Maintaining an active lifestyle has never been as important as it is now. A recent study from UVA stresses the importance of exercising regularly. "Dr. Zhen Yan, a professor at UVA’s Cardiovascular Research Center, says regular exercise promotes the production of special antioxidants that protect many vital organs, including the heart and lungs. A study completed before the pandemic showed these antioxidants can help protect the lungs from Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, or ARDS. It’s one of the major causes of death in patients with COVID-19." - from NBC 29
