Whole Body Vibration As Good As Treadmill Walking


Whole body vibration can reduce body fat and insulin resistance and improve muscle and bone strength, researchers report.

Experimenting with mice, researchers found that 20 minutes daily for 12 weeks either on a treadmill or a vibrating platform also reduced fat deposits in the abdominal region as well as on the liver.

The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University scientists concluded that whole body vibration recapitulates the positive effects of exercise on metabolism.

The scientists think the vibration benefits result from getting our cells moving.
