According to a group of researchers exercise is incredibly effective in a very short period of time and as such even the slightest bit of exercise is useful. The study was focused on exercise and its affect on DNA and cells, the results are good news for everyone because it shows that there is a more direct link than we previously though. Scientists already knew that exercise triggered various genes in the DNA strand which helped metabolism and muscle growth but they did not know exactly how fast, now we know that it occurs almost immediately.
The research paper released this week showed a nearly 100% change of DNA and genes being impacted almost instantly. This is quite surprising given the fact that researchers generally believed it would at least take a short bit of time. The immediate reaction by DNA was seen in both active, and inactive workout participants so even if you don’t frequently workout it will have the same affect. This is great news because even for people that haven’t worked out at all there will be an instant chance on the DNA level which boosts metabolism and cell energy burn rates. Of course this alone is not enough to lead to significant weight loss but every little bit helps, especially when it is an instant reaction. Further research is being conducted to see if this reaction could possibly replicated with a medical drug or something that would function as a weight loss pill.
