A researcher at the university of Western Australia has found that muscles secrete hormone-like chemicals when we exercise them. These chemicals called myokines, are thought to reduce the low-level inflammation in the body that contributes to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's.
Different types of exercise produce different types of chemicals in the body. So mixing it up is important. For example strength training produces a surge of the hormone testosterone, which helps improve thinking and memory!
