An Exercise Routine:
A Simple Step To A Healthy Colon

One of the steps in maintaining a healthy colon is to establish an exercise routine. When you exercise on a regular basis, you help stimulate regular bowel movements. In turn, this will help promote a clean and healthy colon.

How Does Exercise Help The Colon?

Participating in a regular exercise program has many beneficial effects on all systems of the body, and is very important in improving your colon health. Exercise improves blood flow, circulation and increases the oxygenation throughout the gastrointestinal system.

In addition, exercise plays a huge role in managing stress and improving your overall emotional state of mind. When you participate in an exercise program, your brain releases endorphins, which are natural morphine-like substances, which provide you with a feeling of happiness.

Scientific research has proven that the bowel wall contains the same receptors as the brain, and undergoes similar neurological processes. In essence, the bowel wall has a mind of its own. It makes decisions regarding absorption and bowel movements. These decisions are often made based on your emotional state.

Participating in a regular exercise plan offers both physical and emotional benefits, which both have a positive impact on your colon.
