Exercise and Cardiovascular Health

It is important to get up and move to help improve your cardiovascular system.  Research shows that exercise helps with improving Cardiovascular disease (CVD).  Although CVD is preventable, there are other factors that play into CVD, which are considered “non-modifiable” such as; age, genetics, race, and family history. Despite this, it’s never too late to reap the benefits of exercise because it can improve cardiovascular health, decrease strokes and reduces the risk of developing coronary artery disease.
Anything that gets the heart pumping faster is a great activity! Brisk walking, swimming, cycling, yard work, household task, and stair climbing are beneficial to cardiovascular health.
