Fighting Allergies With Cardio

Fighting Allergies With Cardio Exercise probably isn't the first task that comes to mind when you've got the sniffles from seasonal allergies, but a study published in the International Journal of Sports Medicine suggests that aerobic conditioning might help reduce airway inflammation associated with allergies. It worked for lab mice!

True Strength Moment: Researchers trained these mice on a treadmill before and during allergic sensitization. The effects helped reduce the effects of airway inflammation while suppressing production of allergen-specific compounds. How cardio works on human allergies is unknown, but there's no denying that regular exercise provides a wide range of benefits.
