Regular aerobic exercises are thought to beneficial in decreasing the risks for the development of metabolic syndrome. Exercise may benefit by helping in weight reduction that in turn increases insulin sensitivity of the liver and other tissues.

Physical Activity

  • Current guidelines suggest regular moderate-intense physical activity for at least 30 minutes continuously at least 5 days/week, ideally all days in the week.

Many other studies have supported the value of increased physical activity along with restricted calories in metabolic syndrome.
