Will working out improve my heart health?

Keep Your Heart Healthy

Not only does exercise boost metabolism, it also improves the condition of your heart. Regular exercise can help treat medical issues such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease among other things.

High Cholesterol: When you exercise your body produces more “good” cholesterol and decreases the production of “bad” cholesterol. This lowers the plaque buildup in the arteries and also prevents inflammation of your arteries.

High Blood Pressure: The more you exercise, the stronger your heart becomes. If you exercise regularly your heart will pump blood more easily, putting less of a strain on your heart and thus lowering your blood pressure. It can take up to three months of regular exercise to see results, so keep with your fitness workout routine and don't give up.

Heart Disease: Most people know that exercise lowers your risk of heart disease. Exercise improves your blood circulation and delivers oxygen and other nutrients to your tissues. Recent studies showed that people who start to exercise regularly after a heart attack have a better chance of survival.

It is never too late to start improving your physical fitness. Go for a walk around the block today, or run up and down your stairs a few times. Everyone has to start somewhere!
