How does physical activity prevent cardiovascular disease? ›

Regular physical activity prevents or delays the development of high blood pressure, and exercise reduces blood pressure in people with hypertension. Physical activity can also lower blood cholesterol levels which then decrease the risk of developing CVD.

Why is physical activity important for older adults? ›

Benefits of Physical Activity

Helps maintain the ability to live independently and reduces the risk of falling and fracturing bones. Reduces the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and of developing high blood pressure, colon cancer, and diabetes. Can help reduce blood pressure in some people with hypertension.

What are the physical activity and exercise recommendations for preventing cardiovascular disease and for metabolic health? ›

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that substantial health benefits, for CVD risk reduction, can be achieved by moderate-intensity PA of at least 150 minutes a week, or vigorous-intensity PA of at least 75 minutes a week, or any combination of moderate and vigorous-intensity PA.

What are the benefits of regular physical activity in terms of disease prevention and healthy aging? ›

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Being physically active can improve your brain health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve your ability to do everyday activities.
