What are the benefits of running?
Scientists have discovered the power and source of youth – running. Scientific research has also been proved that running can help tone the body. Director of preventive medicine at Brigham and women’s Hospital in the United States, M.D., Dr. Joan Manson pointed out：“The most beneficial activities to human body are dynamic movement that is similar to running.” Here are the latest findings about the benefits of running.
Keep a good eyesight
People who run 35 miles (about 56 kilometers) a week are 54% less likely to visual deterioration with age than those who run 10 miles(about 16 kilometers).
Maintain normal blood pressure
People who run 10 miles (about 16 kilometers) a week are 39% less likely to have high blood pressure than those who run 3 miles (about 4.8 kilometers) a week.
Enhance the physiological function
The people who burn at least 3000 kcal ( equal to run 5 hours’ combustion heat) are 83% less likely to have severe erectile dysfunction than other people.
In all aerobic exercise, running’s strong bones function is the most obvious. The American West University’s researchers found in comparison with the bone mineral density of runners and cyclists: 63% bicycle enthusiasts show lower spine and hip bone density, while in running enthusiasts, this proportion accounted for only 19%.
The researchers conducted a survey with a group of British people. Of those polled, who has been carried out one day and the other day is not exercised. Participants said that they make fewer mistakes on the day of excise. Attention is more concentrated, and work efficiency is higher.
Mind is more flexible.
A study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society shows that women who excise more during juvenile time are less likely to suffer from senile dementia than those who are seldom do excises.
