IDEAL FOR DIABETICS AND THE ELDERLY. STRENGTHENS MUSCLES AND RENEWS CELLS IN JUST 2 MONTHS. VARIETY OF 300G GREEN TOMATOES. Eating apple peels and green tomatoes may help reduce muscle aging and decay during elderly years, a group of researchers from the University of Iowa reported. The researchers said that older adults who consume apple peels and green tomatoes for at least two months can experience the benefit, which can be attributed to the chemicals ursolic acid and tomatidine that are present in apple peel and green tomatoes respectively.

Gene alteration caused by a protein known as ATF4 is responsible for muscle wastage in the elderly but researchers said that ursolic acid and tomatidine can significantly reduce the activity of this protein, which in turn reduces muscle decay and aging. The chemicals can prevent muscle loss as they deactivate genes that the ATF4 often activates. In a study involving mice, researchers looked at the effects of the two chemicals on muscles. By giving elderly mice with age atrophy and muscle weakness diets that either contain or did not contain 0.27 percent ursolic acid, or 0.05 percent tomatidine for a period of two months, they found that the chemicals significantly reduced age-related muscle weakness.

The researchers also found that after two months, the quality of the mice's muscles increased by 30 percent and the muscle mass increased by 10 percent. "Based on these results, ursolic acid and tomatidine appear to have a lot of potential as tools for dealing with muscle weakness and atrophy during aging," said study researcher Christopher Adams, internal medicine professor at the University of Iowa. "By reducing ATF4 activity, ursolic acid and tomatidine allow skeletal muscle to recover from the effects of aging."
