IS THIS CAUSING BLOATING?

Your core muscles and your posture go together like white on rice.

And … interestingly enough … so does your posture and your digestive system.

How you sit or stand after you eat can play a surprising role in how your body functions!

2 Different Ways Your Posture Affects Digestion

1. Slouching after a meal can trigger acid reflux.

When you’re leaning forward, it can put pressure on your abdomen, which can force stomach acid up into your esophagus.

This isn’t only uncomfortable. Over time, it can lead to damaging the lining of both your esophagus and your throat. Not good!

2. Slouching may contribute to bloating.

Studies suggest the pressure caused by slouching actually slows down gas/waste as it travels through your intestines, potentially leading to bloating and discomfort.

If you experience bloating after you eat, check your posture!

Those are just two reasons why it’s important to keep those core muscles strong – so they can support your body in a neutral and balanced posture!

You’ll notice a difference in your fitness, plus it can have a big impact on how you feel and move after you eat.

How is YOUR core doing? Having a strong and stable core is a key part of a well-rounded fitness and wellness program.
