Washington: A new study has found that exercise results in improved health of blood vessels in the heart, even for those who had experienced heart failure. The research from the University of Missouri. The finding is based on a study of swines, which have very similar blood vessels and heart muscles as humans.
Craig Emter, associate professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine, studied three different groups of heart failure: one group was inactive; a second group exercising using intervals with a higher level of intensity for short periods of time; and the third group.
Emter found in the heart of the heart. "People with heart failure cannot do anything that they can handle." Emter said.
"We found that regardless of intensity level, some type of physical activity was good for heart health compared to no exercise at all," Emter added in the study published in 'Journal of Applied Physiology'.
Emter explained stiff blood vessels.
"We now have a better understanding of how the blood flows in the heart, the stiffness of the blood vessels and the impact that exercise has on heart health," Emter said. Understanding Understanding the underlying science of the heart, help Emter concluded. The research findings can be useful for human medicine as well.
