We all know healthy eating and exercise is important to maintain optimum health, but can exercise help improve the features Lumivita has been specifically designed to target?
The answer is not directly. Indirectly however, exercise does have the potential to help bring benefits to the health and growth of hair, skin, teeth and nails.
How does it do this?
It's simple; by increasing blood flow exercise helps to carry nutrients and oxygen to every cell in the body including those making up your skin, nails, hair and teeth. It doesn't end there, the same improved blood flow triggered by exercise, also helps to eliminate and carry away waste products like free radicals from these same areas - a perfect way for example...to detoxify the skin!
Then there's the fact that with exercise, and particularly with cardio exercise, the human body sweats...
This is great news for your skin because when your body sweats, pores get bigger and the sweat pushes out the impurities like grease and dirt. Left to their own devices they clog up your skin leading to unsightly spots and blackheads but exercise has a similar effect of a facial on your pores, just be sure to cleanse your skin afterwards to make the most of the situation and not leave the debris lying around to seep back in.
Exercise also helps to support a good immune system, which if you read our last blog post you will know is important to help maintain optimum health for all parts of your body, including skin, hair and nails.
Then there's the effect of regular exercise on stress. Exercise is well known for it's calming effect, and that it can help support more restful sleep. It does this by enabling a more natural release mechanism for the stress hormone our bodies produce, cortisol. It's been widely written that there may be a link between stress and hair follicles going from their growth phase into a resting phase which can have a detrimental effect on hair growth.
Exercise helps to balance sexual hormone levels such as Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone. These hormones can have a direct effect on the health of all of you, and especially your hair!
Researchers have found that people who engage in regular exercise are also less likely to suffer with serious gum disease - which is great news for your teeth!
So on the whole, as well as taking Lumivita, yes it does makes very good sense to practice regular exercise as well as eating well and maintaining a healthy immune system if you want to continue looking and feeling your very most, possible best!
