How Exercise Improves Your Heart

Your Heart is a Muscle

Exercise is an important to all your muscles, and since your heart is a muscle, exercise can help it become more efficient and work better.
Here are some of the many benefits of exercise for your heart. Exercise lowers blood pressure and high blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease. Physical activity can aid in weight control and being overweight can put stress on the heart and raise risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

Physical activity can help prevent or reduce the risk of developing diabetes and diabetes puts you at greater risk of developing heart disease. And exercise can help you relax and lower stress which can lower the hormones that put a burden on your heart.

Exercise is key to heart health and your overall well-being. Move more!
