A 12 week study, presented at this week's 'Experimental Biology 2002' .meeting, involved a group of 14 women, all about age 60, who didn't exercise but were otherwise healthy. At the end of the study, they all had nearly 50% improvement in elasticity of arteries.
"What pleased us most was the size of the change relative to the simplicity of the exercise involved, and the short time required to see a marked improvement in elasticity," said lead author Kerrie Moreau, PhD, with the University of Colorado Human Cardiovascular Research Laboratory in Boulder.
An earlier study by this team found similar benefits in healthy middle aged and older men.
REGULAR WALKING Transforms OLDER ARTERIES
The recent study showed that walking just five days a week for 40 to 45 minutes, not necessarily briskly, but even at a moderate pace, can transform stiffening arteries into more pliable ones, as have younger women.
REDUCES HEART DISEASE RISK
Heart disease is the No.1 killer of older women. As people get older, large arteries lose their elasticity and get stiff, causing high blood pressure and enlarging the heart. Both are serious risk factors for heart disease. After menopause, women are at especially high risk. But according to this study, walking can make a big difference in reducing that risk.
HAVE A TOTAL WORKOUT
Walking with focused enjoyment of the beauty of life and the Blessings of GOD, benefits not only the body, but the mind and spirit, as well, for a total workout.

may walk, and the thing that we may do.

and they shall be My people,
and I will Be their GOD..
