๐ŸŽฏ Muscles help maintain optimal blood sugar levels. There is a natural loss of muscle mass and strength as we age. This lowers metabolic health by lowering mitochondrial efficiency. โฃ

๐Ÿ˜ข Inefficient mitochondria lead to chronic systemic inflammation โ€” which is correlated to all-cause mortality and linked to many chronic diseases like cardiovascular issues, strokes, hypertension, cancer, insulin resistance and t2 diabetes.โฃ

๐Ÿ˜ณ Poorly functioning mitochondria are found in most chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia. It will manifest as fatigue, brain fog, muscle pain, intolerance to exercise, and rapid aging.โฃ

๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Consistent moderate level exercise is what will keep your mitochondria accountable and aging in check. Learning to train and feed your mitochondria well, using clean burning fuels, avoiding refined sugar and excess starch, increasing good fats, and ensuring optimal levels of key nutrients can increase metabolic efficiency.โฃ
