Muscle Mass Specialist Q&A

What is a muscle mass specialist?

A muscle mass specialist is a medical professional who specializes in helping you increase and maintain muscle. 

There are health, wellness, and confidence-related benefits to maintaining a healthy amount of muscle, and the team at RxBODYFx can help you find innovative ways to build muscle mass. 

RxBODYFx offers multiple treatments and services that help you maintain muscle, even as you age.

What causes a loss of muscle mass?

There are a few reasons why you might not have as much muscle mass as you did in the past. In fact, you might find it difficult to build muscle mass altogether. 

Testosterone loss, or low testosterone, is a relatively common occurrence for aging men. Muscle mass reduction is one of the major signs because the hormone testosterone plays a significant role in muscle building and strength. Other possible causes of your loss in muscle mass include:

  • Nutrient deficiency
  • Natural aging
  • Lack of exercise
  • Chronic disease
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Malabsorption

Your loss of muscle mass might be accompanied by other signs and symptoms like fatigue, weakness, unexplained weight loss, and gastrointestinal issues. 

What are the benefits of visiting a muscle mass specialist?

It might not seem that important, but building muscle mass can benefit both your mental and physical health. By visiting a muscle mass specialist at RxBODYFx, you can find answers for why you’re struggling to build muscle and get back on track to experience those benefits. 

More muscle mass means:

  • A faster metabolism
  • Better blood sugar management
  • Less body fat
  • Better bone and joint health
  • Better athletic performance and recovery

The team at RxBODYFx gives you personalized care and visits with you regularly to make sure you’re seeing results. 

How can I build and maintain muscle mass?

The best way to build muscle mass is to put your muscles to work with exercise. However, if aging or any condition is affecting your ability to gain muscle, there are treatments and services available to improve your muscle-building abilities. RxBODYFx offers several of them, including:

  • IV vitamin therapy
  • Vitamin injections
  • Anti-aging therapy with peptides
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Nutrition coaching
  • Hormone therapy

You can access services like these individually or as part of a comprehensive weight management plan. During your free initial consultation, the team assesses your goals and finds the best way for you to work toward them.
