Benefits of Aerobic Exercise

Aerobic exercise is an activity that is widely performed by individuals hoping to lose weight. Others do it for their own health reasons.

Aerobics is an extended activity that makes one breathe long and hard and boosts up the heart rate, which eventually improves endurance. It makes the heart stronger and more efficient. Its activities includes, but not limited to: brisk walking, jogging, aerobic dancing, and swimming. Aerobic exercises also uses up the excess calories stored in the body that would turn out to be fats in the long run if not utilized, thereby making it an effective activity for weight control. Aerobics also helps counteract stress, and as a result, anxieties are eased away as the tensed muscles are relaxed.

Likewise, there is a research that has studied the link between aerobic exercise and mental performance of the brain among adults. Researchers have found out that when healthy adults undergo improvement on their fitness, there are improvement in their mental abilities as well, like in their memory or attention. A series of studies and investigations have been conducted and came to the conclusion that the improvements in mental abilities brought about by aerobic activities are explained by the progress in cerebral blood flow, leading to increased brain metabolism. The increase in metabolism stimulates the production of neurotransmitters and formation of new synapses. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that carry messages between nerve cells, and synapses are the connections through which this communication takes place.

Reap the benefits now and have a healthy heart, mind and body. Even cats do, haha!
