Title: Exercise can improve energy production in fat, liver, kidney, and brain cells
Author: Little, J.P.; Safdar, A.; Benton, C.R.; Wright, D.C.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Like skeletal muscle, fat tissue increases the activity and number of mitochondria (the cell’s energy producers) in response to chemical signals associated with exercise. Although more research is needed on brain, liver, and kidney tissues, exercise may be useful in treating disorders associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. This research may also explain why increased exercise leads to overall better health.
