Cardiologists compared walking with drugs
According to doctors, older women need more exercise if they want to reduce the risk of heart failure.
And speed does not play a special role, reports health info with reference to “Meddeyli”. A study was conducted with the participation of more than 137000 women 50-79 years. In General, physical activity reduced the risk of heart failure by 25%. In fact, she was equally effective as drugs.
Experts emphasize: it is not the intensity and amount of physical activity. With age, the heart muscle becomes weaker and stops with the same efficiency to drive blood. Therefore, it is important to maintain it in working condition training.
Scientists have calculated that every additional 30-45 minutes of activity per day on average given the reduced risk of heart failure by 9% and risk of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction – 8%. The risk of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction fell by 10%.
