The more you sweat the more benefits for your body health and stress-relief, So let’s see How exercise affects body from head to toe.

How Exercise Affects Your Body ?

Burn calories

When your body breaks down energy-dense foods, like carbs and fats, it turns them into the molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

Then, when the body converts ATP into ADP (adenosine diphosphate), it gives off energy and allows muscles to contract and move. It’s what we mean when we say we’re “burning calories,” says Joseph E. Herrera, DO, chair of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine for the Mount Sinai Health System.

Heart beats faster

Exercising raises your heart rate in order to quickly push blood and oxygen to the muscles. If you train for endurance events often, your resting heart rate may get lower, as your heart becomes more efficient at supplying blood to your organs and muscles.

Happy hormones flow

 At the start of a tough workout, you get a spike in adrenaline and the stress hormone cortisol. Your body senses you’re in “flight” mode.

Next, endorphins help cut muscle pain and improve mood. Other compounds, called endocannabinoids, may also be partly responsible for that “runner’s high,” according to animal research.

Brain gets a boost

Aerobic activity improves our thinking skills and memory, possibly because there’s increased blood flow to the brain during exercise. Getting active may also promote brain growth.

Muscles get stressed

Each time a muscle is challenged, micro tears occur, but they aren’t harmful; they contribute to muscle growth over time.

Body heat up

As your body burns calories, its temperature rises, and you sweat. Sweat wicks away heat, which allows your body to keep working out without overheating.

Digestion can turn wonky

Ever felt like you suddenly had to go to the bathroom after starting a run? Blood flow is directed away from your core and intestines to your large working muscles, which can lead to diarrhea. Tip: Avoid food an hour before exercise.
