In this weeks episode Lisa interviews Dr Emily Werner nutritionist to the Philadelphia NBA Basketball team and consultant for Timeline Nutrition who produced Mitopure which contains a super excited molecule that you need to know about if you are into anti-aging
One of the hallmarks of aging and at the base of much disease is the dysfunction of mitochondria, the little powerhouses in our cells that literally produce the energy we need to live. As we age or after stresses like viruses, too much exercise, toxins etc we get more dysfunctioning mitochondria and this leads to fatigue, and the breaking down of our health on a cellular level that affects everything we do.
Urolithin A (UA) is a little-known nutrient that is starting to garner a lot of well-deserved attention. Numerous studies are being released demonstrating its powerful effect on muscle health and longevity. UA's benefit to health is due to its ability to stimulate mitophagy, the process by which older, dysfunctional mitochondria get recycled into more efficient, healthier mitochondria.
Urolithin A is not found directly in the food we eat. It is a postbiotic, meaning that the bacteria in our gut convert plant compounds (called polyphenols) into UA. Regularly eating foods high in these specific polyphenols supplies your microbiome with the precursors it needs to generate UA.
In this interview you will learn
What is Urolithin A
How is produced naturally in the body
What super foods contain this molecule
Why only 30% of people can actually make this postbiotic in their microbiomes
What dosage is required to effect mitophagy
What mitophagy is and why is it important
The role of mitochondrial health in longevity
The clinical research going into the effects of this molecule - human and animal trials
