With the increase of age, cholesterol, triacylglycerol and other components accumulate on the blood vessel wall, the flexibility of the blood vessel wall is reduced, the blood vessels are hardened, the blood flow is blocked, and finally various cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are caused by ischemia. A reasonable diet and adequate exercise have a positive effect on the protection of blood vessels. According to the latest international study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, the effectiveness of swing-type sports such as table tennis, tennis and badminton ranks first in protecting cardiovascular.
In the new study, researchers from international institutions such as the University of Sydney, the University of Oxford and the University of Edinburgh conducted a combing analysis of data on more than 80,000 English and Scottish participants for nearly 30 years. At the start of the study, the average age of the participants was 52 years. The researchers surveyed the participants’ information on the type of exercise, whether the exercise was sweating, and the frequency of exercise for 4 consecutive weeks. The study investigated the association between six major sports and deaths, including cycling, swimming, swing sports, aerobics, football and running. The results showed that compared with those who did not participate in the corresponding exercise, the swing-type athletes’ mortality rate decreased by 47%, the swimmer’s mortality rate decreased by 28%, and the aerobics and cyclists’ mortality rates decreased by 27%. % and 14%. Further research found that swing sports, swimming and aerobic exercise can reduce cardiovascular mortality by 56%, 41% and 36%, respectively.
The results of the new study show that the types of exercise are different and the effects of heart protection are different. The swing-type exercise is most beneficial for protecting cardiovascular health. Another important finding of the new study is that exercise time is not much better. The optimal duration of each exercise is 45 to 60 minutes. In terms of exercise frequency, exercise for 3 to 5 days a week, the best effect once a day.
Researchers said that with the accelerated pace of life, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are no longer the “patent” of the elderly, and many young people’s blood vessels are quietly hardening, and patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are becoming younger. Therefore, it is imperative to protect the blood vessels. Only by taking early measures can the risk of various cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases be minimized.
