Bursts of Exercise May Improve Levels of Metabolites

A new study, published in the journal Circulation, finds that brief bursts of physical exercise may notably improve levels of metabolites which are indicators of key physical health issues.Bursts of Exercise May Improve Levels of Metabolites

For the study, a team of researchers measured 588 metabolites in 411 people of middle age before and immediately after on an exercise bike that lasted for 12 minutes. This procedure allowed scientists to understand the effect of exercise on the metabolome.

The analysis of the received results showed that the short bursts of exercise significantly altered 80% of participant's metabolites. What's even more important, metabolites linked to health issues when resting were reduced.

Dr. Ravi Shah of the Heart Failure and Transplantation section of the MGH Cardiology Division says: “We’re starting to better understand the molecular underpinnings of how exercise affects the body and use that knowledge to understand the metabolic architecture around exercise response patterns. This approach has the potential to target people who have high blood pressure or many other metabolic risk factors in response to exercise, and set them on a healthier trajectory early in their lives.”
