Is it possible to create pills that eliminate the need for morning exercises?

Almost all of us from childhood know aboutthe benefits of morning exercises, but for some reason we don’t do it. But regular exercise in the morning not only gives energy, but also prevents the development of fatal diseases, including cancer. Many of us can gather our will into a fist and still begin to do morning exercises, but there are also people who simply do not have such an opportunity. Such people include the elderly and patients with injuries, but did you know that the benefits of physical exercises can be obtained even without performing them? A new discovery by scientists from the US state of Michigan may be the first step to creating a pill that will increase our strength and endurance despite the lack of physical activity.

Sports will not be necessary in the future

About the new discovery of American scientists wastold in the science publication Nature Communications. A group of scientists from the University of Michigan for several years in a row studied a special class of proteins called sisters. They knew that they accumulate in the muscles of people and animals after performing physical exercises and increase strength and endurance. In the course of scientific work, they became interested - is it possible to improve the physical properties of living organisms by simply artificially introducing protein into their muscles? Indeed, it would be cool if, instead of morning exercises, one tablet could be drunk.

Do you know why sports do not help lose weight?

Strength and Stamina Pills

To find out the possibility of creating suchpills, scientists conducted a laboratory experiment with fruit flies. These insects, which in groups fly around plants and fruits, have one interesting feature. Each time they are placed in a container, they try to climb up the wall and fly out of it. Knowing this, scientists created for them a kind of "simulator", which every 15 seconds shakes the flies to the bottom and makes them climb up again and again.

It looks like a regular fruit fly (Drosophilidae)

With this device, scientists trainedthree groups of flies. The first group was deprived of the opportunity to produce sisters, and individuals from the second group were able to produce this protein in especially large quantities. The organisms of the flies from the third group were not subject to change and produced the substance as usual.

And everyone should go in for sports, because otherwise the human heart becomes the same as that of a monkey

After three weeks of training, scientists found outhow much physical exercise has affected the ability of flies to crawl and fly over time. As it turned out, the flies from the control group, thanks to training, became much stronger and more enduring. Individuals whose sister production was blocked remained as weak as before. But then flies, in which the concentration of the sister was initially high, stood out with amazing physical abilities.

Scientists are one step closer to creating pills to increase strength and endurance

In subsequent trials, scientists alsointroduced in some flies the maximum amount of sister. The substance helped insects become champions in strength and endurance, but during additional training their abilities did not improve, because the concentration of the sister in their muscles was already at the maximum level.

Ultimately, scientists decided that the creationpills to increase the strength and stamina of people is quite possible. In the future, they want to find out exactly how the protein improves the physical capabilities of living organisms and try to develop tablets suitable for human consumption. They can be used to prevent muscle atrophy in patients who have been stationary for a long time.
