Bangalore: Dec 6, 2013

 

Pharma multinational Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. on Friday roped in former Indian captain Anil Kumble in promoting fitness and a healthy heart.

 

“Doctors world over prescribe regular exercise as part of cardiovascular risk management and advise people to have a heart-healthy diet to improve the function of heart, reduce cholesterol levels and bring hypertension under control,” Kumble said on the second day of the Cardiological Society of India (CSI)’s 65th annual conference at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.

 

Delivering a talk on the role of physical fitness and cardiovascular health, the legendary spinner said fitness and a healthy heart were very important in keeping his performance in the game at the peak.

 

“Regular cardio exercise increases stamina and helps to keep metabolism at a higher level and excess weight under check. Had it not been for regular exercise, it wouldn’t have been possible for me to perform at peak in the game,” he said.

 

“Daily exercise on a regular basis increases fitness level and expands capacity to perform better. Doctors should set an example to their patients by including exercise in their busy schedule,” he said on the occasion.

 

Kumble represented India in 132 Tests and was instrumentally for many victories. As a right-arm leggie, he took a whopping 619 wickets in Tests and became the third highest wicket taker in the game. He is also one of the bowlers to take 10 wickets in a Test innings.

 

About 6,000 delegates from India and abroad are participating in the four-day CSI conference to exchange views on the latest trends in cardiovascular medicine.
