Exercise and Why it’s Important for your Gut Microbiome

The question is does exercise have an impact on the Gut Microbiome. I would say the answer to that question is yes. The other question of adding probiotics and prebiotics to the diet is also a yes. Before you go running to your closest health food store, I would also suggest adding exercise into your weekly routine.
Our Gut Microbiome has a significant impact on our everyday life more, and more studies are showing how the gut microbiome or the trillions of bacteria living in our gut affect the skin, immune system, and even mental health. Downing a probiotic is an excellent idea, but if that’s all you are planning on doing it won’t be enough if indeed your gut is imbalanced.
Adding exercise is one of the keys to improving the gut flora. Why? One of the things I have learned over the years is that we should not worry too much about things we can’t control like genetics. Yes, it may have an impact, but we can mitigate that impact by focusing on what we can control. We can alter own Gut Microbiome and one of the ways to do this is through exercise. Studies show the more physically active you are, the more diverse your gut microbiome is.
