New Delhi: The human body is truly a mystery, if you stop to think about it. We just never stop growing, even when we are sleeping.

Our bodies are forever evolving, with every second. We often talk about refreshing and rejuvenating ourselves through various activities like travelling, exercising, yoga, etc. However, looks like our bodies have a mind of their own, which they use to refresh themselves.

Seems like someone actually stopped to think about it and put the question forward to Invisibilia.

What Lulu Miller, a co-host of Invisibilia asked will actually get the wheels of your brain spinning. The question was whether all the cells in our body turn over every seven years as is sometimes claimed, with new cells replacing old ones? Or is there something that we hang on to for life?

NPR's Skunk Bear crew decided to answer that question with a video. What they revealed will surprise you and make you perceive your body in a different way.

As it turns out, we could never have guessed that this is how our bodies refresh themselves.

Check out the video below!
