Why Exercise Can Make Pills Work Better

It’s time to get moving. Several new studies find exercise can improve the effectiveness of drugs, including those used in chemotherapy.

Scientists specifically found that doing 30 minutes of moderate-intensity cycling three times a week can dramatically improve the heart health of dialysis patients. Another study found that exercise can help protect against certain cancers returning, and even makes chemotherapy more effective by ensuring the drugs are being delivered more efficiently through the blood vessels.

Science has also shown that exercise has a direct role in mobilizing our immune cells, especially those that can eliminate tumor cells. There are already more tests planned for this autumn, when doctors plan to prescribe exercise to some cancer patients along with their other cancer treatments. (DailyMail
