Rebounding has many health benefits. Rebounding increases both blood and lymph circulation. Comparing the circulatory system to the lymphatic system, the average person has 5 – 6 liters of blood circulated through the heart. and the lymphatic system has three times that much fluid. The circulatory system has the heart to pump the blood throughout the body. The lymphatic system has to work against gravity and needs to rely on you to move it through your body. The lymph systems one way valves can be increased by about ten times bouncing and jumping than at rest. Thus you are removing toxins at a higher rate and allowing the white blood cells to get to areas of the body where they need to be – increasing your immunity!
This is one of the reasons why less active people are more susceptible to illnesses. Poor diet can burden the lymph system as well with more accumulation of toxins and waste in the body.
Almost anyone can benefit from using a rebounder. You do not have to jump on a rebounder in order to gain benefits. You can bounce, or if limited mobility can sit or if more limited even just rest your feet on the rebounder while someone else is doing the bouncing can still have an impact on lymph flow.
Rebounding can produce up to 2 – 3 times vertical gravitation. This can serve as a bone strengthener while remaining low impact. It is gentle on joints, cartilage and vertebrae. It increase lymphocyte activity, strengthen your muscular system, development, and endurance, helps to improve balance and proprioception, strengthens cells, improves cardiovascular function, and can help to improve the effects of other exercises. There are also some other benefits such as mixing up your routine, working on coordination, rhythm and boosting your mood!
