The Fountain of Youth is REAL!!!
Extensive research has
shown that exercise can make
our DNA younger and healthier
As well, it can make our bodies
rebuild strength in our chromosomes
which will help us fight off infection
and disease as we did when we were younger

Studies involving twins have shown that those who exercise for at least 3 hours per week have a lower biological age (by 9 years) and healthier immune systems than those of the same chronological age who did no exercise
As well, those participating in regular exercise programs demonstrated improved memory and other brain functions (fine motor skills like coordination)
Exercise helps to reconnect nerve endings in the brain that disconnect as we use them less (and as we age)
