The Case For Cardio

Posted by InterHealth Nutraceuticals on Wed, Apr 22, 2015 @ 10:00 AM




Cardiovascular exercise is a very important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Looking great, feeling great, and meeting weight management goals are all enhanced by cardio exercise. Try to get at least 30 minutes of cardio in per day. There are plenty of great options for fitting in cardio daily, including jogging, biking, hiking, swimming, and even brisk walking. Find the activity that works best for you and then enjoy the benefits! 

Heart Health

Your heart is strengthened by cardio. When you work out, your heart rate increases, so it becomes stronger. Then, it’s easier for your heart to pump blood when you are resting or doing daily activities. Engaging in cardio exercise helps keep your heart healthy and strong!

Weight Management

Increasing your heart rate increases the rate of other functions in your body, so your metabolism will increase through cardio exercise. That means your body will be able to burn calories faster.  As you continue to exercise, you increase your lung capacity. That allows you to work your way up to a higher exercise tolerance and increase your energy. That comes in handy when managing your weight.

Mood Enhancement

When you engage in cardio exercise, your body releases “feel good” hormones to your brain, like dopamine. This can help with a temporary mood improvement, which can increase over time. Regular cardio exercise can also help with sleep quality, and being well-rested is another great way to stay in a great mood. Plus, knowing what you can accomplish with cardio and how you’re improving your health is an awesome confidence booster!

Improved Relationships

One great way to bond with friends and family is to get active. Take a brisk walk with a loved one daily to keep both your heart and your relationship strong. Maybe you have a good friend who loves tennis or skiing, and you can use this time to stay in touch. Setting a regular time to participate in activities together can be an excellent way to stay fit and motivate each other.

In addition to healthy diet and exercise, we recommend adding a supplement like Meratrim® to your fitness regimen.  When paired with healthy diet and exercise, Meratrim has been shown to support healthy weight management.
