Restricting feeding in mice to an 8-9 hour window improved endurance | Satchin Panda

Parent Episode: Satchin Panda, Ph.D. on Time-Restricted Feeding and Its Effects on Obesity, Muscle Mass & Heart Health

Mitochondria are tiny organelles inside cells that produce energy in the presence of oxygen. Having healthy mitochondria is critical to endurance exercise, which utilizes an enormous amount of energy. When mice are restricted to a 9-hour window of feeding, their mitochondrial function in multiple tissues increases, and mitochondrial biogenesis – the production of new mitochondria – is enhanced. In this clip, Dr. Satchin Panda describes the beneficial effects of time-restricted feeding in mice in terms of mitochondrial health.
