Im­mu­nity is stronger

Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - INSPIRE -

Just 20 to 30 min­utes of walk­ing each day makes you 30 per cent less likely to pick up res­pi­ra­tory in­fec­tions such as the com­mon cold, say UK re­searchers. It’s thought that walk­ing helps the body flush bac­te­ria out of the lungs and air­ways, which re­duces the chances of get­ting air­borne ill­nesses.

Walk­ing also causes white blood cells (the body’s dis­ease fight­ers) to cir­cu­late more rapidly and de­tect ill­ness ear­lier, help­ing to boost your im­mu­nity fur­ther. So for 2019, make a res­o­lu­tion to add walk­ing to your list of daily rou­tine to keep slim­mer and health­ier!
