Can exercise help prevent Covid-19?

What they're not talking about

When addressing how to reduce the spread of these illnesses and improve our outcomes when we contract them, the mainstream media repeatedly sings the same tune: get boosted, wear masks, wash your hands, and avoid crowded spaces.

Unfortunately, very little is said in mainstream media sources about non-pharmaceutical remedies. The important question as far as we’re concerned is what you can do today to take your wellness into your own hands and boost your immunity naturally.  

Robust research suggests that exercise, sleep, stress, and nutrition – factors that were all but ignored by the mainstream media and public health authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic – matter a great deal when it comes to immunity. Prioritize your health and explore our original Z-Stack® formula for that extra boost your immune system is needing!

A landmark study shows exercise reduces the risk of COVID-19 death

On December 14, 2022, the American Journal of Preventative Medicine published a cohort study of almost half a million people, which demonstrated that those people who exercised at least 30 minutes per day (for the two years preceding their COVID-19 diagnosis) were four times less likely to die of COVID-19 than those who were inactive in the years leading up to their diagnosis [1].  

Exercise does more for your health than you realize:  

A recent study showed that “Those who were consistently inactive were 191% more likely to be hospitalized and 391% more likely to die than those who were consistently active.”

However, these impressive results are not unique to one study [2], and the protection exercise has against infectious disease is not unique to COVID-19.

In a systematic review and meta-analysis published in 2021, scientists found that engaging in a high level of habitual physical activity was associated with a 31% risk reduction of all community-acquired diseases and a 37% risk reduction in mortality from those diseases [3].

Exercise is natural immune booster:

We’ve known since well before COVID-19 – thanks to a growing body of evidence in a new field called exercise immunology – that exercise enhances immunity. Research from the past two decades suggests that moderate and vigorous intensity bouts of exercise less than 60 minutes augment a process called immunosurveillance, which refers to the process by which the immune system searches for foreign pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses, or pre-cancerous and cancerous cells in the body [4].  

How much do you need to exercise?  

The study above showed that it only took 30 minutes of exercise such as brisk walking per day to see a huge benefit in disease morbidity [1]. In other words, you don’t need to become an elite athlete to get the benefits of exercise.

If you don’t exercise at all, now is a great time to start, in addition to taking your Z-Stack® formula for an extra boost to your immune system along your health journey!

Order Z-Stack and strengthen your immune system

Formulated by renowned physician Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, the all-natural ingredients in Z-Stack promotes overall immune health which supports the natural defense system of the body.

Credited with saving countless lives, the "Zelenko Protocol" was developed in the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic – and Z-Stack was created as a result of this groundbreaking research.
