Living Well

People who exercise regularly are less likely to get sick. There’s evidence to show that physical activity may help flush bacteria out of your lungs. It encourages antibodies and white blood cells to circulate more rapidly. The brief rise in temperature during and post exercise may prevent bacteria from growing. And exercise slows the release of stress hormones – too much of which can make you susceptible to illness.
