Doctor's Expert Insights: Kendall County Residents--Discover How Exercise Transforms Your Body at the Cellular Level

Know this: "This new Stanford University study highlights molecular changes that are induced by exercise. We know that exercise results in improvements in our immune function, stress response, and metabolism. This study is interesting because it is helping us create a more detailed map on what molecular changes are occurring, both during and after exercise; and we're learning how these changes are being impacted by exercise at the cellular level.

Regular endurance exercise--stuff like brisk walking, jogging, or cycling, has a profound impact on our health at the most basic level - our cells. Across nearly every tissue in the body, from our muscles to our brain, exercise triggers molecular changes that boost our immune system, improve how our body processes nutrients, and optimize the function of our cells. These positive changes can help prevent chronic diseases and keep us healthy as we age." Dr. Adriana Davis, Family Medicine.
