2. Digestive System Health

The digestive system covers a lot of ground. The esophagus, stomach, intestines, and various other internal organs work together to receive and process all our foods, extracting nutrients to be transported into the body and passing on the waste. Exercise can improve the overall functions of the digestive system by increasing blood flow, building abdominal muscles, and creating a need for additional nutrition throughout the body.
