Australian scientists are attempting to make a pill containing many of the benefits of exercise.

But it won’t be medicine for lazy couch potatoes.

The futuristic therapy is designed to help immobile patients unable to exert themselves at an intensity that delivers the rewards of physical activity.

Australian National University researchers could have already discovered the key to making it a reality.

They’ve identified unique molecular messages that travel to our brains and potentially our eyes immediately after exercise.

The team believes it may be possible to hijack these and bundle them into a vitamin-like supplement that delivers some of the benefits of physical activity.
