Daily Exercise Routine

Exercise is one of the most important actions you can take to improve colon health. Exercise keeps the blood flowing and improves circulation. More blood provides your colon and the rest of the gastrointestinal system with more oxygen. Even stretching, a liitle yoga or a simple 30-minute walk will help to maintain a healthy colon.

Additionally, exercise benefits your heart, helps maintain your weight and lowers your risk of developing some types of cancer, including colon cancer. Try for 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day.

Limit your alcohol intake and quit smoking. If you choose to drink alcohol, drink no more than one or two drinks a day. If you smoke, quit.

Lastly, try to eat as many healthy fats as you can, as found in olive oil, salmon rich in Omega-3, avocados and nuts; likewise, try to cut down as much as you can on eating processed fats, such as those found in fried foods.
