MOTS-c can also benefit athletes and physically active individuals. Studies show that this mitochondrial-derived peptide can improve exercise tolerance through various important mechanisms:
1. MOTS-c stimulates physiological adaptation and increased tolerance to exercise by reducing the levels of damaging reactive oxygen species during exercise, thereby improving performance and results. [13-20]
2. MOTS-c is actively engaged in transmitting exercise-induced signals to different body organs. [21-26]
3. MOTS-c improves exercise performance by increasing cellular levels of AICAR and activating AMPK – both of these processes boost energy production. [27-30]
