Mitochondria provide our cells with the energy they need to function, and they become increasingly dysfunctional as we age. A new study suggests that mitochondrial rejuvenation in the context of restoring healthy blood flow and neurovascular health might be possible with the popular supplement NMN. Rejuvenation of aged mitochondria The mitochondria are the power stations...

NAD+ and mitochondria The mitochondria are the power stations of the cell and provide the energy that...
