It will, in effect, starve to death in its own detritus.

Our muscles start to get weaker and our bodies, if they don’t receive enough calcium, can become brittle. This makes it easier for them to break for no reason at all. When we strength-train, even with a couple of dumbbells, this is helping to re-gain the muscle mass that we have lost. Take it back and you will always feel strong!
