The health benefits of physical activity

The practice of physical activity has numerous health benefits, not only for the body but also for the mind. When combined with a healthy diet, physical exercise allows reducing, or even preventing, the appearance of diseases.

There is no age or gender defined to be able to practice physical exercise, the important thing is that it is appropriate to the abilities and / or tastes of the person concerned, adapting the frequency, duration, intensity and type of sport practiced.

Advantages of physical exercise

With regular physical exercise, the human body undergoes morphological and functional changes, and it’s for this reason that disease is avoided or postponed, in addition to improving resistance / capacity for physical effort.

Some studies report that a person's level of physical activity influences body composition and that constant physical exercise is able to decrease the amount of body fat, increase or preserve fat-free mass, which includes lean and bone mass.

Among the main health benefits of physical exercise, we can highlight:
- Weight control, or even reduction;
- Improvement of body composition;
- Improvement of cardiovascular and respiratory function;
- Reduction of stress and anxiety;
- Strengthening of body bones;
- Reduction / prevention of the onset of metabolic diseases;
- Assistance in the concentration and development of specific skills.

Disadvantages of physical exercise

Athletes who practice intense physical activities are subjected to strong impacts and accumulation of micro-injuries, where there is premature loss of collagen in the joint, muscle and tendon tissues, as well as joint wear and tear. This leads to premature aging when nutritional care is not safeguarded. Supplementation with 10g / day of hydrolyzed collagen is important to avoid this excessive and premature tissue wear.
