Active Tissue Mass (ATM) quality index is the most important bio-marker for healthy ageing because it measures the quality of your muscle rather than the amount. You can actually in some cases have a lot of muscle that is actually of poor quality!! So it is true, quality is more important than quantity.
Some factors that will lead to poor muscle quality are:
- Vegetarian diet
- Low protein intake
- Poor nutrition
- Poor detoxification
- High stress levels
- Inadequate sleep
- Too much or too little exercise
Ageing is something that is happening to every cell in your body. If you want to stay vibrant and healthy the most important cells are those ones producing energy – your muscles!
