It doesn't provide sufficient information to verify any precise claim. I
assume they are talking about fairly moderate aerobic exercise, in which
case 30-45 minutes may be needed to gain full benefit. That doesn't
conflict with my claim that 20-25 minutes of more intense aerobic exercise
produces the same benefits. It's also more time efficient and results in
higher performance capacity.
One thing that I don't think has been mentioned but which matters: If
you're doing any form of regular exercise, you'll reduce the free radical
by-products and reduce oxidative stress if you're taking daily supplements
of anti-oxidants. The basics are good -- C, E, Selenium, and so on. I'm now
taking twice a day doses of a personalized formula prepared by the Kronos
Clinic. The tests there determined where oxidative damage was coming from
and how to reduce it.
