Gut and Exercise

Why is exercise important?

Regular exercise is not only a good habit for a healthy lifestyle, it’s also great for physical health and can boost gut health and mood! As well as enhancing microbiome diversity, exercise supports immune function and eases digestive transit. Picture your digestive system as a smooth flowing river, and exercise as the magical paddle that keeps things moving. By engaging in regular physical activity, you’re not only energising your body but also promoting smooth digestion.


Let's get moving

For some, gentle exercise like yoga can also help to create a calm headspace which supports good communication between the gut and the brain.

Exercise doesn’t have to mean long runs or gym workouts

A brisk walk in the park or a game of tennis counts too! Finding an activity that you enjoy will mean that you’re more likely to stick with it and continue to reap the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle.
