An “Exercise Pill” Might Be Closer Than You Think

Scientists from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis are creating a pill that could offer the same health benefits as working out. The goal of this pill is to boost muscle metabolism, growth, and performance – without hitting the gym. While the leader of the research team admitted that “we cannot replace exercise” and that “exercise is important on all levels” – they’re working around the clock to get us off the hook and allow us to pop a pill instead of hop on a treadmill.
