In order for the digestive system to remain healthy and function smoothly, it is important to keep the body mobile. As gastroenterologist and nutritionist Guzel Evstigneeva told Moscow 24, if you sit regularly for a long time, there is a risk of constipation and a decrease in the contractility of the gallbladder – it becomes lethargic and inactive.
According to the doctor, a weak gallbladder reduces the production of bile, which stimulates bowel activity. In addition, bile is directly involved in the absorption of fats. If it is not produced in the right amount, there is a problem of irregular stools and a tendency to constipation, as well as the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins by the body.
In addition, impaired body processing of fats due to a lack of bile negatively affects the skin and hormonal balance, since dermatological health and hormone production are closely related to how the body receives fats.
At the same time, Evstigneeva clarified, for the health of the gastrointestinal tract, it is important not only how mobile a person is.
“In addition to a sedentary lifestyle, these are nutrition, stress and heredity,” the physician called the factors that affect his condition.
