Exercise For Greater Immunity

Your ability to resist infection or fight it off once an organism has entered the body is all dependent on your immune system. You want your immune system to function at the highest level possible – now, more than ever.

An effective way to enhance your immune system is by exercising. Exercising on a regular basis can protect you from contracting diseases. Read on to learn more!

The Remakrable Positive Effects of Exercise

When you think of exercise, you likely think of its positive effects on body composition. Sure, it’s been a powerful tool in helping countless people around the globe control their weight. But did you know that it’s linked to boosting your immune system in three ways?

Increased blood flow. With better blood circulation comes a better circulation of antibodies, giving your body a better chance of detecting an infection before it can become serious.

Higher body temperature. Certain organisms need to have a particular temperature range to thrive. Exercising raises your body temperature much like your body produces a fever when you’re sick to fight an organism’s ability to reproduce.

Reduced stress hormones. People under stress get sick more often. By exercising, you can diminish the stress hormones in your body, giving you more infection-fighting power.
