A new study reveals that spending just 30 minutes daily in physical activities such has jogging or doing vigorous exercises for at least five days a week can extend the life span of the human beings up to ten years. The aging process can be slowed down with the help of daily routine physical exercises.
According to WCVB News, researchers from the Utah-based Brigham Young University have found that physical exercises can be helpful in slowing down the aging process in human beings. The study reveals that persons who are involved in high levels of physical exercises daily have 'significantly longer' telomeres as compared to a person who does not exercise at all.
The scientists say that people who look 40 years of age, not necessarily have to look 40 years in age. Many people look much younger than their actual age, and it is only possible due to physical exercise. Those who exercise on daily basis have a slow aging process, resulting in young biological age as compared to the real age, less biological aging takes place in their bodies.
News Week reported that the research study paper on slowing down of aging process has been published in the journal Preventative Medicine. The research was done using the survey data of 5,823 people who were the participants of the National Health and Nutrition Examination survey between the years 1999 and 2002. These people were asked about their lifestyle questions including their exercises routine.
They additionally took a gander at telomere length. Telomeres are defensive tops found at the closures of chromosomes that help keep them stable-much the same as how the plastic sheath toward the finish of shoelaces prevents them from fraying. Each time a cell isolates, telomeres get shorter.
Inevitably they turn out to be too little to secure the chromosomes and cells get old and kick the bucket-bringing out maturity or the aging process in humans. Shorter telomeres are responsible for many age-related diseases such as cancer, stroke or any type of cardiovascular disease.
