Benefits of walking after eating:
We hear a lot about the benefits of walking and its positive effects on physiological and psychological health.
British scientists have recently concluded that walking is an absolute necessity to reduce the incidence of heart disease, especially after eating fatty meals.
Scientists pointed out that walking a relatively long distance after dinner benefits the heart muscles, and they found that walking for at least 25 minutes reduces blood lipid levels and increases the flexibility and function of blood vessels after eating a meal rich in carbohydrates.
Another benefit of walking is that it reduces the risk of obesity and high blood pressure, delays the appearance of aging symptoms and its health problems, reduces weight, and regulates the process of digestion and urination.
Regular walking reduces the level of harmful cholesterol and raises the percentage of beneficial cholesterol, which protects against atherosclerosis and the occurrence of heart and brain clots. Regular walking gives the body a harmonious shape due to the tightening of the muscles of the abdominal wall and back muscles.
The effects of walking are evident on the psychological level, through raising energy, feeling happy, and improving mood, as a result of increased secretion of endorphins, which scientists call “feel-good hormones.” It also results from improved blood circulation and greater brain activation.
