The study included nearly 1,700 middle-aged women, about 25 percent of whom were at intermediate or high risk for obstructive sleep apnea -- for instance, they generally were older, had higher levels of body fat and had high blood pressure.

The study also found that the benefits were significant mainly for women who participated in moderate to vigorous exercise.
