Mitochondrial Oxidative Capacity and NAD+ Biosynthesis are Reduced in Human Sarcopenia Across Ethnicities

This study showed that mitochondrial dysfunction is one of the strongest markers of sarcopenia (age-related muscle loss) in three distinct ethnic populations. Individuals with sarcopenia exhibited major impairments in energy production and significantly lower NAD+ levels.
