Heart Disease Prevention and Exercise

Heart disease is a medical condition that increases your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke or aneurysm. Exercise greatly reduces your risk of developing heart disease by helping you to lose weight, lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol level and releasing stress. To achieve maximum benefits, one should exercise at least 20 to 30 minutes, three to four times a week. Exercise can be divided into stretching; cardiovascular or aerobics and finally strengthening exercises. Regular exercise has many benefits as it can:

  • Strengthen the heart and cardiovascular system.
  • Improve the circulation.

  • Help lose weight.
  • Help reduce stress, tension, anxiety, and depression.
  • Improve sleep.
  • Make you feel more relaxed and rested.
