Abstract

A physically active lifestyle incurs many health benefits. One recently recognized benefit of regular moderate exercise is stress reduction. The current review develops the hypothesis that physical activity may prevent stress-induced suppression of the immune system and suggests an immunophysiological mechanism (sympathetic nervous system constraint) for this effect.
