Slight Beneficial for Cardiac Exercise Equipment
Study finds no need to exercise too much to get a healthy heart, because sports are less likely to provide protection against the risk of heart disease.
Experts revealed that at least do a little exercise is better than no exercise at all, as quoted from Lifemojo, Thursday (08/04/2011).
Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health said the sport for 150 minutes a week can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by 14 percent compared with people who are physically never exercise.
Meanwhile, the risk of heart disease will decline rapidly with increasing the amount of physical activity undertaken. Known to perform physical activity as much as 300 minutes of moderate intensity can reduce the risk by 20 percent.
These results were obtained after the researchers collected 3000 data and various studies of physical activity on cardiovascular disease, so it can be obtained quantitative measures of physical activity affect risk of heart disease.
In a review of several studies that have been done previously known that the results are found to be more prevalent in women compared with men, although not known with certainty what the reason.
Sports that do to the heart generally improve breathing and improve the way the body uses oxygen. This will make the heart stronger and more efficient in pumping blood to the body.
Some well known cardiovascular exercise to help stay healthy heart is brisk walking, running, swimming and cycling.
