Weight loss is the major challenge for those who are over-weight or obese. These days we all are going through very busy lifestyle and we hardly get time to spend those hours in gym or doing workouts. Lack of sleep, unhealthy food and stressful life makes us overweight and sometime obese too. We all love to have a healthy and fit body but very few of us want to spend some hours in the gym in or doing workouts in order to get that body. Did you ever think that what will happen if just popping a pill could do it? We all are aware that exercises improve our health condition and it helps to eliminate much kind of diseases which occur due to over-weight or obesity. Health researchers uncover the fact of exercises that it’s not only helpful in improving in health condition but it also helps to boost metabolism, blood circulation and improved functioning of organs such as the heart, brain and liver. So, scientists have keep all the benefits of exercise in their mind and they made weight loss pills which can help people to get all the effect which we generally get from the workouts along with fat loss.
Weight loss pills or exercise pills that could mimic at least some of the beneficial effects of physical exercise on the body. Mr. Ismail Lehar the co-author of Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver says, we have observed the need for exercise pills for some time, and this is an achievable goal based on our improved understanding of the molecular targets of physical exercise. He says there are several laboratories which are developing these pills, which at the early stage are being tested on animals to primarily target skeletal muscle performance and improve strength and energy. At first it produces muscles stronger and faster but of course exercises are far better and beneficial than these pills because it only focuses on muscles and not any other parts of the body.
Weight loss and exercise are both different things because exercise can be done by healthy and fit people to maintain their healthy health condition for life along with over-weight or obese but weight loss can be done by those people only who are really overweight or obese. Says Mr. Lehar, people who does exercise derive many other rewarding experiences such as increased cognitive function, bone strength, and improved cardiovascular function. He added that it will be totally unrealistic expectation that exercise pill will give you all the benefits of physical exercise without moving your body at least it’s not possible in the near future.
Weight loss pills or exercise pills may offer some benefits of physical exercise and that is also especially for those who are unable to workouts with any reason. Mr. Lehar says, these pills can be used by those people who are suffering from spinal cord injury and it will be very beneficial for them because they face many difficulties in exercising due to paralysis and it can be given to them also who gets several type of detrimental changes occur in cardiovascular and skeletal muscle function. He added, there are so many research is needed to complete understand these pills. He says, we have to find out whether it has any side-effects on candidates who are consuming these pills in addition to determining their optimal dosages and potential for misuse in human and animal. Mr. Ismail Lehar says, we are on the primary stage on this new research. Further development of this weight loss pill or exercise pills that act in combination may be more effective than the single compound. We have no idea yet about the long term use of these pills on human.
