We all know that exercise is important, but did you know it can reduce inflamation? Here are few examples of how it can benefit:
– American adults who engaged in frequent physical activity tended to have lower CRPs (C reactive Protein – read below) than adults who were more sedentary.
– In type 2 diabetics, high intensity resistance and aerobic training reduced inflammatory markers over the course of a year (independent of changes in body weight, meaning activity was the key factor).
– Endurance combined with resistance training reduced CRP in young, healthy women better than endurance training alone. * In obese, post-menopausal women, a basic moderate cardio program lowered CRP without really affecting body weight either way over the course of a year.
C-reactive protein is produced by the liver. The level of CRP rises when there is inflammation throughout the body.
