Exercise is Good For Your Heart, No Matter Your Age
Exercise can counteract muscle breakdown from aging and heart failure, according to a new research in the Journal Circulation.
Researchers found that four weeks of aerobic exercise led to increased muscle strength and reduced inflammation among heart failure patients regardless of their age.
The study's authors say the findings challenge the belief of many doctors that cardiac rehabilitation does not really help in the elderly.
