Research also shows that regular exercises slash your risk of cardiovascular disease.
The more efficient your cardiovascular system gets, the better its ability to pump blood through your arteries, which, in turn, helps keep your blood pressure within the healthy range.
One example is a study published in Circulation that reveled that aerobic workouts such as running, cycling, and swimming have an immensely positive impact on hypertension and blood pressure in afflicted patients.
There are many things that exercise does to help enhance your cardiovascular health and ward off serious diseases. These include:
- Reducing cholesterol
- Lowering blood pressure
- It helps maintain a healthy weight.
All of these play major roles in the prevention of heart diseases.
And here’s the good news. You don’t need to spend endless hours at the gym or pounding the pavement to reap the benefits.
Studies have reported that exercising three to four times a week, 30 to 45 minutes on each session is enough to reverse damage to blood vessels and ensure proper cardiovascular functioning.
