Importance of being healthy?

Eating healthier is one of the first steps to maintaining optimal health.

The proper nutrition can do wonders for your body, inside and out. Nutrients give you energy and keep your heart beating, your brain active, and your muscles working. Nutrients can also help to build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons as well as regulate body processes, such as blood pressure.

Importance of exercising
Running, walking, swimming, elliptical cross-training, biking, and using the Stairmaster are a few ways to obtain physical health. The benefits of cardio exercise:

Reduced risk of heart disease
Improved blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels
Improved heart function
Development of strong bones

Strength training increases bone density and reduces the risk of osteoporosis. Building muscle also contributes to better balance, which can help you maintain independence as you age.
