The benefits of sport for our health
Doing sport is a panacea for our psychological well-being.
Physical activity, even when practised at an amateur level, improves the mood.
In fact, it has been shown that practising sport stimulates the production of endorphins, neurotransmitters that function as natural antidepressants; the release of endorphins in the brain causes an increase in the threshold of resistance to pain and, with this an overall state of wellness.

Cycling is an aerobic sport that induces neuromuscular activity, which oxygenates the body and draws in fluids and mineral salts.
