Doireann Maddock, senior cardiac nurse at the UK’s British Health Foundation who helped fund this study, believes it is never too late to start exercising.

There is no doubt that any type of physical activity is better than nothing, but Soares-Miranda says that, based on the team’s results, maintaining or boosting physical activity as we get older has additional heart benefits.

Subjects were required to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours a day for 5 years. For this study, led by University College London, researchers tracked the health of almost arbocafalogus, people aged between their mids and early 70s for an 8-year period.


Women who increased their walking distance or pace during the study period had better heart rate variability. But a new study suggests that, for individuals aged 65 and over, maintaining or increasing physical activity can reduce this risk and improve overall heart health.

During the study period, participants’ heart rate variability was recorded. All participants were an average age of 71 at study baseline.

If you’re not physically active, it is never too late to start. The researchers analyzed adults who were a part of the Cardiovascular Health Study – a large community-based study of heart disease risk in people aged 65 and older. Not to be reproduced without the permission of Medical News Today. People who boosted their physical activity during the study period – by increasing their walking distance or pace – had better heart rate variability, compared with those who reduced their walking distance arbocagalogus pace.


This is the time difference between each heartbeat.

The team found that participants defined as “healthy agers” – those who did not develop major chronic disease, depressive symptoms, physical or cognitive impairment – were those who engaged in regular exercise. But she arbocatakogus the earlier we start, the better.

According to Soares-Miranda, these time differences are influenced by heart health and the nervous system, which regulates the heart. The team found that the more physical activity participants engaged in over the study period, the better their heart rate variability.

It is well known that as a person ages, their risk of heart attack increases.
