    Exercise linked to better mental health - but too much may do harm

    Exercise linked to better mental health - but too much may do harm

    The article does not offer a reason why too much exercise isn't great for your mental health.

    LONDON(Reuters) - A study in the United States has found that people who exercise several times a week report having better mental health than those who take no exercise, with team sports and those involving social groups having the most positive effect.
    The research also found that more exercise was not always better for psychological wellbeing, with people who exercise every day reporting lower levels of mental health.
    Exercising for around 45 minutes three to five times a week was associated with the biggest benefits, according to results of the study published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal.
    The study included all types of physical activity, ranging from childcare, housework, lawn-mowing and fishing to cycling, going to the gym, running and skiing.
    Exercise is known to bring health benefits by reducing the risk of illnesses such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes, but its links with mental health were less clear.
    Some evidence suggests exercise may improve mental health, but experts note that the relationship could go both ways with inactivity being both a symptom of, and contributor to, poor mental health.

    Too much intense working out can temporarily fry your central nervous system. I know, I've been there.

    Physical and mental fatigue are partly due to an inability to efficiently remove built up toxins resulting from the body's metabolism because there's just too much of it. Moderate exercise facilitates this process but overexercise strains it. Keep in mind that the brain has to compete for nourishment demanded by an over-stressed body.

    People who exercise a lot need to supplement. Don't listen to people who claim your usual diet will cover it. It perhaps covers couch potatoes.

    I'm not sold on supplements aside from Vitamin D but I agree about people being far too cavalier about the average diet.

    Interesting point about the brain.

    I was actually going to buy a protein supplement but I opted for low fat milk, Greek Yogurt and Skyr. Maybe 40% of my protein comes from low fat dairy now and I feel better. Fewer cramps and the tendinitis in my hamstring is a non-issue most of the time now.

    Skyr is awesome, BTW. Not sure who has heard of it. It's basically Iceland's version of yogurt.

    I am sold on them. Although, you would be wise to have blood work done to see what you actually need and don't need.
