KEEP MOVING TO STAY ALIVE!
EXERCISE helps to promote healthy stomach function. It does this by speeding up digestive processes and increasing blood flow to all our organs, which makes them, work more efficiently.
When we exercise all our intestinal muscles also contract which helps to keep everything moving along, preventing constipation and other problems like bloating and too much gas.
We need to aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day and use every opportunity we have throughout the day to squeeze in some more exercise.
For example we should walk up stairs instead of taking the lift, jog on the spot while waiting for the kettle to boil, walk or cycle rather than driving, and dance while listening to music.
Regular exercise will also help to keep our weight down. Studies show that even small weight gains are linked to an increase in heartburn or acid reflux problems.
This is a common condition in which the valve between the stomach and oesophagus doesn’t close completely allowing stomach acid to reflux back into the oesophagus.
The result is great discomfort and unpleasant symptoms like belching. Losing even a few kilograms if we are overweight will quickly help to ease digestive discomfort and problems like acid reflux.
Lastly exercise is one of the best stress-busters around. As stress negatively affects many aspects of stomach health ex- ercise will also help to relieve all types of digestive problems. And don’t forget that regular exercise will help us to sleep better and feel happier. So, the sooner we move it, the better.
