Benefits of Exercise

The lowdown on cholesterol:  not all cholesterol is bad.  You have the good one (HDL-1 and HDL-2), the not so bad one (VLDL) and the harmful one (LDL).  To get your ratios, divide the total amount of your cholesterol by your amount of HDL.  The lower the ratio you have, the better.[1]

Ponder the statistics:  28 million Americans have osteoporosis and of this number, 80% are women.  Only ¼ of this 80% know they have the condition and only half are being treated.  The annual osteoporosis bill to the United States is $14 billion.

Studies have shown that sufficient amounts of calcium and regular exercise build strong bones.  While genetics play a major role in developing the risks of osteoporosis, individuals can control some factors that will help prevent the problem. 

 

Peak bone mass is attained in your 20’s.  Starting an exercise program while still young, even if you live in the fast lane, will help you avoid this bone disease.
