A regular exercise regime has numerous health benefits. Including physical activity in our daily routine has beneficial effects on our digestive system as well. Having a healthy gut microbiota (microorganisms living in our intestinal tract) is the key to ensuring proper digestive functioning. The composition of the intestinal microbiota is associated with our diet, lifestyle and exercise levels. An increase in our physical fitness activities ensures an increase in the diversity of these organisms. And, this translates to better digestion, a better immune system and favorable metabolic profile. The more the physical activity, the greater the health benefits!
