Muscles and The Immune SystemIncreasing muscle mass is a great way to improve body composition and boost the immune system. Research shows that senior adults with greater skeletal muscle mass have an increased number of immune cells in the blood. This indicates that muscles and the immune system are interrelated. When the muscles are worked out, myokines are released. These are hormone-type proteins that strengthen the immune system that helps protect against diseases. A study revealed that regular exercise increases the release of T lymphocytes/T cells. Regular exercise also helps reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, obesity, various cancers, and cardiovascular diseases.
