The Benefits of Cardiovascular Care

The human heart is the most important organ in the body. When a person’s heart is damaged, it affects every aspect of their life. In extreme cases, cardiovascular health issues can be fatal. This fact alone underscores the benefits of cardiovascular care.

For more than 40 years, scientists and researchers from organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine have written and published studies showing the link between physical activity and cardiovascular well-being. The conclusion of all of these studies is that the more fit a person is, the lower the chance they have of developing cardiovascular health issues. The flip side is also true. If a person becomes sedentary and begins to live an active lifestyle, they are at risk for cardiovascular health issues.

Interestingly, research has shown that it is never too late for a person to take their cardiovascular care seriously. Even increased physical activity during midlife is associated with a decrease in mortality rates. Unfortunately, even though all of this information is public knowledge, it is estimated that less than one third of Americans engage in the minimal amount of physical activity that is required for cardiovascular well-being. The minimum is set by agencies like the CDC.

There are a number of reasons why increased exercise reduces cardiovascular risk factors. First, the more a person exercises, the higher their tolerance becomes and the more they are able to exercise in the future. When a person increases their activity level, they lose weight, thereby taking stress off their hearts. Exercise is linked to lower blood pressure, which takes stress off the heart. The more a person exercises, the less bad cholesterol, LDL, and the more good cholesterol, HDL, they produce.

Increased exercise leads to improvements in muscle function and strength. It also increases the body’s ability to absorb and to use oxygen. As a person’s ability to transport oxygen in their body improves, they are able to do regular daily activities without getting tired. This in turn puts less stress on the heart and lowers the risk for cardiovascular ailments.

There is even some evidence that patients who are recently diagnosed with heart disease and who begin an exercise program are able to go back to work sooner and have quantifiable improvements in their quality of life. This include more self-confidence, less anxiety, and less stress, all of which alleviate tension on the heart.

Cardiovascular care is an important part of an overall health care routine. A person does not need to be a marathon runner to do exercise that will improve their health. Just this little bit of cardiovascular care can mean the difference between a healthy heart and one that experiences trouble.
