These 2 common gym exercises reduce muscle mass

But this is just not true.
Believe it or not, these 2 insanely popular gym exercises are actually BAD for you.
Because they widen your waist, slow down muscle growth, and increase your risk of injury.
This Special Supplement Increases Muscle Mass Without Exercise
Muscle mass is a great source of health. Muscle tissue produces hormones that improve health and longevity.
But increasing muscle mass usually involves a lot of exercise.
Scientists were investigating a supplement to see its effects on blood sugar in people with prediabetes.
Surprisingly, they found the supplement significantly increased muscle mass.
The trial also showed that the supplement could be beneficial for lowering fasting blood sugar levels.
These researchers carried out human trials at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, France. The journal PLOS One published the results.
People with high fasting blood sugar levels or impaired glucose tolerance in a range not quite high enough to be diagnosed as diabetic fall into the category of prediabetes.
People identified as prediabetic are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
“Preventing or slowing the progression of prediabetes to diabetes is a major therapeutic issue.”
This research looked at the effect of a supplement on fasting blood sugar levels over four months in people with prediabetes.
All of the participants were overweight or obese – which greatly increases the likelihood that they will become diabetic.
“Our aim was to evaluate the effects of 4-month treatment with a dietary supplement in moderately obese or overweight pre-diabetic subjects.”
The supplement was a combination of three different substances.
- Cinnamon (the spice) – Each capsule contained 228 mg of cinnamon.
- Chromium (the mineral) – The capsules contained 1.25 mg of chromium guanylate, providing 10 μg of chromium chloride.
- Carnosine (amino acid) – The supplement contained 100 mg of L-carnosine.
Subjects of the study were selected because of their unwillingness to change their diet and lifestyle habits.
“62 subjects with a fasting blood glucose ranging from 5.55 to 7.0, unwilling to change their dietary and physical activity habits were selected.”
They gave the patients two capsules per day, whether taking the supplement or the placebo.
The capsules looked were identical and the patients took them during lunch.
After four months, people taking the supplement had slightly lower fasting blood sugar.
“Four months of treatment with the dietary supplement decreased fasting blood sugar compared to the placebo group.”
That difference wasn’t much – but fasting blood sugar increased in people taking the inactive placebo capsule.
So the supplement was reversing the damage.
Other metabolic markers such as insulin, lipids, and HbA1c were very similar in the two groups.
The surprising result in the study was an increase in fat-free mass in people taking the supplement.
This almost certainly means that they gained muscle.
Participants taking the supplements seemed to gain an average of 1.2 kg of muscle.
“Fat-free mass increased with the dietary supplement compared to placebo.”
People taking the placebo pill lost a little fat-free mass on average.
The supplement was more effective in people with higher fasting blood sugar but lower inflammation at the start of the trial.
Adding some ginger to decrease inflammation might have made the results even better.
“Subjects with a higher fasting blood sugar levels and milder inflammatory state at baseline benefited most from the dietary supplement.”
The study showed that cinnamon, chromium, and carnosine can increase muscle mass and decrease fasting blood sugar in overweight or obese people…
…without exercise or diet changes.
“Four-month treatment with a dietary supplement containing cinnamon, chromium, and carnosine decreased fasting blood sugar and increased fat-free mass in overweight or obese pre-diabetic subjects.”
The researchers found another study in the literature showing an increase in muscle mass from one of the supplements.
That study used 500 mg of cinnamon per day (similar to the amount in the study we’re discussing here).
And they recorded a similar increase in muscle mass.
“A 12-week treatment with cinnamon (500 mg/day) improved body composition – increasing lean mass by 1.4 kg.”
You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about treating and diagnosing health-related problems.
I discovered a simple but weird little practice I do at home to boost my metabolism
When I want more potency and vigor, I do this weird little practice at home and I’m raring to go.
It works because it raises my temperatures and literally makes my metabolism the same as when I was a young man of 20.
Right now I’m doing it. My temperature is at 98.8 – and I’m raring to go.
And you can do the same in your life.
In fact, if you don’t, you will find that you deflate as a man and everything is tougher, slower, lower, and colder.
But with my weird little practice, you are always ready, always hot to trot.
And it’s wonderful for a man’s overall health and longevity too.
