Gastroenterologist Maria Badalyan, in an interview with Channel Five, told what problems with the gastrointestinal tract a sedentary lifestyle can cause.

According to the expert, the lack of movement has a bad effect on the intensity of metabolism. So, there is a slowdown in the activity of the gastrointestinal tract at all stages of the passage of food — enzymes are poorly excreted, intestinal motility suffers. This leads to an increased risk of developing gastrointestinal diseases.

Badalyan noted that a sedentary lifestyle can cause problems with the liver and pancreas.

“It has already been proven that the gallbladder secretes its bile more actively when a person moves, especially when he bends over, raises his legs high,” the expert said.
