"Exercise doesn't just make you feel younger it may actually turn off the aging process!"

Studies have shown that people who are exercise regularly has more elasticity in their skin. It is also believed that sweating helps to clear impurities from the skin helping to make the skin look smooth and giving you that extra glow.  Frequent exercise and stretching can increase flexibility and help to improve our posture as we get older. There is also the matter of our Telomeres which control a cell’s aging process. As we age these telomeres get shorter and shorter. Longer telomeres are connected to living longer lives and regular exercise helps to slow the rate at which telomeres get shorter.

"Exercise doesn't just make you feel younger—it may actually turn off the aging process in your chromosomes. It has to do with telomeres, the caps at the end of chromosomes that control aging. Telomeres become shorter as you get older, and longer telomeres are associated with longevity. Recent studies have found a link between regular exercise and the lengthening of the telomeres, suggesting that exercise can slow the clock so you live longer."
