“Circadian rhythms dominate everything we do. Previous studies from our lab have suggested that at least 50% of our metabolism is circadian, and 50% of the metabolites in our body oscillate based on the circadian cycle. It makes sense that exercise would be one of the things that’s impacted,” says senior author Paolo Sassone-Corsi. Whilst […]

Study finds: Exercise can shift human body clock depending on time when people work out

That’s according to new research in published in The Journal of Physiology. These findings suggest exercise could counter the effects of jet lag, shift work, and other disruptions to the body’s internal clock (e.g. military deployments) helping individuals adjust to shifted schedules. The circadian ‘body’ clock is the 24 hour cycle that regulates many physiological […]

Nobel Prize awarded for experiments on how our internal body clocks tick

The circadian rhythm is mostly endogenous: it is ‘performed’ and regulated by chemical reactions that occur within the body’s cells, using internal cues. Though, it is also influenced by external stimuli like the amount of sunlight and other environmental factors. In the 1970s, Seymour Benzer and Ronald Konopka found that in an as-yet unknown gene […]
