Light Exercise After Meals Can Be Good For Your Heart

It’s common knowledge that exercise has a multitude of benefits for your health. However, no one has really considered the perfect time to do exercise. A study by the America College of Sports Medicine has concluded that the best time to do light exercises is after meals.

In a small sample of healthy participants who were not currently participating in an exercise program, a low-intensity exercise combination of walking and light resistance exercises suppressed the elevation of post-meal triglyceride concentration after eating a high-fat meal. This effect was noted in VLDL, LDL, and HDL fractions.
Although some believe that exercising prior to meal is better, there’s no harm in getting some movement in post-meal. Light exercise if performed after loading up on food can held promote digestion.
