Exercise is Good for the Heart

Happy Heart ImageEven a single workout could be good for the heart. That’s the conclusion of a fascinating new study in mice that found that 30 minutes on a treadmill affects gene activity within cardiac cells in ways that, over the long haul, could slow the aging of the animals’ hearts.

Although the study involved mice, the results may help to explain just how, at a cellular level, exercise improves heart health in people as well.

There’s no question that, in general, physical activity is good for hearts. Many studies have found that people who regularly exercise are much less likely to develop or die from cardiac disease than people who are sedentary.

Exercise is known to improve our blood pressure, pulse rate and cholesterol profiles, all of which are associated with better cardiac health.

Every 3 minutes in the UK someone is struck by a heart attack – www.bhf.org.uk

Standing increases the average persons heart beat by 10 beats a minute which improves health and increases brain function.

Just another great reason to get using a standing desk on a daily basis.
