Regular Physical Activity

Regular physical activity can lower your risk of heart and circulatory disease. When you are active the heat produced by your muscles increases your body temperature, making you feel warmer. Your heart starts to beat faster pumping more blood to the muscles you are using. Your heart is also a Muscle. If you active regularly they become stronger and harder. Your muscles are working hard so they need more oxygen. You start to breathe faster so that your blood can pick up more oxygen from your lungs. Your lungs work harder to make this happen. Once your blood picks up oxygen it moves to the muscles they are using giving them extra oxygen they need. If you active regularly more capillaries grow in the muscles you have been working.This is one reason why any activity starts getting easier over time.If you have have type 2 diabetes you have too much glucose in your blood because of less insulin.Physical activity helps you use the insulin and helps your cells use glucose even with no insulin
