Apigenin Increases Muscle Mass And Improves Muscle Function In Both Young And Old Mice

In an earlier video, I presented data for apigenin’s ability to increase levels of NAD+. In addition to apigenin’s impact on NAD+, apigenin supplementation increases muscle mass, strength, and treadmill running distance in both young and old mice.

Video link for NAD+ is increased in response to apigenin: https://youtu.be/5-2YoGctcCk?list=UUT…

Quantifying Biological Age With Aging.ai: 24 Blood Tests Since 2009

The maximal reduction for biological age when using the biological age calculator, Phenotypic Age, is ~20 years. In other words, if I’m 80 years old and my biomarkers are all reflective of youth, the lowest possible biological age will be ~60 years old. One reason for that is the inclusion […]
