The benefits of exercise are abundant. Heart health, brain function, mood, weight loss, and bone structure, among other things, can all be improved with proper exercise. However, like most things, there can be some uncomfortable side effects from exercise. One of the most common, especially for people who are new or returning to an exercise routine after some time off, is known as delayed onset muscle soreness.
There is no question that our nation, and much of the world, struggles with many different chronic diseases. By definition, a chronic disease is one that lasts over a long period of time, many of which are never corrected and will last until death. These diseases are some of the leading causes of death in America, with heart disease being #1, followed by cancer and obesity-related diseases such as Type II diabetes. A common theme with these chronic diseases is that many, if not all, can be linked back to a condition called metabolic syndrome.
