Be the Very Best with Pokemon Go

You want to be your very best?! Catch all these health benefits from playing Pokemon GO.

1. On a walk to hatch your eggs?

Well research shows that on average every minute of walking can extend your life by 1.5 to 2 minutes. Briskly walking or jogging can also help you calm down, which can lead to weight loss. That’s because when we’re stressed out we tend to crave fatty foods packed with sugar and our body metabolizes food MORE SLOWLY.

2. You’re soaking in some Vitamin D while catching Pikachu.

Natural vitamin D assists in bone and cell growth, strengthens our immune system, and reduces inflammation. BUT make sure you lather on some sunscreen before you hit up those pokestops!

3. And it’s uniting people within our nation!

The social interaction has a positive impact on our emotional and mental health.
