There is significant empirical evidence that regular exercise reduces fat mass and adipose/fat storage within the body which in turn promotes increased muscle production which in turn increases anti-inflammatory cytokines or proteins which communicate with cells within the body.
In short, a suitable tailored exercise routine is extremely good for both general health and fitness not to mention releasing positive anti-inflammatory cytokines.
