    Is it OK to Run if You Vape?

    Running for most smokers is a difficult prospect to contemplate doing. Cigarettes put fairly significant strain on a users respiratory and cardiovascular health, which are incredibly important for running for any kind of extended period of time. However, now that switching to a vape is an easily available option for most people, many have made a health conscious decision to switch from cigarettes to a vape. The detrimental effects of cigarettes are well documented and they seem to affect nearly every major system of the human body, but vaping is less so. However, the news so far does point to significantly reduced harm to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.

    Effects on the Lungs
    Inhaling anything besides air into your lungs is not generally considered a good thing. With that out of the way, when compared to smoking cigarettes, vapers lungs are in dramatically better shape. When someone switches from smoking the lungs immediately begin to repair themselves and lung capacity increases as the body begins to expel the built up tar and mucus that accumulates for a career smoker.

    If youíre just comparing smoking and vaping, vaping wins by a long shot when it comes to lung health. Thatís not to say itís completely harmless, but a vape user is in a much better spot health-wise to begin running than a cigarette smoker.

    Effects on the Heart
    Similar to how vaping improves lung health when compared to that of a smokers, the cardiovascular system has a similar rebound effect. Systolic blood pressure lowers when switching from smoking to vaping, bringing it back to levels of non-smokers. This is partially due to the better airflow received via the lungs, but also due to the lower nicotine content of vapes.

    Nicotine is long documented to have an effect on heart disease. Itís a stimulant that increases heart rate and activates adrenaline systems in the body and over a long time can be detrimental to cardiovascular health. Though there are some athletes that use nicotine for these exact purposes, no nicotine is generally better for you long-term than being a regular user.

    Can You Run If You Vape?
    The short answer is, yes. For the most part. Vaping and running is a far healthier alternative to smoking. The harm reduction that vaping offers is enough in most cases to allow a user to run, and even take it seriously. Smokers will have much more trouble running for even short distances than that of vapers and non-smokers and are at a much higher risk of cardiovascular problems when doing so.

    Anecdotally, my own cardiovascular and respiratory health was majorly improved when I made the switch. My performance at the gym was like night and day even after a few weeks of not smoking, so I can vouch for the harm reduction benefits. However, there is always things to consider and it is best to get tested by a doctor before making serious health decisions such as a running regimen to lower the risks involved.

    I think running has strong positive impact on health no matter if you smoke/vape or not. I successfully combine my daily running activity and vaping my flavored disposable electronic cigarette Sea Stix .

    https://femadata.com/physio-flora-cp-review/ also has another consequence, however. Chemical signals from the target organ are what the neuron originally followed to make the first connection. This is still what they're looking for, however, chemicals do not diffuse easily over a much larger distance, and so the signal is enormously weaker. It turns out that the Schwann cells can also confuse the issue because they're putting out signals of their own that can make the neuron survive, which helps, but also can confuse its pathfinding. This is a real problem, because it can lead a sensory neuron, which is a neuron that accepts input from an organ to the brain, to be attracted to the wrong organ, and vice versa. One of the worst consequences of this is that motor neurons are very often attracted to the skin, and since they are output neurons, designed to signal from the brain to the muscle, they are completely unable to receive signals from the skin and transmit them to the correct spots in the brain.
