Muscle mass and heart disease

Recommended Posts

And for those who do not read the paper, the relationship is an inverse one (and significant) - so get lifting people!!

Yes, the study suggests a significant association between myopenia and CV disease. Best way to avoid myopenia is by stimulation of the mechanogrowth factor (a form of local IGF-1) by weightlifting (and ingestion of enough nutrients).

urolithin A is a supplement that appears to be beneficial for cell mitochondria by slowing muscle deterioration with age. Urolithin a is natura substance found in berries and wine.

Findings  In this randomized clinical trial of 66 older adults, those who received supplementation with 1000 mg of urolithin A had a significant improvement in muscle endurance (number of muscle contractions until fatigue) for both hand and leg skeletal muscles compared with those who used placebo. Plasma levels of several acylcarnitines, ceramides (biomarkers of mitochondrial health), and C-reactive protein were decreased after urolithin A supplementation.
