One of them is trustworthy apple with skin contains natural compounds that can increase the amount of muscle and brown fat and burn calories.
Researchers suspect the apple skin contains ursolik acid that can change hormone levels that are involved in metabolism, including insulin, which can help boost muscle mass to adults.
However, more research is needed to recommend an apple a day to maintain muscle strength.
“Our main target is to learn the benefits ursolik acid in humans, especially to help our patients who experience skeletal muscle atrophy, obesity, diabetes and fatty liver disease,” said researcher Christopher M. Adams, M.D., Ph.D. from the University of Iowa.
Meanwhile, Minh-Hai Tran, MS, RD, CSSD, a sports dietitian of Mindful Nutrition in Seattle recommend you to try 3 of food as reported from menshealth, below.
