Effect of Nicotinamide Riboside and Pterostilbene Supplementation on Muscle Regeneration in Elderly Humans

2018-12-03 00:02:25 | BioPortfolio


Successful skeletal muscle regeneration depends on a functional pool of muscle stem cells, termed satellite cells (SC). SC are in a quiescent state throughout adulthood, but undergo multiple cycles of proliferation and self-renewal in response to muscle damage. During aging, there is a loss of SC quiescence, and SC more readily enter an ageing-state impairing their function.

Animal studies have revealed a common denominator for increasing SC function and activity, namely Sirtuin activation. Natural stimulators of Sirtuins includes Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) (a Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) precursor) and the polyphenol Pterostilbene (PT). In this study, we aim to investigate if NR+PT supplementation will promote skeletal muscle regeneration after muscle damage in elderly humans by enhanced recruitment of SC.


14 days after start of placebo or NR/PT (500/100 mg twice daily) supplementation a muscle damage will induced in the m. vastus lat. by electric stimulation combined with eccentric work in a dynamometer. Muscle biopsies will be collected at 2 hours, 2, 8 and 30 days post damage and placebo or NR/PT supplementation will continue for the whole study period (45 days).

Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.

Phosphorus used in foods or obtained from food. This element is a major intracellular component which plays an important role in many biochemical pathways relating to normal physiological functions. High concentrations of dietary phosphorus can cause nephrocalcinosis which is associated with impaired kidney function. Low concentrations of dietary phosphorus cause an increase in calcitriol in the blood and osteoporosis.
