The design of the human immune system is truly a masterpiece. This amazingly complex and efficient network of processes links major organs, tissues and billions of specialised cells. It’s capable of identifying millions of potential enemies and implementing strategies to combat them. Which doesn’t mean that it can’t be compromised by illness, medication or environmental conditions. When this happens, the best way to rebuild your defences is to provide your body with what it needs most to make a recovery – a healthy diet and lifestyle that includes moderate but effective aerobic exercise.
As the U.S. National Institute of Health explains, “Exercise not only helps your immune system fight off simple bacterial and viral infections, it decreases your chances of developing heart disease, osteoporosis and cancer.”
We all want an immune system that’s fighting fit. Rebounding on a bellicon® is a great way to drill your body’s defences, especially as aerobic exercise is one of the key aspects of immune support – and it’s a lot more gentle than jogging.
The reason bouncing gives your immune system such a boost is that it effectively raises your metabolism and enhances cardiovascular and lymphatic circulation. This increased flow moves lymphocytes and antibodies – the troops – faster through your body, ridding it of impurities and invaders.
When you’re stressed, your immune system can take a knock. While it’s almost impossible to avoid life’s pressures, exercising on a bellicon® is a natural form of stress relief. The gentle up and down motion loosens tight muscles and lubricates joints, massaging away your day and helping you to get a better night’s sleep. At the same time, more oxygen is transported throughout your body and mood-enhancing endorphins are released, both of which leave you feeling calm and content.
The best choice is always the one with maximum benefits and minimum drawbacks. Which is why we at bellicon have for years advocated the benefits of regular, moderate-intensity workouts on our mini trampolines. By “moderate”, we mean that your breathing and heart rates are elevated but you can still hold a conversation. The latest medical research proves that we were right all along. As a recent Duke University study shows,
this kind of lower-intensity workout is just what the doctor ordered for getting into shape, lowering blood pressure and sugar levels as well as burning excess body fat and keeping cholesterol under control. These findings are also right in line with the British and American Heart Associations’ recommended 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic exercise, divided into sessions of at least ten minutes and ideally spread throughout the week. Bouncing on a bellicon® is a healing detox made fun. At last, you’ll enjoy making the healthy choice to exercise.
Your lymphatic system is a crucial part of your immune system. Bacteria, toxins and cancer cells collect in lymph fluid before being flushed from your body.
A bellicon® workout is one of the best ways to dramatically increase its flow rate and cleansing action.

The health benefits of bouncing on a bellicon® go way beyond just boosting your immune system. Not only are you working every muscle in your body. You’re also strengthening your bones, conditioning your cardiovascular system, improving your balance and even tuning up your cognitive abilities.
Just a few minutes of quality time on your bellicon® each day add up to a healthier, fitter and stronger body. You definitely won’t want to go back to the old you.
