The importance of exercise
The findings were reported in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
This discovery has been welcomed by Nicki Bundock, of Surrey-based firm CurraNZ, the UK’s leading supplier of New Zealand blackcurrants supplements.
Nicki explains: “Regular exercise is one of the best ways to reduce your chances of health problems like heart disease or type 2 diabetes.
But if you’re not an active person, starting an exercise plan and actually sticking with it can be incredibly difficult.
Studies have shown more than half of us ‘drop out’ of exercise plans after just six months, reverting to inactive lifestyles.
And it’s therefore vital we find ways to make exercise more tolerable and enjoyable.
