Pubblicato: 03/05/2024 | Autore: Julie Gunn

If you suffer from a sluggish gut, it can leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable and result in constipation. But did you know exercise is a great way to improve digestion naturally? Explore with us!

When our gut is not functioning optimally, the stool can travel too slowly and lose too much hydration along the way – resulting in constipation, bloating and discomfort. Of course, the first thing we need to do is make sure we’re eating fibre-rich foods, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough Magnesium. Try our Wellness Packs or Multivitamin & Mineral supplements that contain essential vitamins and minerals that our body needs and get support with regularity. But did you know that exercise can stimulate the digestive system and bring relief to constipation?
● Aerobic exercises that get your blood pumping, like running, swimming, and dancing, can boost your digestive health.
● Yoga-inspired stretching exercises stimulate the gut by massaging our insides.
Discover our favourite asanas to improve gut health and alleviate constipation discomfort.

1. Seated twist

Sit on the floor with your back straight and legs straight out in front of you. Bend one leg as close as you can towards your body, keeping your foot flat on the floor. Cross the foot over the straight leg and hold on to it with the opposite arm. Use your arm to pull your body closer to your leg in a twisting motion. Hold for a few seconds and release. Repeat 10 times and then swap sides.

2. Knee hug

Lie on your back, relax, and bend your legs. Hold on to your knees with your hands and draw them up to your chest, holding them firmly against your body. Rock gently from side to side about 5 times. Release your legs back to the floor and then repeat the exercise 5 times.

3. Body bend

Stand with your feet 20-30cm apart for balance. Starting from the neck, roll your head carefully down towards the floor until it is hanging as low as it can. Holding on to your legs, gently pull your body closer to your thighs for a few seconds and release. Repeat 10 times.
