Full Body Benefits of Exercise

We all know that physical activity is good for our body – but do you know the real details?  Take a deeper look at the ways your vital organs benefit from daily movement.  You won’t ever have to wonder again why exercise gives you such a wonderful glow and feeling!

 

HEART
The heart pumps blood and oxygen to all vital organs. Exercise training increases the maximum amount of ventilatory oxygen uptake by increasing both maximum cardiac output (the volume of blood ejected by the heart per minute, which determines the amount of blood delivered to the exercising muscles) and the ability of muscles to extract and use oxygen from blood.

 

LUNGS
Maximum ventilatory oxygen uptake drops 5% to 15% per decade between the ages of 20 and 80. The best way to take care of the lungs is to give them lots of exercise and not to smoke. Deep breathing of fresh air is the best exercise for the lungs.

 

LIVER
It metabolizes food, filters toxins and converts ingredients into substances that are needed in all parts of the body. Your liver is one of the largest and most important organs in your body. The liver when healthy will store vitamins, sugars, fats and other nutrients from the food that you eat.

 

KIDNEYS
Your chances of developing a kidney stone in your lifetime are 1 in 10. More than 300,000 people suffer from renal failure each year. The kidneys produce urine which is the waste in the body. Often kidney problems are the result of dehydration.

 

SKIN
The skin is the body’s largest organ. By sweating naturally you assist in cleansing the skin and keeping it elastic and healthy.

 

LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
The lymphatic system is the bodies filter system which supports immune function. A healthy lymphatic system filters out bacteria and other foreign particles.

 

COLON
The colon is vital for effective health because it serves the function of transporting waste out of the body. Hydration of the digestion system will improve colon health. This can be done by drinking an equivalent number of ounces of water to your body weight every day.

 

BLOOD
Blood delivers the needed nutrition to all the vital areas of the body.  A regular exercise routine stimulates the blood system and assists the body in eliminating waste.
