(NaturalNews) Not many people have heard of a rebounder, but bouncing on this simple contraption has an amazing number of health benefits. One such benefit is how it strengthens the immune system by quickly and efficiently flushing out the lymphatic system.

Blood and lymph are the two types of fluid that flow through the circulatory system. This consists of the cardiovascular system (heart, blood, and blood vessels) and the lymphatic system (lymph, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels).

It is common knowledge that the cardiovascular system relies on the heart to pump blood, but the lymphatic system has no such pump. It relies solely on the body's physical movement to move lymph fluid around.

When the lymphatic fluid moves along freely, cells are able to get the oxygen and other nutrients they need. The lymphatic system is also responsible for removing metabolic waste, toxins, abnormal cells, bacteria, and viruses from the body. When a person is relatively inactive, the lymph fluid becomes congested, stagnant, and toxic. A sluggish lymphatic system causes a suppressed immune system and paves the way for many common diseases.

It is important to note that any kind of exercise will keep the lymphatic system flushed, but the rebounder is the most efficient way to move lymph fluid around. This is because bouncing, a vertical motion exercise, smoothly opens and closes the one-way valves that make up the lymphatic system. Most other exercises, like walking or jogging, are dominated by horizontal movements that are not as effective at moving lymph.

Jumping on a rebounder, even gently, increases lymph flow by as much as 15-30 times. This means that bouncing just a few minutes several times a day will fully flush your lymphatic system and invigorate your immune system. Rebounding is also a low impact exercise, meaning just about anyone can benefit. Stabilizer bars are available for those unsure of their balance.

Despite the lack of attention rebounders receive, bouncing on a high quality unit is one of the healthiest exercises around. The benefits go well beyond a stronger immune system, but it is undeniably one of the most important ways we can benefit from this fun and easy activity.
