Peel apples and green tomatoes contain useful compounds that can prevent atrophy of muscle tissue, experts say. Tomation and ursolic acid needed by the muscles, these substances prevent the reduction of muscle mass, writes Science World Report.
Scientists conducted an experiment with laboratory rats. Older animals with muscle atrophy, the researchers gave with 0.27% ursolic acid or 0.05% cometidine. The rest of the diet remained the same. Animals were fed so two months.
According to specialists, biological additive increased muscle mass of rats on 10%. This improved the quality of muscle tissue.
Note, in another study, scientists from the University of Copenhagen found: muscle mass in the absence of physical activity is lost very quickly. And to repair it requires considerably more time.
