Exercise and Immunity

Past studies have consistently shown that one of the quickest and most effective ways to boost immunity is to move your body.  Underscoring the potent germ-fighting power of exercise – a study found that the most fit individuals get less frequent colds and when they do get them, they are milder and don’t last as long.

In this evaluation of over 1,000 adults, those who reported they exercised five or more days a week had up to 46 percent less colds than the sedentary subjects.  When the human body engages in moderate to vigorous physical activity, scientists observe an immediate activation of the immune system that results in greater numbers and more robust activity in circulating germ-fighting cells.
