12 Anti-Aging actions you can take that help you live a better life
HOW TO BEAT AGING AS AN ADULT, WHETHER YOU ARE 35 OR 85, STARTING TODAY BASED ON THE SCIENCE BEHIND ENCOUR
1. Keep moving to avoid falls
Staying active and strong is important for independent living. By helping energize muscles and tissues, Encour helps improve your functional capacity for movement, which may help reduce falls.
2. Engage your mind
Encour helps you have better focus, memory and recall while aging normally. Along with challenging your mind, taking Encour daily can help you stay sharp.
3. Energize your brain
Creatine is part of every brain cell. Its function is to provide power to mitochondria, which is critical to this vital organ. Encour helps improve brain energy availability and cognitive function, while aging normally.
4. Stay strong even on a plant-based diet
We all are considering the new alternatives to traditional products like milk and meat. But plant-based products lack an essential amino-acid-like substance called creatine. Encour provides creatine directly to help improve strength, endurance and cognitive function for vegetarians and vegans compared to omnivores.
5. Keep your bones healthy
The key ingredient in Encour that impacts bones is creatine. Early indications are that it may help maintain healthy bones by powering the normal function of bone cells as we age.
6. Walk longer and stronger
Being able to stand and move freely is important as we age. Encour is proven to help build and maintain muscles. Enhanced muscle strength in your core, arms, and legs is important in balance and stability for standing and walking.
7. Fight cholesterol
Diet is usually where we start to address cholesterol and triglycerides. Some studies suggest creatine may help maintain cholesterol and triglyceride levels already with the normal range.
8. Normalize blood sugar
For some people, issues with blood sugar and insulin levels arise with age. Limit your intact of sugar and follow your doctor's advice is the best place to start. Research suggests Encour may help you maintain your blood sugar levels within the normal range.
9. Recover better
Ever feel tired or worn out after a day of physical activities like a round of golf or even just going for a long walk? Encour helps you recover faster from daily physical activities. So you can be ready to seize the day.
10. Recovery after tougher challenges
Encour enhances recovery after strenuous exercise or intense work. When you really push yourself, Encour helps you bounce back fast. It's all about getting the cells replenished and restored by providing energy in the form of creatine.
11. Strength, power, endurance
These three go hand in hand. Encour has been proven, when used by professional athletes or aging adults, to effectively increase strength, power and endurance with exercise or activity. Why feel weak? Be strong with Encour.
12. More muscle, less fat
You need both muscle and fat in your body. But the ratio of muscle to body fat is a measure of relative fitness. Encour helps increase and maintain muscle mass. Muscle is the hardest to hold on to when we age. Fat? For most, it's a fight to keep it off after we reach adulthood.
Encour provides the best solution for adults who don't want to swallow a handful of pills, capsules and tablets every day.

Dr. Kreider has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences internationally and serves as a scientific expert consultant for industry and national professional organizations.
Darren Candow, Ph.D.
Dr. Candow, CSEP-Clinical Exercise Physiologist, is the Director of the Aging Muscle and Bone Health Laboratory and Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology & Health Studies, University of Regina, Canada. Dr. Candow's externally funded research program focuses on nutritional interventions (primarily creatine) and exercise training strategies for improving aging muscle and bone health.
Kristen Drescher, Ph.D.
Dr. Drescher received her Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology from Johns Hopkins University and completed her post-doctoral training in Neuroimmunology at the Mayo Clinic/Foundation in Rochester, MN. Dr. Drescher is a Professor at Creighton University in Omaha, NE
Stacey Ellery, Ph.D.
Dr. Ellery is a NHMRC Peter Doherty Early Career Research Fellow, with a primary interest in utero-placental and fetal energy homeostasis during pregnancy. She completed her Ph.D. at The Ritchie Centre, Monash University, Australia, in February of 2015. The focus of her Ph.D. studies was an investigation of the adverse outcomes of intrapartum asphyxia on renal function, together with an evaluation of prenatal [maternal] administration of creatine to protect the fetal/neonatal kidney.
Bruno Gualano, Ph.D.
Dr. Gualano is an Associate Professor at University of Sao Paulo (Brazil). He is Head of the Applied Physiology & Nutrition Research Group and Laboratory of Assessment and Conditioning in Rheumatology. His research focus is on the role of physical exercise, sedentary behavior and nutrition strategies in sports and in the management of chronic diseases, including rheumatic diseases, obesity, and Type 2 diabetes.
Sergej M. Ostojic, MD, Ph.D
Dr. Ostojic is Professor of Medicine at the University of Novi Sad, head of Applied Bioenergetics Lab, and adjunct professor at the University of Belgrade School of Medicine. His current research follows two main themes: studying mitochondrial viability and targeted interventions to tackle impaired bioenergetics in health and disease, and analyzing population health metrics in chronic cardiometabolic and neurodegenerative diseases.
Eric Rawson, Ph.D.
Dr. Rawson is Chair and Professor of Health, Nutrition, and Exercise Science at Messiah University in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Dr. Rawson received his Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Over the past two decades, Dr. Rawson’s research has focused on the interactions between nutrition and skeletal muscle. In particular, Dr. Rawson has studied the effects of the dietary supplement creatine on muscle and brain function.
Abbie E. Smith-Ryan, Ph.D.
Dr. Smith-Ryan, Ph.D., CSCS*D, FNSCA, FACSM, FISSN is an Associate professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science, where she serves as the Director of the Applied Physiology Lab.
