Ten Surprising Benefits of Exercise

Live longer

Exercise helps prevent diabetes, cancer, and chronic diseases, reducing your risk of premature death. 

Research shows that 10 minutes of moderate exercise could prevent 110,000 premature deaths annually. More exercise can do even more, with 20 to 30 minutes daily lowering deaths by 13% to 17%.

To increase your exercise time, try our PRE formula with guarana, a plant-based caffeine stimulant that is gentler on your system, with no crash and no jitters. It also contains adenine, ribose, and phosphate, which help your body generate its own energy.  

Ten Surprising Benefits of Exercise

A healthy heart at any age

A 2022 study found that daily exercise contributed to a reduced risk of cardiovascular problems.  

  • People who had 20 and 40 minutes per day of moderate or vigorous activity had fewer heart problems than those who weren’t physically active. 
  • Among men, 20 minutes of daily exercise was attributed to a 52% lower risk. 
  • Men aged 70 to 75 benefitted the most.

Less stressed, less depressed

Exercise can minimize the negative physical effects of stress and depression through healthier cardiovascular, digestive, and immune systems.

With exercise, the brain releases happy hormones, neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. Some people focus on their running or reps in a type of meditation that can reduce tension, anxiety, and depression. 

 Studies have found that:

  • Sedentary people are 44% more likely to be depressed. 
  • Those with mild to moderate depression who exercise for 90 minutes a week get results similar to people who take antidepressant medication. 
  • Moderate exercise for 75 minutes a week lowered the risk of depression by 18%, which went to 25% with 2.5 hours of weekly exercise.

Think straight

No surprise here, but what’s good for your body is good for your brain. 

Research shows exercise promotes blood flow to the brain, fights inflammation, and supports new brain cells. This can reduce cognitive decline and improve your mental functions. Exercise helps you sleep, allowing your brain to clear out harmful proteins.  

Even people with early cognitive decline and memory issues were better able to plan and make decisions after working out three to five days a week.

Concentrating on the reps and steps can boost energy and optimism, which help you stay calm, clear, and focused in everything else you do.

TruLabs ENERGY + FOCUS can help you be more productive during the day, so you can get every job done and still get in that essential workout.

Reach and maintain a healthy weight

Diet and exercise are a dynamic duo for weight loss. While aerobic exercises (cardio) are one way to work off calories and reduce fat, strength training is a great way to improve your body’s lean muscle-to-fat ratio and build bone strength. 

But any activity that gets your heart rate up will contribute to weight loss. Choose the one you enjoy the most, so you’ll have fun and stay with it.
