Regular exercise is already proven to reduce the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. However it can also have a positive effect on how the body responds to pathogens like viruses.

Exercise can benefit the immune system in a number of ways including improving the way our immune system cells actively look for bacteria and viruses.

It also helps with reducing inflammation and reduces oxidative stress on the body. This is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body, which can lead to cell and tissue damage.

Exercise For Health

These factors are linked to chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, arthritis and heart disease.

By doing regular exercise we improve our circulation which aids in circulating a variety of immune cells around the body.

By helping your immune system cell get mobilised, they are likely to catch pathogens earlier. Increased circulation also means any inflammatory or potentially cancerous cells can be effectively and swiftly eradicated. 

Sciencemag.com recently released an in-depth report regarding the immune system and COVID-19, check it out by clicking this link Sciencemag COVID-19 

In order to reap the benefits of exercise you should engage in some form of exercise 3 to 4 times a week for at least 60 mins. This can be as simple as a brisk walk or a run. 

A mix of both aerobic training and resistance training is ideal though, as it will improve the ability of the heart to circulate our blood. Thus providing the previously mentioned benefits, plus greater strength and bone density.
