Scientists Improve Muscle Development in Zebrafish with Neuromuscular Disease
When given before muscle development, NAD+ or B3 vitamins supplementation can improve muscular health in zebrafish.
Small Molecule Enhancing NAD+ Levels Rejuvenates Muscles
A small molecule inhibitor of an enzyme called NNMT improved aged mice's muscle quality and function. In the future, the drug might help the elders feel fitter and stronger.
Consuming Whey Protein Can Improve Elders’ Muscle Performance
Scientists from Brazil studying aging conducted a review of scientific literature on whey protein consumption in elderly individuals, indicating whey protein improves muscle function.
NMN as Potential Therapeutic Agent for Muscle Disease
Scientists from the University of Missouri report disruptions of the NAD+ biosynthesis pathway in mice facilitating malformed mitochondria and cell structure in muscle. Furthermore, nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) administration at least partially restores these cellular defects.
Functional and Traditional Training: Improved Strength in Aging Women
A study reported functional training and traditional training exercise routines improved strength and agility in aging women when compared to stretching alone.
