Sedentary behavior is closely related to the occurrence and development of many chronic diseases. Increasing the level of physical activity, such as physical exercise, is a tool for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. Recent studies have found that the occurrence and development of many chronic diseases are related to the changes of intestinal flora. Although it is not clear whether the imbalance of intestinal flora is the cause or result of the disease, studies have shown that probiotic intervention can improve the symptoms of the disease. Therefore, it is speculated that regulating the intestinal flora may be a feasible method for the treatment of diseases. There are many influencing factors of intestinal flora. As an environmental factor, whether physical activity level is an influencing factor of intestinal flora has not been fully evaluated. Intestinal flora, as a new target for disease treatment, is closely related to body health. As an intervention means, exercise can effectively regulate the distribution of intestinal flora, improve the diversity of flora and promote the balance of intestinal microecology.
