Research shows that an antioxidant enzyme we produce when exercising may stave off or lessen the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a condition that occurs when the lungs become so inflamed they get stiff and swollen, leading to fluid buildup and oxygen deprivation. ARDS is one of the complications that people with COVID-19 can develop, and it is associated with a higher death rate from the disease.
“If you exercise regularly, you will have more EcSOD and better ability to deal with any stressors,” Dr. Yan says. The research suggests that EcSOD is one of the ways exercise may protect people with COVID-19 against more severe complications, like ARDS.
Why Is EcSOD So Good for Us and How Does It Protect Heart and Lung Functioning?
Although our muscles naturally produce EcSOD, they produce it in higher quantities during vigorous exercise. After it is produced in the skeletal muscles, it then spreads through the blood to other organs, such as the lungs, heart, and kidneys.
