Movement is life.
Prevents bowel cancer
Studies show that physically active people are 30% less risk to suffer cancer of the colon and rectum than those who have little moves. For the prevention of tumours is sufficient to walk half an hour a day. But stick to the walks need, not when you come to the age of risk (cancer colon and rectal cancer usually occurs after 50 years), and even in his youth.
Normalizes blood pressure
When the sedentary lifestyle, the blood circulates mainly in the abdomen and chest. When you walk 80% of the blood rushes to the hands and feet. This leads to a decrease in systemic arterial pressure, reduces the risk of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. To get the effect, you need to walk for 30-40 minutes a day 5 times a week in a slightly accelerated rate.
Reduces the risk of varicose veins
When walking rapidly shrinking calf muscles. They compress the veins located in their thicker, so the blood is pushed upward. This helps to avoid stagnation, accumulation in the veins, stretching the walls of blood vessels. To prevent varicose veins, you need to walk at least 30 minutes a day. And in addition, often get up from the office chair or off the couch and exercise.
During physical load, which gives walking, the bones better absorb calcium. In addition, the muscles attached to the bones, by subtracting the motion, put pressure on them, and it helps strengthen the skeleton. And walking strengthens the muscles and ligaments that help to maintain balance. This reduces the risk of falls and, consequently, fractures.
While walking spent adrenaline and cortisol – hormones that are released into the blood in stressful situations. And produces endorphins that improve brain function and enhance mood. The American scientists have established that the nervous system is useful even a five minute walk. But it is better to walk longer at least half an hour.
Promotes weight loss
An hour walk burned about 200-300 calories. Not so much? But walking is not as traumatic as, for example, running. She put less stress on the joints, which in obese people are already suffering, and heart. And most importantly, better tolerated, so people are less likely to abandon it than from labour training.
