Older men and women that supplemented 500 mg of resveratrol a day combined with aerobic and resistance exercise for 12 weeks improved mitochondrial density and muscle fatigue and had a 45.3% increase in muscle fiber area and a 20% increase in total muscle fiber myonuclei compared to men in the placebo group.
In addition, participants that were treated with resveratrol had an 8% increase in knee extensor muscle peak torque, 14% increase in average peak torque, and 14% increase in power after training, whereas exercise did not increase these parameters in the placebo-treated older subjects.
Is there something about resveratrol that would point to this only working in older people? Might be worth it to try taking a 1000mg pill for a few months. Only 30 bucks for a bottle. I’m 29 and hit the gym 5-6 days a week.
So do you take resveratrol? I saw what you said on Rogan’s podcast
Being 69 years old I found this very interesting. I saw that there is another longer abstract of this study. When I look at it I noticed something I found strange. The placebo group had a change in there lean body mass from 50 k to 49.5 k where as the subjects taking resveratrol had there lean body mass decrease from 48.5 k to 46.5 k . https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5861947/
