Regular exercise may be the ticket if you're looking for a safe way to prevent colds. And you don't have to run a marathon, either. Moderate activity is all you need.

Exercise improves your overall fitness, which can help boost your immune system, the body's defense against infections.

Some studies show that "moderate-intensity" exercise may cut down the number of colds you get. That activity includes a 20- to 30-minute walk, every day, going to the gym every other day, or biking with your kids a few times a week.
