A recent study that was published in Sports Medicine suggests that eating followed by a brisk walk can help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiac issues. Researchers discovered that even 2 to 5 minutes of light exercise after eating can lower blood sugar and insulin levels. Researchers examined the findings of seven studies that compared the impact of sitting vs standing or walking on indicators of heart health, including insulin and blood sugar levels, in a meta-analysis that was just published in the journal Sports Medicine. They discovered that short bursts of modest exercise after eating—as little as two to five minutes—had a substantial effect on controlling blood sugar levels.
The review’s findings indicate that between 60 and 90 minutes after eating is the ideal window for walking. This is when blood sugar levels usually reach their highest. Groups of study participants who were standing or walking were separated. Over the course of a day, both groups were required to perform their exercise for 2 to 5 minutes every 20 to 30 minutes.Participants in five out of seven studies had no prior history of type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. The subjects of the other two investigations were both diabetic and not.
Participants in five out of seven studies had no prior history of type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. The subjects of the other two investigations were both diabetic and not. Sharp changes in blood sugar levels should be avoided by diabetics since they may be detrimental to their long-term health. Uncontrolled diabetes can result in a number of other complications, such as heart troubles that can cause heart attacks and strokes, kidney and liver failure, which can also be fatal in many cases, and heart abnormalities that can cause angina.People with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can benefit from a few minutes of daily exercise, which includes brief walks. According to research, movement of the body stimulates the digestive system, facilitating the transit of food. Along with the apparent benefits of some regular sleep, it even helps to reduce stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol, which enhance mental health and eliminate tension, anxiety, and sadness.
