Science Behind Improving Mitochondria Function
I’m joined today by Dr. Anurag Singh to discuss an important study that found the link between Urolithin A and mitochondria health. As we know, mitochondria is responsible for overall brain health, and so this is a crucial consideration for improving brain function. On today’s program, Dr. Singh talks in depth about the study that was conducted, and how we can use this information to take better care of our brains.
