Exercise is your Friend when Struggling with Constipation
When you’re battling constipation and struggling to get things moving, one of the best solutions can be to literally get moving. A research review published in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterologyfound that exercise can improve symptoms of constipation. Studies have even linked regular exercise to significant relief from irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, including constipation. . . . So how does it work? Regular exercise reduces the amount of time it takes for food to move through the gastrointestinal tract. This reduced transit time means that the body has less opportunity to absorb water content from the stool during the digestive process.
