Exercise reverses muscle breakdown for those with heart failure

Regular exercise can reverse muscle breakdown caused by aging and heart failure.

Findings of a new study reveal heart failure patients who spent 20 minutes doing aerobic exercise each day had less muscle inflammation and more muscle strength than patients who did no exercise.

Researchers say exercise is therapeutic for people of all ages, which shows cardiac rehabilitation benefits all heart patients, no matter how old they are.
