Older man muscle
Researchers have published a potential new method of treating the age-related muscle loss known as sarcopenia in Aging Cell. A return to NAD+ Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD): Benefits and ResearchNicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is a dinucleotide, which means that it consists of two nucleotides joined through...
Muscle fibers
With an in-depth examination tool in hand, researchers publishing in Aging have done a preliminary examination of the muscle protein differences between younger and older people and how older people's proteins change with exercise. The power to take a close look This paper begins with a discussion of proteomics, the science of analyzing what proteins...
Buff old man
A study published in Aging Cell has reported that older people with better regulated autophagy in their skeletal muscles have less age-related frailty. Taking out the trash What is Autophagy?Autophagy, derived from ancient Greek, means "eating of self". Autophagy is the way cells break down misbehaving or nonfunctional organelles and proteins in the cell. This...
Rejuvenate Biomed
Rejuvenate Biomed has recently concluded a clinical trial for sarcopenia. The results have shown “meaningful improvements in muscle strength, function and fatigue resistance”. What is sarcopenia? Sarcopenia is an age-related progressive loss of muscle mass and strength that affects many older adults. This decline in muscle mass and strength can greatly impact quality of life...
Intestine
In Aging, a team of researchers has outlined a possible relationship between low grip strength and compounds in the gut microbiome. The gut-muscle axis As these researchers note, previous work has described many of the various ways in which metabolism is related to age-related muscle dysfunction, including inflammation, oxidative stress, accumulation of advanced glycation end-products...
Wheelchair exercise
Today in GeroScience, researchers have published an analysis of a cohort study, concluding that adherence to physical activity recommendations can mitigate the increased mortality associated with disability. Simply being able to live In this paper, disability refers to impediments to the basic activities of daily living (ADLs), such as moving, dressing, showering, and eating. Disability...
