Whole Body Vibration (WBV) Significantly Improves How Well Our Body Uses Glucose as Energy

by fitness journalist
Whole body vibration (WBV) can significantly improve how well our body uses glucose as an energy source and adjust our microbiome and immune cells to reduce diabetic inflammation, says a new study.

The researchers, using a mouse model, showed that WBV alters the microbiome, a collection of microorganisms in our body, which help protect […]
