Muscle mass is important. We all know that. We have been taught this since we were young. We were taught in school that our muscles help us stand upright, walk, run, lift, and do a number of other amazing feats.
You also use your muscles for vital processes such as breathing, your heart beating, and digestion.
Did you know that your muscles can have an impact on your overall quality of life?
It has been found that your muscle mass can drastically impact your quality of life and longevity. This is linked to many aspects of movement, but also to your metabolism.
Reduced muscle mass can lead to fatigue and weakness.
This is particularly an issue when you consider that a reduced amount of muscle means that there is a reduction in your body’s ability to produce ATP which energy stored in our muscles. The ATP is the essential form of energy for cells to conduct their necessary functions (Koopman et al. 2014).
How does muscle mass impact longevity?
According to the article, “A metabolic link to skeletal muscle wasting and regeneration”, there is a link between muscle mass and stem cell reproduction (Koopman et al.). This link shows that a reduction in overall muscle mass can also impact the stem cells present and their ability to regenerate.
This regenerative process is vital in the healing process from disease and injury. Without the ability for our cells to regenerate, our chances to live a long life are cut short. Studies show that using strength training will benefit longevity.
