Benefits of Exercise

Take some time off to exercise your body this weekend and see the changes before next week. Here are the amazing benefits of exercise. 1. Exercise is great for your brain. It’s linked to less depression, better memory and quicker learning. Studies also suggest that exercise is, as of now, the best way to prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists don’t know exactly why exercise changes the structure and function of the brain, but it’s an area of active research. So far, they’ve found that exercise improves blood flow to the brain, feeding the growth of new blood vessels and even new brain cells. 2. It might make you age slower. Exercise has been shown to lengthen lifespan by as much as five years. A small new study suggests that moderate-intensity exercise may slow down the aging of cells. As humans get older and their cells divide over and over again, their telomeres—the protective caps on the end of chromosomes—get shorter. 3. It’ll make your skin look better. Aerobic exercise revs up blood flow to the skin, delivering oxygen and nutrients that improve skin health and even help wounds heal faster. That’s why when people have injuries, they should get moving as quickly as possible, not only to make sure the muscle doesn’t atrophy, but to make sure there’s good blood flow to the skin. 4. It can help you recover from a major illness. Even very vigorous exercise like the interval workouts is appropriate for people with different chronic conditions, from Type 2 diabetes to heart failure 5. Your fat cells will shrink. The body uses both carbohydrates and fats as energy sources. But after consistent aerobic exercise training, the body gets better at burning fat, which requires a lot of oxygen to convert it into energy. Other benefits of exercise includes 6.
