How Exercise and Diet Benefit the Heart


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/13/2014 -- Exercise and diet are two of the most important ways we can love our hearts and keep them healthy. But how exactly do these two things accomplish that important task, and what are some of the ways they help reduce the risk of heart disease?

Exercise not only improves circulation and helps strengthen the heart muscle; it can help to raise the good cholesterol in our systems as well. Those who exercise experience a reduction in blood pressure both through increasing heart and blood circulation and raising the HDL levels of cholesterol in our blood.

In addition to this, those who are active are also less likely to start smoking, or have an easier time quitting, which is beneficial for the heart as well as the whole body. But even fit smokers have a reduced risk of heart disease over those who remain sedentary.

As mentioned above, diet is another important part of maintaining and improving heart health, and regular exercise can help improve dietary choices. We need energy to be active, and in order to increase energy we must increase our intake of healthy foods to fuel body movement. This change in diet can help with weight control, assist in reducing cholesterol by reducing fat intake, and lower blood pressure with reduced intake of sodium.

Along with the above, exercise and diet can help manage stress levels. Stress may seem inevitable, but those who exercise and eat healthy are more likely to experience less stress or feel depressed. This aids in keeping the whole body healthy and reducing rises in blood pressure related to stress.

Overall, exercise is something the body should be doing to maintain mobility and keep a person healthy overall through their entire lives. The benefits are numerous, and there’s no better time to get started on experiencing them.
