How Exercise and Diet Benefit the Heart

Los Angeles, CA – 2/13/2014

Exercise and diet are two of the mostimportant ways we can love our hearts and keep them healthy.  But how exactly do these two thingsaccomplish that important task, and what are some of the ways they help reducethe risk of heart disease?

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

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

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

Along with the above, exercise and diet canhelp manage stress levels.  Stressmay seem inevitable, but those who exercise and eat healthy are more likely toexperience less stress or feel depressed. This aids in keeping the whole body healthy and reducing rises in bloodpressure related to stress. 

Overall, exercise is something the bodyshould be doing to maintain mobility and keep a person healthy overall throughtheir entire lives.  The benefitsare numerous, and there’s no better time to get started on experiencing them.
