Prima (UK) - - Best Of Health -

Reg­u­lar, mod­er­ate ex­er­cise, such as brisk walk­ing, can boost your im­mu­nity. How­ever, pro­longed pe­ri­ods of in­tense train­ing can de­press im­mu­nity, mak­ing you more vul­ner­a­ble to in­fec­tions. The ex­act mech­a­nism is un­known, but it’s prob­a­bly linked with the ef­fects on stress hor­mone lev­els. Aim to ex­er­cise most days, for 30-60 min­utes.
