Currently, there is an increase evidence about the beneficial effects of physical activity, particularly of physical exercise in some diseases of the gastrointestinal system, related to its systemic anti-inflammatory role. However, it is necessary to consider some of the exercise variables such as volume and exercise intensity. Specifically, the execution of long duration and high intensity exercises, together with a state of dehydration, postprandial and high environmental temperature, could contribute to the physiological expression of the exercise-induced gastrointestinal syndrome and the expression and/or worsening of gastrointestinal diseases symptoms.
