Exercise Reduces Risk of Psoriasis

New study shows exercise reduces risk of psoriasis.

A new study from the Archives of Dermatology shows that vigorous aerobic exericise and calisthenics are associated with a reduced risk of psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin condition.

The study showed that women who logged 105 minutes of running or 180 minutes of swimming or tennis per week had up to a 25 to 30% reduction in psoriasis. Less intensive workouts such as jogging and walking didn’t work.

Many diseases are linked to chronic inflammation, and exercise is a medication-free way to naturally reduce inflammation and boost feel-good hormones.

Even if you’re not losing weight with exercise, you’re still reaping health benefits. So, keep it up.
