Running improves heart health because it forces the body to operate at a high capacity. This means heart rate is increased, which causes rapid blood flow. Increased heart rate during exercise also supplies working muscles with added oxygen. Vital nutrients are carried to the body’s tissues in this process. The energy needs of the body are naturally increased while running, forcing blood vessels to palpitate. The outcome of this symbiotic process ultimately improves the body’s ability to function at a high level, fueling your overall well-being.
The health benefits realized as a goal of three to four days of running each week can transform your lifestyle and dramatically improve your overall well-being.
