When we do physical exercises, we accelerate the blood flow through our body by the increased pumping action of our heart. This leads also our lungs, to increase our respiratory rate, helping to oxygenate our blood.
The oxygenated blood helps to remove toxins, as well as, nourish, not only the muscles, but also all the organs in the body, including the brain.
Having an oxygenated brain is essential for clear thinking, having a good memory, and for making good decisions.
