Health Benefits of Running

Getting your body to a healthy state might seem impossible to some- but in reality, it’s as easy as running! Running has many health benefits, and it’s easy to do. Here are just a few examples of what running can do for you:

Weight Loss: Running burns a lot of calories, and is an excellent form of exercise. Burning all these extra calories will aid in weight loss.

Cardiovascular Health: With regular running, you can drastically increase your cardiovascular health. Running helps increase the elasticity of your arteries and lower your blood pressure.

Bone Density: Running will help increase the strength of your bones, and your muscles. This can reduce your risk of osteoporosis.

Appetite: Because you are burning more calories when you run, you will eat more and have a healthier appetite. Running regularly will also help your digestion.

Diabetes: Studies show that if you run 5 days a week for a half hour, your risk of diabetes is reduced.

Cancer: Running this amount can also help reduce your risk of certain types of cancer, including uterine, breast, and bowel cancer.

Energy: Running regularly can also help improve your energy.  If you constantly feel tired no matter how much sleep you get, running can help by getting your blood pumping and waking you up.
