The cardiovascular system helps move hormones throughout the body during exercise

Cardiovascular system is the most important part of our body.

It works as the circulatory system for the human body.

As we all know our heart is the pumping organ and the veins and arteries are the blood carriers, these cardiovascular systems are included under the circulatory system.

On 21 April 2007 Pharmacology & Therapeutics Brazil shared the research on the physical exercise.

Physical activity improves good health by preventing or minimising the negative consequences of diseases such arterial hypertension, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. 

Human movement studies are becoming a burgeoning field of research in epidemiology and public health.

In both humans and laboratory animals, a large number of studies have indicated that exercise training lowers sympathetic activity and/or enhances parasympathetic tonus. 

In both normotensive and hypertensive patients, changes in the autonomic nervous system have been linked to lower heart rates (resting bradycardia) and blood pressure.

However, the studies examining how physical activity causes bradycardia and lowers blood pressure are still unexplored. 

Pharmacological research has been particularly helpful in understanding the role of receptor and transduction signalling pathways in the heart and blood vessels in response to exercise.

The information from studies utilising animal models and humans to establish the effect of exercise training on the cardiovascular system are summarised and examined in this study.


All endocrine glands of our body secrete their hormones in the blood directly and blood also includes in the cardiovascular system so, even if we are not doing cardio our cardiovascular system helps move hormones throughout the body.
