turn to exercise. While a regular exercise program can help, it’s often not enough. We need to feed our muscles, too. What…
