This is primarily due to a lethal combination of two things: high-calorie, high- carb diets which raise blood sugar; and sedentary lifestyles without muscular action to use that sugar, allowing it to build up in the blood.

Eating fewer carbs and moving around more is a good idea for everyone’s health. But you can get more benefit for the effort you put in by using osteogenic loading to hack your muscle development - and your metabolism.

The key lies in the impact of muscle tissue on our blood sugar levels. Muscle tissue eats up more calories than other types of tissue, even when it’s sitting around doing nothing.

In combination with an active lifestyle and a healthy diet, osteogenic loading adds significant improvements to your metabolic health.
