Weak Muscles

Weak Muscles

In 2009 I noticed that my muscles were getting very weak. I used to be stronger than alot of men. I was very proud of that. Now it takes everything in me just to get a drink. Dose anyone else have this problem? It's like I don't have any muscles anymore.

The collagen stuff is easily digestable protein and amino acids, critical for muscles. It's been the easiest way for me to get that nutrition. 9g of protein in two spoon fulls. It tastes like nothing, it dissolves in hot or cold liquid. I make my coffee healthy every morning with it Lela

Yes, I too was as strong as a man, but since I got fibromyaliga the other health problems started also. As I get older I have gotten weaker. I can lift things but I am limited to around 10 lbs, and that's not above my head.

Me too! Same story. Can't lift 5lbs without paying for it. I am making smoothies with protein powder.

You need protein. Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen has been a daily addition and the muscle loss has stopped but I'm definitely weaker than I used to be

So true. My muscles get very tired but yet I can't sleep at night for some reason. I used to be a strong person as well. Not anymore!
