Maintaining Strength and Flexibility

Musculoskeletal fitness has been associated with increased mobility, balance, and functionality. Lack of exercise, improper or extensive exercising leading to overuse injury, smoking, and excessive alcohol use, aging, lack of a good nutrition leading to a nutritional deficiencies, contribute to declining bone and muscle mass.

• 1 in 2 U.S. adults report muscle discomfort or motion limitations in the neck, back, or joints.
• Nearly 1 in 2 Americans aged 50+ may benefit from bone density support. 

• 9 out of 10 women in the U.S. may not be getting enough calcium. 

• Almost 3 out of 4 U.S. adolescents and adults may have insufficient levels of vitamin D. 

• Almost 7 in 10 Americans may be consuming inadequate amounts of magnesium.

The Role of Nutrition in Maintaining Musculoskeletal Fitness

Bone maintenance (known as “remodeling”) and density rely heavily on key vitamins and minerals—such as calcium, vitamin D, and magnesium—that may be missing in adequate amounts in many modern diets. And joint health can benefit from omega-3s and other modern nutrients that support cartilage integrity. Protein, minerals, and select herbals can beneficially influence muscle growth, contraction, and relaxation—as well as promote exercise recovery.

Targeted Nutritional Support for Musculoskeletal Health

Conventional approaches to support musculoskeletal integrity or relieve associated discomforts may carry increased risk of serious adverse events with prolong use. Dr. Sherman recommends a science-based formulas to promote musculoskeletal health, including support for healthy bone mineralization and remodeling, as well as support for connective tissue health as well as minor muscle and tissues aches.
