Abstract

Background: Physical inactivity and resultant lower energy expenditure contribute unequivocally to cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary artery disease and stroke, which are considered major causes of disability and mortality worldwide.

Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of physical activity (PA) and exercise on different aspects of health – genetics, endothelium function, blood pressure, lipid concentrations, glucose intolerance, thrombosis, and self – satisfaction.

Materials and Methods: In this article, we conducted a narrative review of the influence physical activity and exercise have on the cardiovascular system, risk factors of cardiovascular diseases, searching the online databases; Web of Science, PubMed and Google Scholar, and, subsequently, discuss possible mechanisms of this action.

Discussion: Based on our narrative review of literature, discussed the effects of PA on telomere length, nitric oxide synthesis, thrombosis risk, blood pressure, serum glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides levels, and indicated possible mechanisms by which physical activity may lead to improvement in chronic cardiovascular diseases.

Conclusion: Physical activity is effective for the improvement of exercise tolerance, lipid concentrations, blood pressure, it may also reduce the serum glucose level and risk of thrombosis, thus should be advocated concomitant to, or in some cases instead of, traditional drug-therapy.
