(NewsUSA) - Did you know age-related muscle loss starts when you turn 30? Whether we like it or not, muscle starts to deteriorate with age. This age-related muscle loss is known as sarcopenia. Sarcopenia springs from many factors, including inactivity, inadequate protein intake and increased levels of the regulatory protein myostatin, which regulates muscle growth. Clinical studies have shown that high levels of myostatin can lead to reduced muscle mass.
Sarcopenia impacts overall health as well. Age-related muscle loss can limit the ability to perform everyday activities and increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and obesity as well as cardiovascular, neurological and orthopedic diseases.
However, there are steps to take to help mitigate the effects of sarcopenia.
Moderate physical activity, plus resistance training, may help promote muscle growth and reduce the impact of sarcopenia.
Adequate protein intake is an important part of a healthy diet, especially with age, to help maintain muscle health.
Rē Muscle Health products feature the revolutionary bionutritional supplement Fortetropin, described on MYOS Corporation's website as "the only safe and naturally occurring myostatin inhibitor available with clinically demonstrated positive effect on both muscle thickness and lean body mass compared to placebo."
MYOS' Rē Muscle Health nutrition products are formulated to help protect and preserve lean, healthy muscle tissue. The product line includes bars, powders and meal-replacement shakes designed to be used daily to supplement a sensible workout regimen, or simply as part of a regular, healthy diet to help promote muscle health and lean body mass. The products contain a 6.6 gram full serving of Fortetropin along with 20 grams of protein.
In clinical trials, Fortetropin, the active ingredient in Rē Muscle Health products, was associated with a reduction in myostatin levels, as well as an increase in lean body mass and muscle thickness.
Dr. Buzz Aldrin, astronaut and member of the company's board of directors, uses the products daily.
"I am pleased that Rē Muscle Health is tailored to the aging population as well as athletes and the fitness community," noted Dr. Aldrin, a former intercollegiate athlete and pole vaulter, in a company press release. "MYOS is doing important, groundbreaking work in muscle health, and I rely on Rē Muscle Health products to help me maintain my lean muscle. They taste great and I've seen tremendous results," Dr. Aldrin said.

(NewsUSA) - Summertime means outdoor barbecues, baseball games and time at the beach or pool. Outdoor activities are plentiful and often, but for the 9 million smokeless tobacco users, they can present a conundrum.
One of the problems for smokeless tobacco users is the unsightly, telltale "spit cup." For one, it can make others uneasy seeing a clear bottle sitting in a car, by the beach chair or on the deck in the backyard, never mind prompting uncomfortable conversation. Carrying a large chew-ing tobacco spittoon doesn't seem like a viable option either, nor does using a dip cup, which could spill and make a mess that can be challenging to clean up, depending on where the spill occurs.
So, what's a smokeless tobacco user to do this summer?
According to Everett Dickson, CEO of FLASR, an Atlanta-based tobacco accessory producer (OTCQB: FLSR), this scenario is just one of the many reasons his company created the portable spittoon.
"The small size of the FLASR portable tobacco flask allows users to enjoy smokeless tobacco unobtrusively in public without unwanted attention," said Dickson. "Whether you are fishing, at-tending an outdoor sporting event, heading to your company's picnic or enjoying a ballgame, FLASR is great for a variety of summer activities."
According to its website, the company's new 4-ounce pocket spittoon is designed to allow users to open and shut it with just one hand, making it an ideal solution to take anywhere while providing the user with "an elegant and easy-to-use solution for taking your favorite tobacco products along wherever your travels lead you."
For those who work or play outside more than they're in, the FLASR -- the original tobacco flask -- has an advanced closing mechanism, ensuring that it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of spills and leaks often seen with cups and bottles.
The company plans on designing variations of the product to give consumers a greater choice of design options, including but not limited to, brands of sports teams, hobbies, interests, and more. FLASR is available in 400 stores across 10 states, as well as online.

SILVER CITY, N.M. — A special section of bull riding will kick start the Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo at 8 tonight.
The event will include many of the top bull riders in the game matched against some of the top bulls from stock contractor Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo. The match-ups are set by random draw, and there are some interesting combinations for the four days of rodeo action.
Tim Bingham, a 2014 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier from Honeyville, Utah, will test his talents on Footloose, another NFR athlete. Other match-ups for tonight are Brant Atwood-Rattler, Guthrie Murray-Rio Bravo, Cody Dollins-Morning After and Jacob Marcell-Missing Parts.
The top bulls also will buck throughout the weekend. That means several NFR animals will be matched with other top bull riders as the rodeo continues through Saturday: Cody Teel-Morning After and Elliot Jacoby-Mind Games.
