July 2018 Newsletter
In this month’s newsletter we look at how to be healthier and happy this Summer plus we take this opportunity to showcase our new shiny website. We also have a new look newsletter, we hope you enjoy it.
Exercise and Why it is Good for You.
Summer season leads to longer, warmer days and more activity and sports. We encourage activity at all ages, be it training for the Iron Man challenge or increasing your daily step total. It all counts!
At rest, our bodies only open about 25% of the capillary vessels in our body. These capillaries are only one blood cell wide but are fantastic at providing oxygen to cells and removing waste from cell respiration.
The aim of exercise is to increase your activity until you experience relative shortness of breath and this demand for oxygen/cell nutrients leads to vasodilation (opening/widening) of blood vessels.
Another amazing fact is that consistent, regular exercise can actually increase the density of capillaries in the body, making the body fitter with increased stamina.
