Tessa,The natural aging process slows down all of the systems of the body, but exercise will keep you from slowing down or aging as fast. I have literally seen individuals who have never exercised begin practicing this root and it had transformed their lives. They find that they not only have more energy, but they are optimistic, strong, look and feel better, and have a new life they never could have imagined.
Get moving any way you can, in any direction you can, at any time you can. Exercise is truly the bread of life. Our bodies were created for movement.
