Louise Burke: Sports nutritionist
As we grow older, frailty becomes an issue due to declining muscle strength. For athletes, muscle fatigue can be a huge challenge at any age, but there is scientific evidence that nutritional interventions can slow down or reverse the process.
The LLAMA podcast has previously covered the science behind muscular health and the potential benefits of Mitopure, a pure form of the metabolite compound Urolithin A. According to clinical studies, it boosts cellular function and improves leg muscle strength in people over the age of 40.
In this episode we explore the latest science. Professor Louise Burke, the Chair of Sports Nutrition at the Institute for Health Research, Exercise and Nutrition Research Program, at the Australian Catholic University, is conducting a study with top athletes to evaluate the clinical evidence for Mitopure in a younger and more athletic populations. Will it help improve performance and what are the implications for non-athletes who want to maximize their muscular strength, as part of a healthy aging lifestyle?
