How does regular exercise impact metabolic health and glucose metabolism?

A) Improves glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity.
B) Stimulates glucose translocation and enhances insulin production.
C) Influences metabolic health and modulates energy balance.



A) Improves glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity.



Regular exercise positively impacts metabolic health and glucose metabolism by improving glucose uptake in muscle cells and enhancing insulin sensitivity. During prolonged exercise, glucose transporters are stimulated to translocate to the muscle cell membrane, allowing for increased uptake of glucose from the bloodstream into the muscle cells. This process helps to offset hyperglycemic tendencies and allows the body to use glucose more effectively. Additionally, regular exercise has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, meaning the body responds more efficiently to insulin, promoting better regulation of blood sugar levels. These effects contribute to improved metabolic health and reduced risk of metabolic disorders such as diabetes. Option A accurately reflects the benefits of regular exercise on glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity, making it the correct answer. Options B and C do not align with the information provided.
