In the future, sports will not necessarily
Almost all of us know from childhood about the benefits of morning exercise, but for some reason it does not do. But regular exercise in the morning not only gives energy, but also prevent the development of deadly diseases . Many of us can collect will in a fist and started to do morning exercises, but there are those people who simply cannot afford it. Such people include the elderly and patients with injuries, but did you know that the benefits from exercise can be obtained even without performing them? A new discovery of scientists from the U.S. state of Michigan may become the first step towards a pill that will increase our strength and stamina despite the lack of physical activity.
About the new opening of the American scientists was described in a scientific publication . A group of scientists from the University of Michigan for several years studied a special class of proteins called's actually my sister's. They knew that they accumulate in the muscles of people and animals after exercise and increase strength and endurance. In the course of scientific work they began to wonder — is it possible to improve physical performance of living organisms, just artificially introducing proteins in their muscles? Indeed, it would be cool if instead of morning exercises could drink one pill.
To determine the possibility of creation of these pills, researchers conducted a lab experiment with fruit flies. Those insects that fly around groups of plants and fruits, have one interesting feature. Every time they are placed in the container, they are trying to climb the wall up and out of it. Knowing this, scientists have created a kind of "simulator", which is every 15 seconds shaking off flies on the bottom and causes them to climb up again and again.

With this device, scientists trained three groups of flies. The first group was deprived of the opportunity to make's actually my sister's, and individuals from the second group were able to produce this protein in large quantities. Organisms flies in the third group was exposed to changes and produced the substance as usual.
a sport we ought to do for everyone, because otherwise
After three weeks of training researchers found how much impact physical exercise on the ability of the flies to crawl and to fly for a long time. As it turned out, flies from the control group through training become much stronger and hardier. Individuals who had blocked the development's actually my sister's, remained as weak as before. But flies, in which the concentration's actually my sister's was initially high, stood amazing physical abilities.
Scientists are one step closer to creating pills to enhance strength and endurance
In subsequent tests, scientists have also implemented some of the flies the maximum number's actually my sister's. Substance has helped insects become Champions in strength and endurance, but in the course of training, their ability has not improved, because's actually my sister's concentration in their muscles was already at the maximum level.

Ultimately, the scientists decided that the creation of tablets it is possible for humans. In the future, they want to find out exactly how protein improves the physical capabilities of living organisms and try to develop a tablet suitable for human consumption. They can be used to prevent muscle atrophy in patients, in a stationary state.
