HIT High Intensity Exercise

Summary of Dr Mercola’s article which is HERE

Story at-a-glance

  • Exercise triggers mitochondrial biogenesis, a decline of which is common in aging; this reverses significant age-associated declines in mitochondrial mass, and in effect, stops aging in its tracks
  • Aside from impacting your skeletal muscle and fat tissue, researchers noted that exercise induces mitochondrial changes that may also benefit your liver, brain and kidneys
  • One of the best types of anti-aging exercise is Peak Fitness, or high-intensity interval training, which boosts your body’s natural production of human growth hormone (HGH), a synergistic, foundational biochemical that addresses the serious muscle loss and atrophy that typically occurs with aging
  • Longevity is the result of an overall healthy lifestyle, so in addition to exercise other anti-aging strategies, like healthy diet, stress reduction and optimizing vitamin D are also important
