Turns out, maybe not. There may be too much of a good thing. The above-linked article claims (without actually linking to the study, tsk tsk) that at a certain point, a long workout may drain your body of zinc, a key mineral that helps your immune system.
So I just took a zinc supplement. (I don’t usually — just when I’m sick to try to give my immune system a boost.)
Note: I AM NOT SAYING TO WORK OUT LESS. I am just saying that everything needs to be kept in balance.
What do you think? Do you get sick more often when you work out more?
