( — January 24, 2019) Orlando, FL — Engaging in regular exercise has long been found to be healthy. It is normally adults that engage in exercise routines, but in children, physical activity has been found to offer future benefits.

A report was published in the European Respiratory Journal.

This report was made by Robert J. Hancox, MD, from the Department of Preventive and Social Medicine, Dunedin School of Medicine, University of Otago, New Zealand, and Finn Rasmussen, MD, from the Department of Allergy and Respiratory Medicine, Near East University Hospital, Nicosia, Cyprus.

In this report, it was found that there seems to be a dose-response relationship between the level of fitness improvement from childhood to adolescence and ling capacity in adulthood.

The scientists analyzed the link between the two using the findings of two population-based childhood health as well as development studies.

A multidisciplinary Odense schoolchild study involved 1369 children from third grade through age 29 years. They conducted spirometry at regular intervals and maximal exercise tests at ages 9, 15, 21, and 29 years.

In the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study, scientists followed a birth cohort involving 1037 children who went through spirometry testing at the same intervals as the Odense cohort and aerobic fitness tests at ages 15, 26, 32 and 38 years.

The former study has revealed that aerobic fitness increased with age into early adulthood. However, it declined after 21 years of age. In the Dunedin study, it was found that there was also a decline after the age of 26 years.

With the use of linear aggression, the researchers analyzed links between maximal aerobic fitness and lung function at each age. They adjusted the analysis for weight, height, sex, current asthma, and current smoking (age 15 years and older).

It was found there were increases in the lung volumes up to early adulthood. It is wise to take all the measures necessary just to take better care of and protect lung health.

In addition to consuming healthy foods, it is best to consider the use of some lung health enhancing supplements. One is berberine, which is being widely studied by experts due to the benefits it offers.

Berberine has been found to have strong anti-inflammatory properties. This natural remedy has been found to aid in acute lung inflammation due to cigarette smoke.

As a matter of fact in a study, it has been found pre-treating mice with berberine was able to decrease lung inflammation.

To experience its benefits, it is wise to consider the use of Divine Bounty Berberine. This amazing formula is highly potent, and has all that it takes to deliver the healing goodness of this natural remedy.
