Keep Your Digestive Tract on Track
You've heard that regular exercise is one of the best things you can do to increase overall health and longevity. Now you can add another reason to get your body moving. Physical activity helps keep your digestive tract running smoothly and also relieves stress, a major cause of heartburn.
To help ease heartburn, fit some movement into your day, every day, whether that means hitting the gym, taking a 20-minute bike ride or simply strolling around the block. It's a good idea to wait at least 30 minutes after eating before exercising. Some exercises such as crunches or a core workout on a full stomach can lead to heartburn. Also, avoid engaging in activities that require a lot of bending (such as gardening) immediately after eating.
