The benefits of cycling for the digestive system
The benefits of riding a bicycle were not limited to what we mentioned in our previous article on stimulating blood circulation and promoting heart and respiratory health , but also included several areas such as muscles, joints, and even the digestive system. This is the purpose of our conversation today.
In our article today, we will talk about how cycling can benefit our digestive system and enhance its work, and what is the impact of this effect on our lives.
What are the benefits of cycling for the digestive system:
It was found, according to studies conducted by several universities in the United States of America, that sports that fall under the classification of aerobic activities have a significant impact on health.
This means that a sport such as riding a bicycle greatly affects the entire body. Likewise, it also has an effect on the digestive system as follows:
The effect of cycling on the digestive system:
- Riding a bicycle improves the muscles of the abdomen and stomach. Thus, this causes more quality of the digestion process and the efficiency of the work of the stomach.
Which causes the reduction of any problems related to the process of digestion.
- Reducing the amount of water that comes out of the body with the waste, through two mechanisms:
- The first is that riding a bicycle increases the need to drink water, which means an increase in the amount of water stored in the body.
- Riding a bicycle facilitates the digestion process as well as the absorption of fluids in the body, which reflects well on the rate of water in the body. In other words, the body excretes less water when riding a bicycle.
- The process of burning fat, especially in the abdominal area, restores vitality and activity to the parts of the digestive system, and makes it work better.
This is because the accumulation of fat in this area is considered a negative thing that prevents access to the efficiency of the work of these parts, especially if the amount of fat is large.
- On the other hand, riding a bicycle reduces the period of stay of food in the intestines, and this causes more comfort and prevents some gastrointestinal pain
resulting from this.
For example bulges.
Benefits of cycling for the colon:
It has also been shown that one of the most important benefits of cycling for the digestive system is the positive effects it has on the colon . This topic will be discussed in detail in a later article.
However, it is necessary to go through it, even a little, when talking about the benefits of cycling for the digestive system.
What are the benefits of cycling for the colon:
Recently, because of the change in the quality of food in our lives, whether we rely on ready-made foods or contain some types of our foods on hormones. This led to major changes that occurred in our body, and many of us suffer from them, the most important of which are:
- Allergy to certain types of foods
- Symptoms caused by high blood cholesterol.
- High blood sugar
Of course, there is the most important symptom, which is the bloating of the colon, which is annoying to many people, and through the practice of riding a bicycle regularly and periodically, all previous symptoms can be mitigated and significantly reduced.
Where a study conducted by an Australian university showed that riding a bicycle has a direct effect on improving the digestion process and thus reducing the annoying bloating of the colon.
This means that people who engage in certain sports activities, such as cycling, have been observed to suffer little from what is called flatulence
Or even any other problems associated with the digestive system compared to people who do not do any sports.
In addition, it was found that riding a bicycle prevents and significantly reduces the incidence of colon cancer. According to a study conducted by a Swedish university on 600 cyclists, and then compared the results with people who did not engage in any sporting activity or ride a bicycle, as it was found that the incidence of colon cancer decreased after practicing bicycle riding by more than 30%.
Benefits of riding a bicycle in the prevention of diseases of the digestive system:
Of course, whenever we talk about any benefits and in every field, this certainly means that there is prevention from resulting diseases. This is, of course, with regard to the bicycle, as the benefits of riding a bicycle are largely reflected in the resistance to some diseases related to the digestive system.
Riding a bicycle reduces diseases of the digestive system:
- It has been found, according to many studies, that riding a bicycle reduces the incidence of constipation. Which is special because of the bad effect that constipation poses to many people.
- Abdominal pain, especially in the intestines, which is accompanied by several symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea.
- Diverticulosis and the resulting complications and pain, which is the same as we talked about previously. In our Arabic language, it means the bulges that occur in the colon.
