Daniel Newmire received his PhD in Exercise Physiology with a sub-emphasis in Nutritional Sciences from Texas Woman’s University (TWU) in Denton, TX. He received his MS degree from Life University in Marietta, GA., and lastly his BA from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA. His dissertation researched the effects of L-Leucine and L-Isoleucine on glycemic responses in healthy, inactive adults with the goal to elaborate the regulation of these amino acids on gut hormones GIP and GLP-1 and how they may possibly independently influence skeletal muscle uptake of glucose. In the future, his passion is to further explore human skeletal muscle biology and physiology related to treatment factors such as resistance training and nutrition to investigate how they may positively influence metabolism in aging and diabetic populations to promote health, vitality, and longevity.
