Healthy Heart Exercise
ALL without having to spend hours in the gym!
It’s no secret that regular exercise is a fantastic way to speed up your weight loss, boost your confidence, and keep your body toned. However, exercise is also vitally important for improving
your overall health, and can help to lower your blood pressure, improve your cholesterol levels, and reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes:
Reduces Blood Pressure
Combining a healthy, balanced diet with some moderate exercise can work wonders for your heart. So much so, in fact, that that a recent study showed that just 30 minutes of moderate exercise five times a week could reduce your blood pressure by an incredible 75%. And another study showed a significant reduction in blood pressure for between three to nine hours after just one single workout.
Of course, it goes without saying that lower blood pressure is good news for the heart: not only will it help to reduce excess strain, lower blood pressure will also increase the heart’s efficiency over time and significantly reduce the risk of problems developing.
Improve cholesterol levels.
Yet another recent study showed a surprising decrease in the amount of ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and an increase in levels of ‘good’ HDL cholesterol over a 12-week exercise regime. This was, by and large, more down to the amount of time spent exercising than the intensity of the program—good news for power walkers. In fact, even when significant weight loss wasn’t evident, cholesterol levels still improved dramatically.
Prevention of type 2 diabetes
The combination of a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise can be an extremely powerful tool for combating diabetes and even preventing it entirely. In fact, research has shown that the combination of moderate exercise, a good diet, and a loss in weight can help to prevent—or even reverse—the symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
However, the best news of all is that no matter how old you are, how unfit you are, or how long it’s been since you last exercised regularly, it’s still possible to start leading a healthy lifestyle and claim for yourself a healthier, happier life today.
