One group engaged in Tai Chi, another group performed brisk walking and the last group under the no exercise habit.
What’s the result? The group performing Tai Chi had a increase in number of their specialized cells known as CD34+, a stem cell that is very important to the body’s structures and functions. They further explained that this specialized cells which are markers for blood stem cells are involved in the self-renewal of cells.
