Why Is Exercise Important for Men as They Age?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
The two most vital components of health are diet and exercise. At Know the Cause, we talk a lot about diet and the role it plays in health. We talk in particular about the role fungi plays in ill health, and how diet can be used to combat this virulent organism and the toxins it produces. Exercise actually works towards this end as well, and it does this in a variety of ways.


As we age, regular exercise becomes particularly critical for good health.

As we men age, becoming sedentary is a risk that should be avoided. Jobs take up many hours, families need attention and homes require maintenance. However, exercise helps keep a number of men’s health issues at bay. It does this in a number of ways:

Exercise helps oxygenate your body. Keeping your blood circulating and oxygen pouring in is good for a number of reasons, not least because it helps protect against fungal infections. It is also good for your heart. Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in America. Exercise lowers triglycerides and keeps your heart in shape. It improves circulation and helps prevent diabetes.
Study after study confirms this; exercise helps prevent the second leading cause of death in men in the Unites States – cancer. Exercise aids in keeping a healthy weight, another risk factor for multiple diseases. Exercise keeps bones and muscles strong and your mind alert; it has even been shown to mitigate the effects of depression and anxiety, two conditions becoming ever more common in our over-stressed society.

Volumes could be written on the effects of exercising. Ultimately, it just makes you feel better. It is a critical step towards health and vitality at any age; it is never too late to begin.
