And zone-2 training is supposed to increase mitochondria density, size and functionality. I wonder what the best protocol that combines exercise and diet is for mitochondrial function!
On a similar note, metformin is also supposed to be a “weak mitochondrial poison”. Does it benefit the mitochondria in any way due to hormesis? Or is its benefit essentially via keeping blood glucose levels low?
Sorry, I’ve taken this post on many tangents now.
But it’s great to hear about urolithin-A. I’ll keep my eye out for more on this supplement!
Urolithins will also be eventually produced after the intake of all ellagitannin-containing foods and medicinal plants as is the case of camu camu (Myrciaria dubia ), arctic bramble, rose hip, sea buckthorn, cranberry, Geranium , and oak-aged spirits (whisky, etc.).
