Highlights • Acute exercise is an immune system adjuvant that improves defense activity and metabolic health.• Data support a clear inverse relationship between moderate exercise training and illness risk.• Exercise training has an anti-inflammatory influence mediated through multiple pathways.• Illness risk is increased in athletes during periods of intensified training and competition.• Increased carbohydrate and polyphenol intake is an effective nutritional strategy for immune support… Expand
