In brief: Help CV function.
Exercise, especially if moderate, can reduce the risk of heart disease because it improves cardiovascular function.
Your heart works better, and your bloood vessels and lungs are more used to exerting extra effort. Just walking every day can help greatly. It also improves blood pressure, another serious issue that can result in heart disease, as well as stroke..
