Can Exercise help you avoid Covid-19 infection?
While there are no studies right now that formally indicate this, some research does indicate that an antioxidant known as Extra-cellular Superoxide Dismutase (EcSOD) could be helpful in treating patients who develop ARDS, which is often the end-stage of severe Covid 19 infection. This powerful antioxidant helps keep infections from getting a foothold.
Because your muscles naturally make EcSOD as you exercise, you can make lots of this without ever having to stop in a doctor’s office. One sure fire way you can make lots of this antioxidant is to exercise vigorously for at least 30 minutes 3 times a week. In addition, exercising outside will help manufacture Vitamin D which we also know boosts immunity.
