Gut microbes can improve a person's motivation to exercise

Time : 6th of January 2023 10:33:11 AM

A study revealed that variations in running performances among mice were linked to the presence of some gut bacteria in high-performing mice. These bacteria produce certain metabolites that trigger sensory nerves of the gut to improve activity in the brain regions that control motivation during exercise. The findings could pave the way for studies on exercise physiology.
