7 News: Australian scientists developing'exercise' in a pill
30/11/2021.

Scientists are working to develop a pill that delivers the health benefits of exercise.

Researchers at Australian National University have identified unique molecular messages that travel to our brains and potentially our eyes immediately after working out.

The team believes it may be possible to hijack these and bundle them into a vitamin-like supplement that delivers some of the benefits of physical activity.

But it won’t be medicine for lazy couch potatoes.

The futuristic therapy is designed to help people suffering from neurogentarive diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s as well as immobile patients.

“We all know how good exercise is for our bodies, now researchers have worked out that your muscles are actually sending signals to the rest of your body when you exercise,” Dr Joshua Chu-Tan told Sunrise.

“These signals can actually reach your brain and your eyes”

Dr Chu-Tan said researchers are working towards isolating these signals they can potentially be re-coded and placed in a pill.

The research was published in Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology.

I think that this is great and the sooner the better.. Some people cannot do the exercise they once did and this would be so useful.
