Just 25 minutes of brisk walking a day could add to seven years to your life, heart experts have said.

Researchers said moderate exercise could decrease the risk of heart attack death among those in their fifties and sixties.

The new research, presented on Sunday at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress suggests that regular exercise can delay the ageing process.

The German study put men and women aged between 30 and 60 on a daily program of exercise.

They were selected because until then they had not been regular exercisers. The study then tracked key markers of ageing in the blood. Within just six months, these showed changes in the body which help to repair the DNA.

Experts said just 25 minutes of brisk walking or slow jogging every day could buy extra years of health – and happiness.

Sanjay Sharma, professor of inherited cardiac diseases in sports cardiology at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in London, said: “When you exercise moderately, you reduce your risk of dying from a heart attack when you’re in your 50s and 60s by 50 per cent. That’s a really big deal.” Everyone should try to build in such habits to their daily routine, he said.

“Exercise buys you three to seven additional years of life. It is an anti-depressant, it improves cognitive function and there is now evidence that it may retard the onset of dementia,” the cardiologist said.  MDN
