Exercise to Avoid… Getting Sick Next Year!

Wellness

Regular resistance exercise over a long period of time builds the immune system according to a study at Acadia University of Nova Scotia in 2004. Twenty two adults who worked out for 30 minutes of vigorous physical activity, three times a week for 11 months enjoyed a significant improvement to their defences against viral infection. The tests showed that there was a significant increase in the bodies natural killer cell activity, which is the immune system’s first line of defense against viral infection.

However, previous research of people doing up to three months of resistance exercise did not find the same increase in immune system activity, and the more recent update suggests that the extended period of exercise could be the major influence on strengthening the immune system.

Here’s a link to web MD which I think has solid advice about how to improve your wellness through this cold season, AND the next.
