ABC of injury, recovery and repair genomics

One of the great yet lesser known advantages of regular exercise is that it improves immunity, increases resistance to fight infections, speeds up recovery from external trauma and even reduces the effect of autoimmune diseases.

The level of this positive response to exercise is, to a great extent decided by the genetic make-up of a person. Specifically, genes determine the degree of body’s response to enhance repair and recovery processes after exercising.

Therefore a genetic assessment revealing the make-up of these genes in your body would aid you in understanding the above said aspects of fitness, and modify your fitness regimen accordingly.
