Sports scientists say that a new study shows that caffeine assists in slowing-age related muscle deterioration. Though studies still need to be conducted on humans, scientists are 'hyped' about the results, potentially scoring another point for caffeine.
In research presented Saturday at the Society for Experimental Biology meeting in Salzburg, sports scientists took two different types of mouse muscle, a leg muscle called extensor digitorum longus, as well as diaphragm muscle and tested how they performed when dosed with 70 micrograms of caffeine. They tried this for mice of different ages three weeks, 10 weeks, 30 weeks and 50 weeks. They found caffeine can boost power to elderly muscles, making it potentially helpful in slowing age-related muscle deterioration.
