10 Minutes to a Healthier Heart—and Longer LifePosted: September 9, 2014
It doesn’t matter how busy you are. Everyone can spare 10 minutes of their day…especially if it may help you live longer. And that’s just what this natural solution may help you do.
D.C. Lee is an assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State. He led a team of researchers that looked at data from over 55,000 adults. And it was a diverse group to say the least. Subjects were between 18 and 100 years-old.
Mr. Lee and his team found that people in one subgroup were 45% less likely to die from heart complications. In fact, they were 30% less likely to die in general.1 And they all had one thing in common…
They were all runners.
On average they lived three years longer than non-runners. But that’s not the only good news researchers revealed. They also found that the benefits were the same regardless of how many hours subjects ran in a week.2
People who ran for just 10 minutes a day—even at slower speeds—reduced their risk of death from heart complications by 50% compared to non-runners.3 That’s an extra 5% higher than the average for all runners. And some subjects ran for three hours—or more—a week.
