Effects of endurance and strength sports on mitochondria and healthy aging

Certain reactions caused by training are dependent on the type of training. Endurance training activates mechanisms, that are not only important for formation of new mitochondria but also play a role in the energy metabolism.

However, strength training is mainly involved in the biosynthesis of proteins and cell growth.

Recent studies of HealthBioCare in cooperation with the University of Vienna show, that a few drops of finger blood are sufficient to measure the influence of sport on health. Epigenetic biomarkers provide information about alterations in the cell induced by exercising and diet.
