Women eat more blueberries to build muscle

Blueberry is rich in nutrition, with eyesight, anti-aging, enhance resistance and other health effects. A new study published in the United States recently found that eating more blueberries also helps women to grow and repair their muscles and make them stronger. < p > < p > the team of Dr. Anna Talak Mercer of Cornell University conducted a 6-week trial on 22 female participants, 12 of whom were between 25 and 40 years old, and 10 were between 60 and 75 years old. The researchers added freeze-dried blueberries to their regular diet, ensuring that they consumed the equivalent of 1.75 cups of fresh blueberries a day. At the same time, participants avoided other foods rich in polyphenols and anthocyanins. 1.5 hours after eating blueberries, the researchers collected blood samples from participants to see how the serum affects the function of muscle progenitor cells by managing oxidative stress capacity, oxygen consumption or metabolism. The results of culture experiments showed that for women aged 25-40, a diet rich in blueberries significantly increased the number of myoprogenitor cells and reduced the death rate of muscle progenitor cells. This suggests that eating blueberries helps fight oxidative stress and increase cell oxygen consumption, thereby reducing fat and muscle mass. According to the data of the Centers for Disease Control and prevention of the United States, human muscles will gradually lose strength, flexibility and endurance as they grow older. Especially after the age of 30, the muscle mass decreases by 3% – 5% every 10 years. The result of skeletal muscle degeneration is loss of activity and quality of life. The new study is an important step in translating the results of cell culture and animal studies into potential dietary therapies that can improve muscle regeneration after injury and during aging. 20
