The trade secrets of the first exercise pill

Say goodbye to tedious workouts once and for all.
Loukia Papadopoulos

Did you know that more than 100,000 papers have been published connecting exercise to health? That's no surprise considering we all know how beneficial the activity can be.

Anyone with an active lifestyle can testify that regular exercise decreases the chance of physical diseases and even mental ones. However, exercise can be tedious and exhausting, and many people avoid it.

In fact, it is estimated that 80 percent of Americans don't get the recommended 150 minutes of exercise each week, and billions of people worldwide are considered inactive. This is not just a question of willpower.

Getting a regular exercise routine can be challenging as it does require some sports knowledge. If only there was a pill that could be taken instead of exercising.

It turns out there is one. In mouse models, research found that there was a pill that could keep subjects lean and fit regardless of their diets.

What does this pill consist of? Is it safe for humans? If it is so promising, why hasn't it come to market? When can we expect to purchase the miracle pill?

This video answers all these questions and more.
