- As you age, your heart ages too. But according to research, exercise may help slow down the progression.
- Dr. Ben Levine, a sports cardiologist at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center likens the heart to a rubber band. As it gets older, it becomes stiff and brittle. The heart becomes less efficient in processing oxygen.
- Writing in the American Heart Association's journal, "Circulation", Levine finds that getting in shape, even at middle age, may head off the decline and help restore your aging heart. In his study, they found that the group doing the higher-intensity exercise saw dramatic improvements in heart health.
