Aerobic exercise is exercise preformed at a low level of intensity over a longer period of time. This enables the body to use its stored energy at a reduced level. This also allows the body to stay in balance and utilize our stored energy in the muscles as we need it.
Some of the health benefits of aerobic exercise are that it strengthens muscles involved in respiration and helps the flow of air in and out of the lungs. It also improves circulation throughout the body and increases the number of red blood cells for improved oxygen transportation. Some additional benefits are reduced stress, reduced depression, and improves mental health.
Everyone can benefit from aerobic exercise and we should all do it on a daily basis. One of the easiest ways to do this every day is to use a passive aerobic exerciser like the Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine, designed by Dr Inoue of Japan. The chi machine is wonderful for individuals who through age or physical limitations cannot exercise and helps to promote maximum oxygenation and circulation.
