There are many specific benefits of exercise, one of which is the decrease in disease. Exercise increases the number of white blood cells (WBC’s) and their activity level in the body.
“Rebounding on a mini-trampoline directly strengthens the immune system, increases lymph flow, and oxygenates the blood. Unlike jogging on hard surfaces which puts extreme stress on certain joints such as the ankles and knees eventually damaging them, rebounding affects every joint and cell in the body equally.
