Exercise to Improve Immunity

Brad Farra - Saturday, October 17, 2009

This is the time of year when everyone wants to do everything they can to boost their immune system. Moderate exercise is a great way to not only increase your immune system function, but also improve your overall health. There have been numerous studies showing the benefit of exercise on the immune system. Get out there an exercise every day. If you are new to exercise start with 10-20 minutes per day and work your way up to 45 minutes to an hour of exercise per day. The intensity level should be enough to get your heart rate up to a level where you can barely hold a conversation because you are breathing so hard. Consult your sports chiropractor if you have any injuries that might bother you during your choice exercise activity.

Here is an interesting article from the New York Times: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/10/14/phys-ed-does-exercise-boost-immunity/
