Scientists from Denmark and Australia in the framework of recent studies have identified over a thousand biochemical reactions occurring in muscle tissue during physical activity. The obtained knowledge will help experts better understand what happens to the body during exercise. The next step, scientists assume, will be to develop special pills for athletes.
"During physical exertion there is a lot of very complex reactions in the muscles and we managed to localize so many of them," - says Professor of the Department of nutrition, exercise and sports, University of Copenhagen Eric Richter, one of the authors of the study.
A number of chemicals can mimic the effect of physical activity. In the future, you may be pills, carrying out the dream of every lazy: to have a muscular body and spend all of your free time on the couch.
