A nightly jaunt on the exercise wheel enhances muscle-repair capabilities in old mice, according to a new study by researchers at Stanford School of Medicine.

Only older saw this benefit, which the researchers found is due to the rejuvenation of the .

“The effect in old animals is very significant,” said Thomas Rando, MD, Ph.D., professor of neurology and neurological sciences and director of Stanford’s Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging. “We found that restores youthfulness to tissue repair. Their muscle stem start to look and behave like those of much younger animals.”
