5 Healthy Benefits of Running
Overall Mental Health
Your body releases chemicals while you run which helps you feel more confident and happy.
Helps Prevent High Blood Pressure
Your arteries expand and contract while running, helping them to stay fit, which then helps to maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
Running builds lower body strength in addition to strengthening your tendons and ligaments.
Joint Strength & Stability
By increasing the strength of your ligaments and tendons, you increase joint strength and reduce chances of injuries.
Increase Bone Density
Your body sends essential minerals to bones to strengthen them when stressed. As running stresses your bones, these additional minerals help increase your bone density over time.
