Often when we think about starting an exercise program, it can feel overwhelming. We assume that we’ll need to adopt an intensive, time-consuming effort that will be difficult to maintain and easy to give up on. According to the US Department of Health, less than 50% of youth and 24% of adults are getting enough physical activity every day.
Walking is the perfect solution for maintaining good health and receiving a host of benefits that have lasting effects on our well-being. Pairing a regular walking routine with a daily dose of ASEA® REDOX Cell Signaling Supplement is a great way to prioritize our health.
The Physical Benefits
Walking not only improves fitness but has been shown to aid cardiac health, maintain healthy joints, reduce pain and chronic disease, improve circulation, and even alleviate depression and fatigue. One study found that people who walk at least three and a half hours per week have an 11% reduction in death risk.
Walking 10,000–12,000 steps per day lowers both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. And consistent daily walks are just as effective as running for low blood pressure. Walking is also more gentle on our joints than running but has similar benefits.
Mental Health Matters Too
Walking has been shown to be incredibly healthy for our minds and can aid in the prevention of anxiety and depression. It has also been shown to increase sleep quality and quantity, reducing the likelihood of insomnia.
Walking outdoors has been shown to relieve stress and rumination. A study published in 2018 showed that just a ten-minute short walk helped improve mood in adults.
A Cellular Supplement Pairing
As we age, our cell communication breaks down, the signal weakens, and gene expression can be disrupted. Regulating gene activity can help our body communicate and keep things moving. ASEA REDOX helps improve a healthy inflammatory response as well as cardiovascular and arterial elasticity. It also helps regulate hormone balance to support vitality and wellness. By taking a cellular supplement, we can help protect, rejuvenate, and restore our cells for optimal communication while we engage in physical activity.
