Kids' Fitness Promotes Good Metabolism

As a high school junior, Baker Mayfield was the starting quarterback for the Lake Travis Cavaliers football team in Austin, Texas. He led the team to a 25-2 record in two seasons and won the 2011 4A State Championship.

His teen commitment to sports propelled him to a Heisman Trophy after playing for the University of Oklahoma, later becoming the No. 1 NFL draft pick of the Cleveland Browns.

That makes sense to researchers from the U.K. who recently published a study in PLOS Medicine that compared more than 200 metabolic traits for 1,826 girls and boys at ages 12, 14, and 15 whose mothers signed them up for the study at birth.

The researchers looked at metabolic markers such as blood pressure, good HDL cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol, insulin and blood sugar levels, and inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein. They also measured activity levels from 2003-2005, 2005-2006, and 2006-2008.

The results reveal that more active adolescents have healthier metabolic profiles, which helps assure them of a healthier life as adults.

We're guessing Baker Mayfield's metabolic profile fits that playbook pretty well.

But to retain those youthful benefits, like Mayfield has, you have to stay active. Lead researcher Joshua Bell says: "Keeping it up is key. This includes making weight loss via diet a priority, since higher weight is itself a barrier to moving."

He also adds that it's never too late for anyone to benefit from physical activity. We agree, and that's why we say you need 10,000 steps daily.
