Could Gut Microbes Help Build Muscle Mass?

A recent study by scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore found clues that gut microbes could be related to muscle mass and when those are no longer in the system our muscle mass starts to deteriorate.

The study conducted on mice found that the mice without gut microbes had weaker skeletal muscles and produced less energy than the mice with gut microbes.

The results of this study could provide new insight into muscle mass maintenance with respect to aging.
