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.
