12 Minutes of Exercises Boost Metabolites


The sad reality of wanting to stay healthy is that not all of us can spare an hour a day for exercise. Often, living room workouts, garden WODs and kitchen mobility sessions are squeezed into lunch breaks or as a quick blast when our schedule permits. Even during a time when most of us are spending more hours at home, finding the minutes to get a sweat on is a challenge in itself, never mind the actual workout.

However, if a new Harvard-affiliated research paper by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is to be believed, short workouts will no longer equate to a failed workout.

As detailed in a paper published in Circulation, the research team found that approximately 12 minutes of cardiopulmonary exercise was enough to affect around 80 per cent of circulating metabolites — the substance that’s necessary for a functioning metabolism — as well as various biological pathways

Short bursts of exercise elicit widespread changes in the body’s levels of metabolites


Short bursts of physical exercise induce changes in the body’s levels of metabolites that correlate to, and may help gauge, an individual’s cardiometabolic, cardiovascular and long-term health, a study by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has found. In a paper published in Circulation, the research team describes how approximately 12 minutes of acute cardiopulmonary exercise impacted more than 80% of circulating metabolites, including pathways linked to a wide range of favorable health outcomes, thus identifying potential mechanisms that could contribute to a better understanding of cardiometabolic benefits of exercise.

Much is known about the effects of exercise on cardiac, vascular and inflammatory systems of the body, but our study provides a comprehensive look at the metabolic impact of exercise by linking specific metabolic pathways to exercise response variables and long-term health outcomes. What was striking to us was the effects a
