Supporting Lean Body Mass in Youth and Aging
Mitochondrial function is front and center regarding athletic and muscular performance. It is also well documented that there is a close interplay between physical fitness and exertion and immune function and dysfunction. The balancing act of living a healthy and vital life while tending to mitochondrial nutrition and performance is paramount.
Our discussion will include signs that other tissues and organs may be pointing towards a weakened-susceptible mitochondrial status in the body. Both NAD+ and ATP levels diminish significantly with biological aging raising the clinical question of the central role of both molecules in accelerated aging.
- Addressing saboteurs to optimal mitochondrial function
- Current Research on the role of NAD and mitochondrial support for muscular performance
- Aging and the critical role of sustained muscle strength for longevity
- Consequences of over-training relative to mitochondrial deficits
