Muscle Support

Our bodies house about 700 different muscles that make up half of our total body weight. Each of these is made up of connective tissue, blood vessels, tendons and nerves. Muscles are necessary to support and move our skeletal system, and make up the heart and digestive organ tissue as well. Each of the three types of muscle tissue, visceral tissue, cardiac muscle tissue and skeletal muscle tissue all require proper care and nutrition for optimal performance.

Muscle Types

Three types of muscle tissue exist: Visceral, Cardiac, and Skeletal.

Visceral Muscle - Visceral muscle tissue is the weakest of all muscle tissue and can be found in organs. It is also known as “smooth muscle” tissue because it is very smooth and uniform in appearance. This type of muscle, found in the stomach, blood vessels, and intestines moves involuntarily without conscious thought and is needed to filter substances through the organ.

Cardiac Muscle - This muscle for the heart pumps blood throughout the body. Because it cannot be consciously controlled, it too is considered an involuntary muscle. While the brain sends signals and hormones to the heart about rates of contraction, it is the cardiac muscle itself that stimulates itself to contract.

Skeletal Muscle - This is the only muscle in the body that is controlled voluntarily. Every conscious physical action we take requires skeletal muscle. This includes, walking, talking, eating, writing, etc. Skeletal muscle is needed to move parts of the body closer or further away to perform tasks and activities.

Good nutrition and muscle support supplements are key to maintaining a healthy muscular system.
