Quality of life is a direct correlation to muscle health

At Daily Dose, we always believe in reaching for the kitchen cabinet before the medicine cabinet - which is why we’ve partnered with multiple thought leaders in the nutrition and wellness industry to offer a variety of meal programs that can fit anyone’s busy and active lifestyle. Protein Forward by Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is a plan to correct metabolism, promote fat loss, and benefit both muscle maintenance and muscle gain.

If your muscles are strong, you live better.

The quality of your life is a direct correlation to your muscle health.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again - muscle is the organ of longevity.

The primary function of muscle goes way beyond locomotion—it’s the foundation of metabolism and your body armor.

Skeletal muscle aids in regulating blood sugar and blood lipids. It’s an endocrine organ that secretes myokines, which are proteins that help regulate metabolism in all other tissues of the body. They also have an immune interface.

Muscle is your metabolic currency. The stronger and healthier your muscles, the more effective your body is at managing carbohydrates and fat.

Let’s shift the attention from muscle as it relates to performance and focus, to how it can be leveraged for health.

You want to build muscle to:

    • Maintain activities of a fulfilling life
    • Set the foundation for your metabolism to correct body composition
    • Prevent high blood sugar and high cholesterol
    • Decrease age-related cognitive impairment diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia
    • Increase your survivability in nearly all injuries and illnesses

In my Lyon Protocol you can download on my website, I lay out all the building blocks to begin your journey to right your potential metabolic wrongs, correct your body composition, take care of your inflammation and regain control of your blood sugar by designing your diet around a targeted amount of high quality protein. Prioritize your health. Doctor’s orders.
