While many people look to plastic surgery to change aging looks, and pharmaceuticals and supplementation to address concerns like muscle wasting, osteoporosis and other conditions, more and more studies are showing the best value to attack these unwanted conditions is consistent exercise.
New research shows that regular physical activity can reduce the inflammation in the body that comes with aging, which could also help decrease your risk of developing related diseases and conditions—like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia, osteoarthritis, improve mental function (depression and anxiety), loss of muscle mass, the onset of type 2 diabetes, dementia, osteoarthritis obesity, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, certain cancers and falls.
When it comes to seeing benefits, benefits can happen almost immediately with consistent exercise. Several public health bodies –- including the American Heart Association, US Centers for Disease Control; and the World Health Organization –- have recommended getting 30 minutes of moderate exercise, 5 or more times per week.
When it comes to living longer the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) looked at more than 250,000 men and women between the ages of 50 and 71, and confirmed that the standard exercise recommendations noted above did in fact improve subjects’ longevity. An average of 30 minutes of moderate activity, 5 times or more a week, gave participants a 27% lower risk of dying during the study period, while more vigorous exercise (20 minutes, 3 or more times a week), dropped the risk of death by 32%.
In North America, less than 50% our population exercises the recommended amount, and in East Asian countries like Japan, China, and Taiwan, only 20% exercise the recommended amount.
Our recommendation: if you still want to look for an anti-aging pill, lose the car, and go walk, run or jog to find it. This way you can be assured you are getting the true anti-aging benefits and health benefits that exercises provides!
