It's been called the "middle-age spread," and the middle-age blimp-out. What ever it's called, it's a physical reality for middle-age adults.
Medical researchers call this condition the somatopause (sa-mot-a-pause).
Its symptoms-weight-gain, energy decline, loss of muscle, bad cholesterol goes up, good cholesterol goes down, and the skin begins to wrinkle.
What Is Somatopause?
Most of the nation's 80 million baby-boomers are experiencing the somatopause, says Phil Campbell, the author of a new book on anti-MIDDLE-aging, health and fitness.
The somatopause is the "ultimate baby-boomer bummer," explains Campbell because millions are spent by middle-age adults on healthcare, medicine, plastic surgery, health food, and gym memberships attempting to reverse the impact of the somatopause.
"The somatopause has a cure and it's free," says Campbell, "and this is great news for all middle-age adults struggling with weight loss and lack of energy."
There is a specific type of exercise that makes the body release a particular hormone that reverses the somatopause. "And you don't have to spend all day in the gym," says Campbell, "exercise targeted at releasing this anti-middle-aging hormone actually doesn't take a lot of time."
The Two Proven Cures
"The somatopause has two cures proven in mainstream research," explains Campbell, "growth hormone injections that have serious implications and run $1000 a month, and anaerobic exercise-the short-burst, get-you-out-of-breath in 10 seconds, sprinting types of exercise."
Researchers show that the somatopause is related directly to the decline of growth hormone (a natural substance produced by the body) during aging. Campbell cites biomedical research showing that increasing growth hormone can produce an average response of a 14 percent loss in body fat and an 8 percent gain in muscle. Researchers also report improvements in skin, bone density, and cholesterol.
It's widely reported that several well-known actors take growth hormone injections for its anti-aging, youth rejuvenating properties. And growth hormone injections have been banned for athletes because of its ability to improve performance.
"Growth hormone is given to children with clinical stature growth problems to help them grow normally," says Campbell, "growth hormone therapy does not make adults grow taller, but it does reverse several measurable clinical factors of the somatopause."
In his book, "Ready, Set, Go! Synergy Fitness for Time-Crunched Adults," Campbell uses 160 biomedical research studies and 300 photo-illustrations to show readers that his Synergy Fitness program will help adults get the benefits of increasing growth hormone naturally-without injections.
Campbell offers five levels of Synergy Fitness programs-from beginners to pro-athletes. And the starting level takes a reasonable 3½ hours a week. There is a free chapter for review at the book's Website www.readysetgofitness.com and Campbell offers a free newsletter that tracks research on anti-middle-aging research.
