A research team from the Leipzig University in Germany found through a small-scale experiment that even patients with a history of severe heart failure, after riding a bicycle for 30 minutes a day for 4 months, new stem cells are born in the bones and the number of capillaries in the muscles is also Increased. These all help the heart to repair itself.
The researchers pointed out that during exercise, the heart needs to deliver 10 times the usual amount of blood to the muscles of the body. In this process, stem cells are automatically released to relieve the stress on the heart and repair broken parts. If you continue to exercise, even if it is severely necrotic and blocked myocardium, new blood vessels can be produced. According to the researchers, there is currently no drug that can promote the production of new stem cells. Therefore, exercise is the only way for heart disease patients to regain their health.
Habitual cycling exercise can expand your heart even more. Otherwise, the blood vessels will become thinner and thinner, and the heart will become more and more degraded. In old age, you will experience the troubles it brings, and then you will discover how perfect cycling is. In fact, because cycling compresses blood vessels, blood circulation is accelerated, and the brain takes in more oxygen, so you breathe in the more fresh air.
Cycling is a sport that requires a lot of oxygen. An old man once completed a 460-kilometer bicycle trip in 6 days. He said: “The elderly must exercise at least 3 times a week to strengthen the heart and restore normal function. You must make the heartbeat fiercely, but not for too long. This way it will be able to adapt to emergency situations, such as driving a car or resisting difficulties.”
Cycling can enhance cardiopulmonary function, prevent overweight, improve sub-health, and make you feel comfortable and happy. Let us join the cycling team and take action to protect our hearts. But please don’t exercise outdoors in the haze weather.
