Exercise and gut
As if we needed more proofs that exercising is good for your health! A recent review (2019), acknowledged the growing evidence that physical fitness influences the gut microbiome and as a result, promotes health. In particular, it boosts immune function, lowers susceptibility to infection, lowers the inflammatory response and increases tissue repair. What’s not to like? And don’t forget, exercising can take many shapes and forms. You do not have to morph into an athlete to reap the benefits. Aim for 30 mn everyday and start gently in the beginning.
Walking, swimming, dancing even, are all gentle ways to exercise! So get moving!
