Exercise training may exert an anti-inflammatory age-associated effect

This study supports the recent evidence that exercise training is anti-inflammatory. Although aging contributes to the elevation of proinflammatory factors in blood and muscle, lifelong aerobic exercise training partially reduces these effects and promotes an overall anti-inflammatory profile. The results of the present study help to understand the long-term benefits of exercise for avoidance of a chronic inflammatory state that may contribute to poor health and functional decline in aging adults.
