Benefits of Anti-Fatigue
When leg muscles are active, they promote circulation through what is referred to as muscle pump. When muscles move, they compress the veins, pushing blood towards the heart and against the force of gravity. When muscles don’t move, the veins remain open, and gravity allows the blood to pool in the lowest parts of the body. This causes swelling, which is known as edema. Edema is not only uncomfortable, but it can also restrict blood flow and cause other health problems.
