Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) December 05, 2012 -- According to the CDC, "Each year, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls." However, the CDC goes on to say that, less than half talk to their healthcare providers about it.
A paper published in the journal, "The Gerontologist," , goes further and states that among older adults (those 65 or older), falls are the leading cause of injury death. They are also the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma.
polyDNA points out that in 2010, 2.3 million nonfatal fall injuries among older adults were treated in emergency departments and more than 662,000 of these patients were hospitalized.
It does not have to be this way. It's well known that aging causes a decrease in muscle mass. A loss in muscle mass can effect balance which in turn can lead to falls. Muscle weakness in these cases is the enemy.
There is actually much that children of elderly parents can do to help prevent their aging parents from falling. Nevertheless, even with precautions like removing clutter from the floors of the home, and putting railing along the sides of the walls, accidents still happen.
Again, polyDNA would like to call attention to the fact that the cause of these accidents is muscle weakness.
As mentioned above, advanced age can be a cause of muscle weakness all by itself. Yet, there are sometimes other factors at work such as metabolic disorders, or side effects of certain medications.
In fact, in today's society, many elderly parents are on many different medications...and those medications often have side effects. Moreover, many elderly parents suffer from conditions like Osteoarthritis, which can also be a cause of muscle weakness.
Thus, in order to prevent falls, the number one recommendation of doctors is to increase muscle strength.
No child of an elderly parent wants to see their parent fall and hurt themselves due to muscle weakness!
Science shows that the elderly fall more often since they have less muscle mass, and as a result, less balance. To reduce the risk of falling, doctors recommend increasing muscle strength.
But, how does one get one's parent to increase physical strength other than to increase muscle activity?
Loss of physical strength can make it much harder for older people to do normal, everyday activities such as getting out of bed, walking the dog, walking to the supermarket, climbing stairs, and more.
Thus, many people with elderly parents may wonder if there are remedies that improve physical strength or that reduce muscle weakness.
Some doctors may prescribe physical therapy. Others may suggest anabolic steroids.
However, you can also ask your doctor about Muxscle, an all natural, yet scientifically designed supplement that improves physical strength while reducing muscle weakness.
Specifically, Muxscle helps prevent muscle aches and pains, improving overall physical strength while actively reducing muscle weakness.
Muxscle is totally safe. Although it has just entered the market, during testing, no side effects were reported. A capsule of Muxscle includes 100 mg of quercetin, 150 mg of a green tea extract, 50 mg of a cinnamon extract, 25 mg of a licorice extract, and 100 mcg of selenium. The Muxscle formula is patent protected. In addition, each bottle is GMP Certified and can be bought from the Muxscle website for just $39.95.

If you have a hard time fully understanding the science in reports on our website, ask your doctor to explain it to you. There is a good possibility that he (or she) already knows about it. Otherwise, we are sure that your doctor will be grateful that you brought Muxscle to his or her attention.
We suggest you take a copy of the clinical study to show to your elderly parent's doctor.
