Ask Dr. MaoQ: What are some of the best exercises to ensure a longer, healthier, more active life?

Our cardiovascular and lymphatic circulatory systems rely on movement to help with circulation of blood and extra cellular waste transport.

Movement of muscles, joints, and tendons promote renewal and circulation as well as extending range of motion to prevent arthritic build-up and stagnation. Moderate load-bearing exercises are essential for bone density and tensile strength, and this is especially important as we age. Cardio-stimulating exercises, the activities that increase the heart rate, provide stimulus for the cardiac muscles to maintain proper rigor and endurance. Exercise also helps to utilize excess energy to prevent it from getting stored as body fat.
