Exercise is an important factor to keep healthy. There are many kinds of sports, and sports need to be persistent. What are the advantages of persistent sports?
1. Relieve natural pain
If you feel pain and stiffness in your knees, shoulders, back or neck, rest is not the best way. Experts say that adults who stick to aerobic exercise for a long time have a 25% lower chance of musculoskeletal discomfort than those who always like to lie on the sofa. Exercise can release endorphins (a hormone that can relieve pain), which are pain relievers for the body, and can also make tendons less vulnerable to strain. Relieve some chronic symptoms of the body, such as arthritis. A study by the University of North Carolina in the United States proved that after six months of low-intensity exercise (such as balance exercise), patients with arthritis reduced their pain by 25% and stiffness by 16%.
Practicing yoga or Tai Chi twice a week can increase flexibility and reduce pain.
2. Reduce the chance of catching a cold by 33%
Proper exercise can not only speed up your metabolism, but also enhance your body's immunity and help your body fight against the invasion of cold viruses and other bacteria. A study by the University of Washington in the United States found that women who took heart and lung exercise courses five times a week for 45 minutes had a cold one third as often as those who took stretching exercises once a week.
Keep exercising, but don't overdo it. If you often take vigorous exercise, such as running for more than 90 minutes, it will reduce your body's immunity.
3. Healthier mouth
Experts believe that floss and toothbrush are not the only magic weapon for a beautiful smile, and exercise plays an important role. In their latest study, it was found that adults who exercise moderately for 30 minutes five times a week have a 42% lower chance of developing periodontitis, and this gum disease will occur more frequently with age. Exercise can also inhibit the occurrence of heart disease just as it can prevent periodontitis -- because it can reduce the level of C-reactive protein in the blood that causes inflammation.
In addition to keeping proper exercise, it's better to have your teeth cleaned twice a year. If the dentist tells you that you have a high probability of gum disease, you should also increase the number of teeth cleaned.
