Going for sports is really useful and even necessary thing for every person who wants to be healthy. However, what about pregnant women in this regard? Today's results of one very interesting study from the American Physiological Society have shown that pregnant women can actually get more benefits and positive features from playing sports, primarily in the context of the safe and harmonious development of their offspring – since the study initially focused on studying this physiological mechanism in two control groups of mice. Thus, sport can be useful to everyone!
As for the study itself, then the experts decided to study the question of the real specific benefit of physical exercises of small and medium load for pregnant female mice – forcing them to engage in more or less intense physical activity for an hour every day. Then, the scientists looked at the second control group of female mice who did not play sports and noticed that the offspring of the first group had significantly more brown fat, which quickly and efficiently burns extra calories compared to the offspring of the second group of rodents.
Approximately the same results were observed in several pregnant women volunteers who went through not too intense exercise during pregnancy – their children, for the most part, also could burn fat faster and eliminate toxins, which is an extremely important aspect of the child’s early successful development. especially in the modern world where bacteria successfully adapt to drugs.
Thus, the new study added to the list of several previously performed studies aimed at identifying the real outcome of the effects of physical exertion on the body of a pregnant woman and her child. It is worth noting that specialists are also interested in over the next short time to double-check the indicators and conduct another additional study.
